FAQ – Solar and Inverter power systems


Find answers to some of the frequently asked questions on Solar and Inverter power systems. These questions are mainly from our customers so we shall keep on updating them as we get more questions.

How can I use solar to eliminate use of generator?

Yes, you can use Solar power to eliminate the use of generator. Once your solar panel is mounted, the electricity generated can effectively recharge your Inverter batteries. You may want to read this post: A guide to buying authentic Solar Power system in Nigeria


Can the Solar charge my inverter and still retain its own energy at the same time?

If I got your question correctly, solar energy is said to be renewable because it is from the sun which is always available during the day.

The electricity from the solar panels will recharge your Inverter batteries as long as the sun is up.


How many panels and what capacities of panels do I need to power my bulbs, TV and rechargeable fan? What is the cost implication?

The number of solar panels you will need depends on the number of batteries you use. You can install our 12V/1.5KVA Inverter system which is rated about 1000 Watts and supports at least one 12V battery and 2 of 12V/200W solar panels.

Let us know the number of TVs, Rechargeable fans and bulbs you want to power so that we can send you a quotation in a separate e-mail.


What is the guaranteed duration to discharge?

Your system, with batteries like our German made Varta and Exide batteries can take you all night. But once again, the duration depends on the number of loads/electrical appliances on the batteries.


What is the guaranteed life span of the device before i change it?

Our Solar panels have a rated life span of 25 years. Unlike most other conventional batteries, our German made batteries can last up to 15 years on continuous use. Our Xantra Inverters will last for a lifetime when well-maintained.

    Hello Sir, please I would like to get Two 12v 200ah batteries for my 1KW solar inverter. I don’t have much load – my load will often be around 100 -150 watts altogether. (1 TV, DVD, 1 laptop, 1 fan, 2 light bulbs (<20w) and I don't even use all at the same time). Does under-use or low load cause any problems?
    Thank you.
