This DIY solar panel kit from Plug-In Solar is a simple way to generate electricity for free to power appliances and lights in homes, garages, workshops, sheds and even stables or beach huts with metal sheet roofs. The solar panel kit can be installed by any DIY enthusiast without the need for an electrician, so it makes solar power easy and hassle-free. This kit is compatible with pitched and flat metal roofs and for the best performance we recommend you install this kit at the angle.

This 500W DIY solar panel kit contains everything you need to successfully install this solar system onto a metal flat roof and generate free electricity to power your appliances. Plug-In Solar kits include all you need to start saving money on your electricity bills, without the need for government incentives. No need for an EPC inspection, MCS Certification or The Feed-In Tariff.

When installed this solar panel has a 500W capacity, meaning it can generate enough energy to power all the following each year: 52 tumble dryer cycles, 82 microwave oven cycles, 71 washing machine cycles and 12 hours a day every day of the year for your fridge freezer (Based on A+ rated appliances or higher). The average energy consumption of standard lightbulbs on for 4 hours a day in the UK is 40W so this solar panel is perfect for powering the lights in sheds, workshops or the garage (anywhere with a mains grid connection).

This set comes with 2 x 250W solar panels that are approximately 1640mm x 992mm x 35mm each (Please note some solar panels may slightly differ in size). The kit contains everything you need to install them onto a metal sheet roof too.

Other items in the kit include the micro-inverter which is responsible for converting direct current produced by solar panels into the alternating current which can be used around your home.
