When designing the system, Contigo Energía will take your personal situation into consideration and will customize a system to your need and wallet.
You can install solar panels on most types of roof. It is worthwhile considering that a solar system will give you green electricity for at least 30 years. If you have an old roof that risks not lasting, it is better to replace the roof first.

Our solar panels are very durable and able to withstand the toughest weather conditions. The life span of a system is at least 25 years.
The amount of electricity you get from the system depends on a number of factors and therefore a simple answer can rarely be given. Usually the amount of electricity, is the number of kWh, is produced per installed kW. In Spain, the solar radiation is very high, usually ranging from 1400-1800 kWh / installed kW, mainly depending on the annual solar radiation and the direction and inclination of the panels. Other factors affecting production are shading, temperature, soiling etc.
How much you save depends on your housing situation and the size of the solar system. In most cases, your savings enable a payback within 6 to 10 years. Don´t forget that you will keep your system for around 25 years.
No, solar panels don´t need much maintenance. They get cleaned when it rains. There´s usually no need to clean yourself. Other components, such as the inverter, might fail between 5 and 10 years and this will be covered by the warranty.
Should something not work properly, all products have long warranty periods. The product warranties on the various parts are minimum of 10 years.
Furthermore, Contigo Energía provides a 5 year workmanship warranty (cover any costs associated with faulty workmanship provided the panels are only used for their intended purpose) and a 5 year parts warranty (covering all products supplied and installed against mechanical and electrical defects arising from either faulty parts or workmanship. Any costs associated with replacement of these components will be covered.
Finally, our offer includes a 5 year performance guarantee that compensates the customer in case the solar PV system does not deliver at least 80% of the average estimated energy generation calculated in the final quotation. It ensures that nothing is disregarded in other guarantees.
