The SolShare model, developed by Australian manufacturer Allume Energy, connects all apartments in the building to a single roof solar panel and saves people from additional installation costs.
The use of solar energy is increasing day by day, but individual accessibility and cost problems continue. The SolShare system is one of the effective solutions for these problems.
The transition to renewable energy continues at full speed. Both states and individuals are trying to obtain their electricity needs from clean energy sources. In this context, a residential block in Wales, broke new ground in the world, by connecting all residential units (within a single building) to the same rooftop solar panels system.
Can this new SolShare system, developed by equipping all apartments with a single solar energy system, create a green energy revolution in buildings?
The entire building is connected to a single solar panel system
Traditional roof solar panel systems require separate installation for each apartment. This means extra costs both for the building and for the individual. The SolShare model, developed by Australian manufacturer Allume Energy, connects all apartments in the building to a single roof solar panel and saves people from additional installation costs.
The SolShare system is at a level that can meet 75 percent of the electricity needs of each apartment. According to tests and calculations, with SolShare, each apartment can save 50 percent (OR between £390 to £530) on its annual electricity bill.
Welsh Minister for Climate Change, Julie James, emphasizes the importance of the system, saying, “At a time when costs are rising, improving the energy efficiency of homes will not only help us tackle the climate crisis, but will also help with the cost of living crisis facing families.”
In addition to saving on hardware, the company says SolShare has increased solar energy use by more than 25 percent. The new system can be used in both new construction and existing buildings, as it does not require any changes to the existing supply or measurement infrastructure.
