Optimise Your PV System
The Solar PV+ unit from Matt:e is an over-voltage protection device. It can increase your solar PV yield by up to 15% in areas of high nominal mains voltage.
Solar PV inverters generate at a higher AC output voltage than the nominal grid supply. The increase is typically 4-6% of the nominal voltage available. If at times of peak generation the nominal mains voltage is above 243Vac, the PV inverter will shut down as part of its over-voltage protection settings, resulting in reduced yield and lost generation.
A Matt:e PV Plus unit can increase solar PV output generation by up to 15% as it keeps your system generating for longer periods by reducing the supply to the Solar PV inverter. The device can be fitted to both new and existing solar PV systems. Running the solar PV inverter within its input DC voltage window also reduces heat build-up and stress and helps to prolong the working life of the inverter. The typical return on investment is within 2 years.
Am I Suitable for PV Plus?
If you have a PV system installed and your incoming mains voltage is consistently above 243Vac, then yes, you could benefit notably from a PV+, increasing yield and enhancing FIT earnings.

What Are The Benefits?
If the incoming mains voltage is consistently above the minimum threshold, you can benefit from up to 20% increased yield. If you are currently receiving a high rate FIT of 50p p/kWh, and your system generates 3000kWh per year, then a 15% uplift would result in 450kWh of increased production, translating to £225 per year in additional FIT revenues. You will also benefit from further reductions in your energy bills and increase export payments. It is not unusual to see your investment pay for itself in as little as 18 months.
Check incoming mains voltage
There are various devices available that will enable you to measure incoming mains voltage. Alternatively, if your existing inverter has built-in monitoring then you should be able to view the incoming voltage on the online portal as this data should be recorded. If you are unable to check the voltage using either of the suggested methods, we can conduct a free survey of your property and perform the check for you.
Make contact with Eco7
Complete the contact form below and we will contact you to discuss a convenient time to either conduct a survey or install the device.
If no survey is required, we will generate an order and you will be asked to make a 50% deposit payment. If a survey is required and our surveyor ascertains that your property is suitable, you can place your order with our surveyor who will provide details of how to make the deposit payment.
If you require time to make a decision this is fine. We do not employ commissioned sales staff and we operate a strictly no-pressure sales policy.
Once we have received the deposit payment, we will arrange a mutually convenient time to install the PV+. The installation is non-intrusive and will take no more than 2 hours to complete.
Once the PV+ has been installed and fully commissioned, you will be asked to make the balance payment.
Watch your PV production and FIT earnings soar.
