PV Frequently Asked Questions
How does PV work in the Seychelles?
To install PV panels on you home or business, firstly you will need to apply for a PV system to Seychelles Energy Commission. We at ESS can help you with the process by analyzing your energy consumption and recommend a system sizing to match your needs and budget. We can do all the application process on your behalf, for FREE.

What system size do I need?

– Medium house or commercial 5-10kW 3 phase system
– Large commercial or hotel 10-100kW
– Solar farm or Independent Power Producer 100kW
Will my system during cloudy days?
Photovoltaic panels use sunlight to produce electricity. Even on cloudy days an abundance of light reaches the earths surface. Therefore, your PV system will still work, however less efficiently. At ESS we use yearly averages for our calculations and we are lucky Seychelles is sunny throughout the year!
