Photovoltaic PV Systems

Types of PV Systems

A grid-connect solar photovoltaic PV system is installed at your premise and uses the PUC electrical grid network to feedback electricity produced by your system.

For stand-along, off-grid or battery back up system PV systems which are independent of the PUC network and use battery storage see our off-grid PV page.

A hybrid system uses both the grid and batteries.

Net Metering

Currently, Seychelles has a net metering policy where electricity produced by your PV system is recorded to a separate meter and PUC credit your bill at the end of the month.

For more information about how PV works in the Seychelles please see our FAQ page.

Grid-connect PV Systems

ESS has been installing rooftop PV in the Seychelles since 2012. Therefore, we have experience with grid-tied roof top PV system and are approved by the Seychelles Energy Commission and Public Utility Corporation.

 If you would like to benefit from renewable energy and save on your monthly electricity bill, call us today and we can assist you with the application process.

Photovoltaic PV Panels

During the day the photovoltaic panel coverts the suns energy to electricity. There are two types of PV panels depending on the manufacturing process, poly-crystalline or mono-crystalline.

Energy Solutions Seychelles has a range of PV panels from tired-one manufacturers and we can supply a product to meet your project specifications and budget.

The efficiency of the panels can be further enhanced by using optimisers. The optimiser is installed on the panel by tracking the power output of each individual module to increase the performance of the overall system.

Call us today to get more information of how you can offset your electricity bill with renewable energy.

Grid-Connect Inverters

The energy from your solar panel is converted from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) by the inverters.

At ESS we are not tied to only one brand so can recommend the best inverter for your project. We have installed inverters from a variety of manufactures and honor manufactures warranty.

A grid connect inverter will monitor the voltage and frequency of the PUC grid.  Additionally, the inverter will smooth out any power fluctuation and shut down during spikes.

The invert is designed to shutdown during power outages as it is a safety requirement for grid maintenance personnel.

Our professional PV installer will design a system specifically to meet your needs and to conform to Seychelles electrical requirements. Call us to make an appointment with our professional staff.

Roof Top PV Installation

Solar PV panels can be mounted on the roof of your house or business to produce electricity.

 If you are constructing a new house or building, we recommend informing your architect so they can make provisions for renewable energy. We are happy to consult with your architect or electrical contractor regarding the current Seychelles PV regulations.

 If you have an existing premise ESS can conduct a site visit to inspect the current electrical connection and roof to check if it is suitable for installation.

 If your roof is not suitable for a roof mount system, please see PV structures below for alternative mounting structures.

 Call us today to make an appointment for a free site visit.

Free Standing PV Structure

If your roof is not suitable for PV or you live in a remote location, then there are other ways to go green. We have installed our panels on other freestanding structures such as green house and garage.

  • Car ports
  • Green house
  • Patio
