At SotySolar we have taken a step further to become your solar advisor , your independent advisor capable of designing the best solution for your company or your home. How do we do it? Now we tell you.
What is self-consumption?
Energy self-consumption through photovoltaic panels is freedom. Thanks to your own installation of solar panels you can capture the energy of the sun and transform it into electricity. What it means to say goodbye to the bill of light.
You can choose an independent installation for your own consumption that will be supported by batteries that store energy . In this way, you will guarantee a constant and continuous supply over time. It is a way to have light anywhere, without paying the high transport costs of the electricity distribution network. These facilities are formed by solar panels , a charge regulator, solar accumulators and photovoltaic inverters.
On the other hand, there is the model connected to the network. It is a system connected to an internal circuit of consumption and the general network. In this case you do not need batteries or accumulators, because if at a specific moment you need more electricity, you always have the electric network at your disposal. In addition, you can choose only to self-consume the energy or even sell the surplus green energy to the electricity companies and charge for it.

The whole process in five easy steps
Once you have contacted us, we start working.
1. The roof
Publishing the roof is the first step and it is very important. We need to know where to install solar panels to analyze their situation and their possibilities. We will also ask you for a electricity bill to know what your consumption is and tell you the savings you are going to get.
2. The offers
Once we have located the roof and we have studied the situation, our platform is put to work to make a selection of self-consumption budgets with the installation of solar panels, the financing options customized for you and, then, we process all the information to send it to you in a simple and understandable format. We like to say that our mission is to facilitate the purchase of photovoltaic solar energy installations. No more secrets, transparently and without having to find budgets until you feel lost .
As we are independent and we want the best for you, our advisors accompany you and advise you in your choice. If in the end you decide not to accept any offer, do not worry, you just have to communicate it so that the installers update their database and do not contact you anymore.
3. The agreement of the conditions
If you decide to take the step towards sustainability, green energy and savings, with a clear budget, it is time for you to choose the installer. You only need to click on the “Choose Installer” button and from there confirm the budget. From the platform we notify the professional or installation company that you are interested in hiring their services, but you have to know that you are not obligated and that you can change your mind. In any case, from this moment, it will be the technician who will contact you to send you the contract and the conditions.
4. The installation
Once you have signed the contract, it is time for installation. The same installer will request the permissions and will manage the documentation that is needed and, in addition, will help you to present the applications to receive grants or subsidies. If you live in a house, in two or three days you will have your installation ready. In the case of industrial buildings, the time depends on how big it is.
Once the installation is underway, say goodbye to the electricity bills . It is the moment when you feel free and start saving. From the zero minute you will begin to generate green , clean and sustainable energy . From there you can evaluate the installer , share your experience, monitor your consumption and, if you wish, participate in our forum to talk with others like you.
