Install yourself and as soon as possible a photovoltaic panel and make part of its power consumption. This is now possible thanks to the solar kit conceived by a Nantes start-up. The product has won major DIY and home appliances brands.
After several months of research to reduce his costs, this Vertou resident south of Nantes took the solar energy step using these panels in kit form.
70 centimeters wide, a weight of 5 kilos for the price of 800 euros.
An installation that is 20 times cheaper than traditional photovoltaic panels.
“I also don’t want to put a lot of money into installing photovoltaic panels.“explains Charles Devaux.
“That’s why I chose to do it on a wall, which was really within my reach“He added.
This installation makes it possible to produce up to 15% of the energy consumed by this household of four.
A welcome introduction for its users.
I have a refrigerator that is very energy efficient. It is an old technology that is over 10 years old so it consumes a lot. The panel allows me to offset half of its monthly consumption. This represents 5 euros in savings per monthCharles Devaux, uses solar panels
A patented technology designed in 2019 in Saint-Herblain in the Loire-Atlantique in this warehouse of the company Beem Energy.
Which of its three co-founders shows us.
“This is the first step in the process. There was François who assembled the packaging containing the solar kit. And then in this second step there is David who will prepare the cash funds“explains Ralph Feghali in the middle of the boxes.
“In the cash funds we put a beembox that makes it possible to follow the production of the kit“continued co-founder of Beem Energy.
“There are also fixings that we designed and patented and allow anyone, without a professional, to put a solar panel on the front in two seconds.“added Ralph Feghali.
“I was there on the quality control panel“explains Marin, who also works for Beem Energy.
“We came to examine all the cells to ensure a lifetime of 35 to 40 years without concern.Marin explained.
The ongoing effort to attract increasingly demanding customers.
“The elementary brick is 300w. It represents approximately 15% of a household’s consumption and allows it to have a good balance of individual impact and an accessible price to taste the technology, to take this first step“tala Ralph Feghali.
We have a lot of people who, after getting the first kit, will get the second, or even the third. These are modular kits. It actually allows you to get solar energy at your own speedRalph Feghali, co-founder of Beem Energy
A rhythm adopted for two years by Clément’s Nort-sur-Erdre resident is that he installed four Beem Energy panels in his home.
“As the panels work in the sun and energy is injected directly into our network, we change our habits ” explained Clément Rimmele.
“For example, washing machines are powered by the sun to take advantage of the electricity produced by the panels.“Notes Clement.
This user purchased a second kit to significantly reduce his charges.
“In April 2020, we had an electricity bill of 146 euros. If we go to the year 2021 to compare, we will fall to 118 euros. That saves us 30 euros for the whole month“
“We can ask ourselves if tomorrow I’m going to do a bigger installation. It’s something to think about. Because if we can make 5% of our electricity, it’s interesting” study by Clément Rimmele.
Of the 3,500 kits sold so far, the breakthrough of this solar panel is being replicated.
The Nantes -based company plans to triple its turnover by the end of the year.
