Solar energy as a financial investment: 8 photovoltaic panels installed in Garéoult FLASH

  • 2023
  • Garéoult, France
  • Power output : 3 kWp
  • Panels : 8 photovoltaic panels

Valérie is a self-employed nurse. Mother of 3 grown-up children, she lives year-round with her husband in Garéoult, Var. Owners of a 160 m2 south-facing house for 25 years, they decided to install 8 DualSun FLASH solar panels in 2023 out of financial interest.

She explains.

“I liked the fact that DualSun was a French brand, which reassured me.

With rising electricity and fuel prices, the project to install solar panels became a priority. With her job, Valérie travels 150 km a day, spending €500 a month on petrol! The purchase of an electric car was already a first step.

The same goes for the electricity needs of their home. Valérie and her husband found that they were very high on 3 main items:

  • Air conditioning in summer / heating in winter
  • Swimming pool
  • Charging an electric car

Instead of taking out a new loan and covering their roof with solar panels, they used their savings to quickly install 8 photovoltaic solar panels. This leaves open the possibility of installing further solar panels at a later date, as the electrical connections are already in place.

The solar panels will therefore compensate for part of their electricity needs during the day, especially as Valérie’s schedule allows her to recharge her car with solar power! 

Today, Valérie is very satisfied, both with the solar panels and with the installation company, a partner in the DualSun network. They particularly appreciated the team’s availability for simulations and explanations: “They were very clear about everything”.
