How Residential Solar Panels Work
Every homeowner expends an incredible amount of energy just to keep homes running. With appliances, computers and lighting all needing vast amounts of power, a dilemma of sustainability arises, as well as rising energy bills. By choosing residential solar panels, it’s never been easier to achieve responsible energy usage.
With the ability to oversee and control every aspect of your energy usage, you can make your home more efficient and sustainable all at once. Whether near to us in Newton Abbot in Devon or elsewhere in the UK, residential solar panels can be the perfect way to utilise the potential of your home.
How Residential Solar Panels Work
The most common configuration is a grid system with residential solar panels. Installation is extremely straightforward, connecting to the grid and using it for both supply and backup. As well as reducing your need for power from the grid, you can benefit from significantly reduced yearly bills.
Homeowners can also sign up for a Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) if excess energy is generated. The power is fed back into the grid in exchange for a SEG payment, previously known as the ‘export tariff’. If the house needs more power than the residential solar panels can currently generate, the house will automatically pull power from the grid.
With several home storage battery solutions on the market, Callidus strive to provide only the best systems available. In the face of rising energy costs, many homeowners opt for battery storage as an alternative to exporting electricity and collecting the SEG payment.
As certified installers of Tesla, we can offer the Tesla Powerwall 2 to our customers. With the Tesla Powerwall 2, homeowners can effortlessly store excess electricity for later use.
The innovatively compact design paired with market leading performance will enable homeowners to enjoy the benefits of reliable, clean energy. Functioning as a fully integrated AC battery system, its rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack is the perfect energy storage solution to complement your residential solar panels.
When selecting a manufacturer, we can also recommend Victron. With over forty five years of experience in the industry, exceptional quality is inherent in every product. Their battery storage is incredibly user friendly and features a remote control function via Victron VRM. Monitor your solar system from anywhere at anytime.

The guys at Callidus were all fantastic. We had lots of questions before we had our solar power system installed, and all our many emails were answered very efficiently. The on site team did a really tidy job, and went through how we would use the system. We were very apprehensive about having an off grid system, and had different companies come to quote for the job. We went with Callidus because of the whole package that they offered, which includes their after sales help. We are very happy with the set up and it fulfils all that we asked for, very happy bunnies.
We live off grid in Cumbria and wanted to upgrade our electricity supply. We contacted Callidus and they were very happy to work with us. With excellent two way communication they designed the perfect system for us which is easily expandable if we should need it in the future. They were happy to design the system and supply us the parts for us to install ourselves. They programmed the system and were on the end of the phone to help with installation and getting the system up and running. Their after sales service is excellent. It has improved our quality of life no end.
Fantastic customer service! Such incredibly helpful staff. Can’t rate them highly enough. Highly recommend this company. So helpful and really fast service. I spoke with Chris and Dave at a time when other staff where out and they went above and beyond to help.
The entire team at Callidus, from the top to the bottom, are amazing. Knowledge, support, passion to place the customer and their needs at the centre of the process, throughout all phases. Clear explanations with realistic expectations; no over inflated figures to close out a deal. I am so satisfied with their approach that I have already completed an expansion of my system; NOT because it didn’t perform as promised, but in fact we are generating more than expected so have increased the battery storage!!
I have just had an off grid solar system fitted by Steve and his team. It has been a completely stress free experience. Everyone was so professional, helpful and obliging, kind and friendly. I would recommend Callidus to anyone.
