WHY You're Told You Can't Have More Solar Panels Fitted

Looking to get solar fitted because of the energy crisis or already had it fitted and want more? You might notice all the quotes you have seem to only want to fit a 3.68kw inverter infact I’ve seen a 3.68kw inverter fitted on a home with 10kw of panels on the roof and a 15kwh home storage battery but WHY? It comes down to how electricians have extra work to carry out if you want anything bigger. Here in the UK the DNO need to ensure the local grid wires don’t melt. All solar at 3.68kw or below requires ONLY a g98 form which is sent in AFTER the solar is connected however if you want it JUST a tiny bit bigger your need to fill in a G99 form this form is the same form for a solar farm or wind turbine and is very long and complex
