Nigeria faces a challenge of epileptic power supply, leading to the increasing use of alternate power sources such as solar panels. However, with the proliferation of solar panels in the market, it’s easy to buy the wrong type without the right knowledge.
To install solar panels in your home or office, you need a 12V battery rated at 200AH and a solar panel, which can charge panels with power ranging from 125W to 400W. For a 125W panel, you’ll need multiple panels per battery, with the option of using 2 or 3 panels per battery and a 0.8KVA inverter. If you choose a 200W panel, you can use 1 or 2 panels per battery, and the recommended inverter is the 1.5KVA inverter.
A solar charge controller is necessary to protect against overcharging and overvoltage and reduce battery performance or lifespan. The combination of a solar panel with a power wall inverter and a controller can cost as much as ₦725000, depending on the number of batteries. The price of a solar panel battery can be as high as ₦175,000 per unit.
Su-Kam, Crown Micro, Rubitec, Trina, and Talker Energy are Nigeria’s most popular solar panel brands. Su-Kam solar panels are high-efficiency thin-film solar panels that outperform conventional solar modules. Crown Micro, founded in 1992, produces enclosures, power supplies, UPS, and inverters. Rubitec Nigeria specializes in renewable energy, and one of its most popular products is its solar panel. Trina Solar is ranked one of the leading solar panel companies globally, and Talker Energy solar panels are multi-crystal solar cells with an efficiency of over 17%.
