    FAQ

    All About Net Billing

    How does Net Billing work?

    According to the Net-Billing method, the producer-consumer uses the production of electricity from the PV system solely for Net-Billing and therefore will be compensated for the surplus electricity returned to the grid. Any energy produced that is not used for self-consumption but is returned to the grid will be counted by a meter which will be installed by EAC. This surplus will credit to the producer on a variable tariff known as the avoidance cost. The PV power of each system must range from 10 kW to 10000 kW per applicant and per unit.

    Which types of businesses
    are applicable for this?

    Any individual or legal person whose premises have a commercial or industrial tariff has the right to apply for a Net-Billing PV system. This includes commercial and industrial units, public buildings, army bases, schools, agricultural and livestock units, and fishing enterprises with the purpose of producing electricity for their own use.

    Up to what percentage of my Business's
    energy needs can be covered?

    A number of factors can affect the percentage of coverage:
    – The size of the PV system installed
    – The space available for PV panels to be installed

    Why should I choose Net Billing?

    Businesses can only choose Net Billing.

    What will be my savings?

    Your annual savings will depend on the size of the PV System installed. Annual saving can be as high as 95%. Through the Techno-Economical survey that is done in advance of the Installation, you will know the extend of your annual savings.

    Where can the system be Installed?

    A PV system for the production of electricity for Net-Billing can be installed on flat or inclined roofs of existing legitimate-constructed premises or within the plot in which the consumer’s premises are located. Attention must be placed on the choice of the installation area of the PV modules to avoid any shading, especially during the hours of 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

    How much space will it require?

    For the installation of a 1 kW PV system on a roof, with PV modules sized 2.185 m x 1.005 m, a net surface area of about 5 m² is required. Thus a 20 kW PV system will require approximately 100 m².

    All About Going Solar

    Why should I switch to solar?

    Solar Power is a renewable, reliable and clean energy source. It reduces our dependence on dirty energy sources like oil, coal, and natural gas, which produce harmful emissions that affect our health and our environment.

    Solar power is self-sufficient and installing a Solar system is a safe and easy path to contribute to a sustainable future. Solar power will help you generate free power for your system’s entire lifecycle. In that way, you can get noticeable decreases in your Electricity costs.

    What is installed as part
    of a Solar System?

    Each business is different, and the equipment we install can vary from business to business. In general, here is what you can expect:

    • Solar Panels: they convert sunlight into direct current electricity (DC)
    • Inverter: it converts your energy into alternating current electricity (AC) so it can be used in your business.
    • Net Meter: it allows you to export your surplus energy back to the grid.
    Is my business good for solar?

    Multiple factors can define if your business is well suited for Solar:

    • Your location
    • The angle of your roof
    • How much shade it gets throughout the day
    • The age of the building and facilities
    • Our experts will identify the right solution for your business
    How many solar panels will
    my business need?

    It will depend on how much power you need, how much the sun can reach the ground where you are, and how much direct sun will hit your roof.

    Does the weather affects the
    production of PV solar Panels?

    The production fluctuates each season. Maximum production occurs during summer and less during winter. The panels in general will continue to produce even on cloudy or rainy days.

    Is it better to lease or buy solar panels?

    Whether you Rent-to-Own or buy a Solar System, you will save money on your Energy bill.

    With EFS Cyprus, you will be paying a total yearly amount to the Company and EAC that will be similar or less than your current Electricity bill. In this respect you are converting your current Energy expense to a Solar Investment without affecting your budget.

    Will I notice any changes after I go Solar?

    After you switch to Solar, you will not notice any differences. In fact, all your appliances and equipment that use electricity will work exactly as they did before. The only difference you will notice is how you will pay for your power. You will be paying for EFSC Cyprus a monthly payment that is lesser than your existing electricity bill.

    How long does the installation
    usually take?

    The actual installation process of having the Solar System installed on your premises can take 2 to 5 days depending on the size of the system and the work needed.
    The licensing procedures through RAEK & EAC can vary between 8-10 weeks.

    All About EV Chargers

    Where can I charge my car?

    – At home in a private garage/driveway, or at a designated parking spot / shared parking facility (common for apartments)
    – At work at your office building’s parking facility
    – In public along streets, on the highway and at any public parking facility you can think of, like shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, hospitals etc.

    Are EV chargers compatible with Solar
    systems?

    Yes. In fact, EV charging system can be easily integrated with the existing solar system without the need to dismantle it. You will be charging your electrical car with the power generated from your solar system.

    How much maintenance does
    a charger need?

    Very little. If installed properly and built modularly, every piece can be easily replaced.

    How long does it take
    to charge my car?

    Many factors can affect your charging time:
    – Your current level of battery charge
    – Your battery capacity
    – Your charging station?s capacity and settings
    – The capacity of your charging station?s energy source.
    Plug-in hybrids require 1-4 hours to be fully charged, while full-electric cars require 4-8 hours (from 0 to 100%). On average, cars are parked at home for up to 14 hours a day, and at work for around 8 hours a day. With a charging station at your disposal, all this time can be used to top up your car to 100%. With a regular socket, it will take 6 to 8 hours to fully charge your car; with a charging station, it will take 1 to 4 hours and with a fast charger, it will take around 20 to 30 minutes.
