Solar Panel Installation

Megatricity prioritises our solar panel installation process, choosing to focus on customer satisfaction and convenience. We deploy the skills of our technical team experienced to provide complete turnkey solar solutions for all our customers, which includes everything from the initial site visit to the design, solar panel installation, commissioning and maintenance of the solar systems. A dedicated engineer is selected and assigned to each project from the initial phase onwards to ensure quality standards and timelines are met throughout the entire solar panel installation process.

We go to great lengths to customise and tailor all our solar panel installations and solar system projects as per our customers’ requirements, catering to a variety of mounting methodologies such as tile, asbestos or amano roofs, concrete slabs, as well as ground mount solar systems.

Megatricity has the capacity to provide an end-to-end, in-house solution for a solar system with a HT interconnection.

Here’s how we carry out our solar panel installations in Kenya, step by step:

  • Initial site visit and inspection
  • Designing the most optimum solution giving due consideration to the client’s needs
  • Obtaining necessary clearances from CEB/LECO
  • Material mobilization
  • Installation of equipment
  • Testing and commissioning
  • Grid connection

Frequently Ask Questions

What to consider when installing a solar power panel at your home?

  • Available space oon te roof and strength of the roof.
  • The amount of light that the roof gets.
  • Selection of a reliable institution to insatll a solar power system.

Do solar power systems increase home value?

Yes, several studies have highlighted that having a solar power system can increase the home value of your property. A property with an already installed solar panel system is often valued higher than similar house without one, as it can be seen as an attractive feature, especially by potential buyers.

Do i need special permission for solar panel installation in my roof?

No permission is required for an off-grid solar panel system which is not connected to the grid. However, for a grid-connected solar PV system, it is necessary to get permission from the authtorities and follow the right procedure for approvals.

Our team at Metrocity will aid you in the entire process of receiving the necessary permissions

How much does it cost to install solar panels?

The cost for the installation of solar panels varies due to numerous factors, including the brand/ model of solar panels of your choice, the capacity of the solar PV system required, the type of roof you have and the angle at your roof is installed, labour costs and so on.

Are there bank loans for solar panels in Kenya?

Most banks in Kenya offer special discounts and loan facilities for the purchase of solar power systems as well as inverters and battery backup systems. Contact Metrocity team interest-free easy payment plan options.

How many hours of sunlight do solar panles need?

Solar panels work best in direct sunlight, but, despite popular belief, they can also work on cloudy days and in partial shade. This is because photovoltaic (PV) panels create energy by using light particles called photons, which are present in both direct and indirect sunlight, allowing solar panels to work in both settings.

Regardless of the solar panels’ capacity to operate under low light settings, you will get the most out of your solar panels if they receive a reasonable amount of direct sunlight every day. On average, your solar panels need 4 sun hours to run optimally, which is roughly 4kW per 1kWp per day.

What are the effects of shade?

Although solar panels may theoretically operate under low light conditions, a little shade can affect a solar panel’s power output drastically. Shade from a “soft” source such as a distant tree branch or cloud can usually limit the quantity of light reaching the solar panel’s cells, but shade from “hard” sources such as waste or bird droppings on the top of the panel can completely block light from reaching solar cells.

If even only 1% of a photovoltaic solar panel is in the shade, it is possible to lose 50-80% of the power production from your entire solar plant. If enough cells are hard-shaded, the module will not convert any energy. In fact, solar panel shading can gradually drain energy from your entire system over time.
