Photovoltaic Systems for Self-Consumption

A small PV-system with AEconversion Micro-Inverters is a simple, straightforward and modular way for households to reduce the power consumption through the self-production of electricity. Such a mini-PV-system can consist of one single micro-inverter and one photovoltaic module.

The micro-inverter is directly connected to the PV module and converts the generated direct current into grid-compliant alternating current. These systems are extremely flexible, can be expanded and they also individually adjust to the needs of the customer.

Advantages of Self-Consumption Systems

A self-consumption photovoltaic system enables the system owner to reduce their electricity bill by consuming their self-produced energy first and then drawing additionally needed electricity from the utility grid.

A small PV-system with micro-inverters can not only be installed on classic south facing roof areas, but also on smaller surfaces such as garage roofs, garden sheds, canopies, facades, balconies facing different directions and even on areas with partial shading. This unique feature not only allows homeowners who have the appropriate roof surfaces but also tenants to reduce their individual electricity costs.

Significant Cost Advantages

On average, each household has an electric base load of 800 kWh per year. With a slightly altered consumption behavior, up to 40% of power consumption can be generated. With the current development of electricity prices, you can expect a payback period of about 8 years for a mini-solar system. Therefore, the investment of a self-consumption system pays back quickly without EEG allowance. Due to the difference between the electricity price and the feed-in tariff under the EEG, the self-consumed kWh already contains an added value compared to feeding in.
