Here’s why you need to fill out a solar load profile form in Kenya
Apart from doing an electronic energy audit, An accurately filled load profile form shows how much energy a building uses at each time of the day for each day of the year.
A completed solar load profile form is required,
To accurately determine the energy demand each client intending to make the switch to solar requires.
As a solar solutions provider, we would like to know how many lights,
Appliances and electronics you run in your house and how many hours during the day or night they are in use.
Clients who give inaccurate data end up having a solar system sized below their load energy demand.
Hence poor performance of their solar system.
Inaccurate load profile data leads to client complaints on why,
Their solar system shuts off very early during the night or trips during the day.
In layman’s terms here is an example of why you need to fill out a solar load profile form in Kenya
The Water Tank Example
If you experience frequent water rationing in the city or town you live in, you’d agree that every time the city turns the water back on,
You rush to fill up your water tank as much as possible,
Knowing how long the stored water in the tank will last your household when,
The water gets turned off again by the city.
Say the stored water in the tank lasts you 4 days until the next time the city turns the water back on to refill the water tanks.
But on a rare occasion you had a party with guests over who spent the night and the water in the tank ended up lasting only 2 days.
The solution to fixing such a situation to never happen again is to buy a larger capacity water tank,
To cater for the days when you have visitors over or extra demand for water.
Same thing happens with solar systems,
The bigger the energy demand the bigger the energy storage system (battery bank) required,
To keep your loads powered through the night before they recharge again during the day.
