I have to take this into account when buying a balcony power plant

Installing a solar panel on the balcony or patio is becoming increasingly popular as it offers an easy way to generate green electricity and save money. But which criteria should be considered when choosing a balcony solar system? In this blog article, we will present some decision criteria for a mini PV system on the balcony that can help you choose the right system.

  1. Size of the system: The size of the solar system depends on the available area on the balcony or terrace. The larger the area, the larger the plant can be. However, there are also smaller systems that are suitable for balconies and terraces with limited space.

  2. Performance: The performance of the solar system depends on the size of the system and the solar radiation. Most balcony solar systems have an output of 300 to 600 watt peak (Wp). Higher performance means higher power generation, but also higher costs.

  3. Quality: The quality of the solar cells and the inverter is an important factor when choosing a solar system. High-quality components ensure a longer service life and higher efficiency.

  4. Price: The price is of course an important factor when choosing a solar system. It is important to strike a balance between price and quality. A cheap system can turn out to be more expensive in the long term if it breaks down more quickly or is less efficient.

  5. Guarantee: A guarantee on the solar system and the components is important in order to be protected against possible defects or problems. Make sure the warranty conditions are fair and transparent.

  6. Installation: Installing a balcony solar system should be easy and quick. There are systems that can be installed without drilling or screwing and are therefore also suitable for rented apartments. If you choose to install the system yourself, make sure the instructions are clear and easy to follow.

  7. Certification: Certification by independent institutions such as TÜV or VDE is an indication of the quality and safety of the solar system.

  8. Accessories: Check whether accessories such as cables, plugs or mounts are included or have to be purchased separately.

  9. Expandability: It can make sense to expand a balcony solar system later in order to generate more electricity. Make sure that the system can be expanded and that the expansion components are available.

  10. Electricity storage: A solar system on the balcony only produces electricity during the hours of sunshine. In order to be able to use the electricity produced in the evening or at night, a power storage unit can be useful. Check whether the selected solar system is compatible with an electricity storage system
