Having researched the cost against the annual savings and with Cyprus having an average of 324 sunshine days, it became an easy choice to make as the cost of installation would be quickly recouped in a few years, particularly with the high cost of electricity on Cyprus.
We had quotations from a number of solar companies, all varying in price.
What always impresses me when obtaining quotations is not only the price but the response and professionalism of the company. In this respect SUXEED SOLAR are far above their competitors in every respect and we had no hesitation in choosing them for the installation.
We were not disappointed as the paperwork needed for EAC was easily completed for us by SUXEED SOLAR and we just had to wait for a ‘go ahead’ from the EAC. Once the EAC approval was obtained, installation was quick, efficient and their engineers were very obliging and kept everything neat and tidy.
The installation was quickly approved by EAC and we started our solar monitoring online, which proves extremely useful.
Any initial questions were very quickly answered by their team and we would have no hesitation in recommending them, which we have already done.
In fact once we were able to upgrade the system after one year, following an increase in KWs by EAC, we chose SUXEED SOLAR again with the water solar panels also being changed complete with a much larger tank.
All now working perfectly and so pleased we made the right choice with SUXEED SOLAR.
Simply put, it was a pleasure doing business with you. What I found to be your differentiating strengths are the dedicated care to understand the customer needs and the outstanding follow up to that. You avoided the overuse of emails but bothered to visit my place on a number of occasions to discuss my needs and potential solutions on a face-to-face basis. Your whole attitude including your technical team towards the client (me) was very genuine and you have quickly gained my trust in your company.
Furthermore, your prices were very competitive when I checked the market, which reinforced my trust in your company.
Finally, you truly delivered on your promises, something that I would like to see more often in Cyprus.
Thanks ever so much. I will certainly recommend you to my friends (in fact, I have already done so).

What Are They?
Photovoltaic (PV) solar energy panels are glass panels you often see on top of household and industrial rooftops as well as in photovoltaic solar parks installed on the ground. PV panels are an example of a green energy technology producing clean electricity converted from direct or indirect sunlight without any moving parts.
PV panels produce DC electricity through their solar cells which convert energy from the sun into a flow of electrons by the photovoltaic effect. DC electricity can be converted to AC if required via an inverter.
ALEO PV panels are German branded and manufactured in Germany to the highest specifications.
- Their development of the MONO CRYSTALLINE PV panels offers a very useful 3% additional output.
- Their latest models of MONO CRYSTALLINE 295W and 305W offer a very crucial advantage where roof space is limited.
For example with just 10 PV panels (10 running meters) you can have a 3KW system whereas you would normally require 12 panels (12 running meters).

The ECO LINE series is ideal for Net Metering installations offered in various capacities starting from 250W in the POLYCRYSTALINE category.
A German branded PV panel, produced in Germany, to the highest specifications competitively priced.
- Their 270W POLY CRYSTALLINE PV panel can accomplish a 3KW installation with 11 panels.
- SONNESTROM offer 12 year manufacturer and 26 years linear performance warranties.
Electricity Authorities, via the national electricity grid network, supply homes with alternating current (AC) electricity; however, solar panels generate direct current (DC) electricity. The role of a solar inverter is to convert DC electricity to AC.
Solar inverters draw the maximum power from PV solar panels. This function is known as Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and is carried out at a rate of accuracy of over 99%. With the sunset, when the energy offered is no longer enough to feed the utility transmission grid, the inverter automatically cuts off the connection to the grid and stops operating.
Most Inverters have incorporated a sophisticated production monitoring system which offers data related to the PV system output. A monitoring system can also be programmed to alert in cases of PV system malfunction. To enable the monitoring system to operate an internet connection is required. Most good inverter manufacturers offer a free mobile phone application to the users.
Suxeed Solar carries out a regular and strict market research for the excellent choice of the most reliable inverters. We propose the following brands which are the best in the global market and proven to be ideal for the Cypriot weather conditions.
All our installations of solar panels are provided with mounting systems manufactured with high quality Aluminium which carry static certification for wind and weight pressures.
The use of stainless steel nuts and bolts ensures the longevity of the mounting systems.The fact that there are no welded joints, adds to the avoidance of rust for long periods.
SINGLE STACK MOUNTING SYSTEM-FLAT ROOFS
If space is adequate the mounting system is placed on the flat roof facing south at 27 degrees angle. This offers the PV panels the ideal angle facing the sun for maximum output (1,700 KWhs per year/per KW installed).
DOUBLE STACK MOUNTING SYSTEM-FLAT ROOFS
In situations that availability of roof space is limited; PV panels can be stacked in pairs (in portrait or landscape) onto a Double Stack Mounting System, therefore halving the required roof space. To remain within the maximum height requirement of 1.20 meters, the double mounting system needs to be fixed at an angle of 18 degrees thus reducing annual output by 3% to 1649 KWhs per year per KW installed.
TILED ROOF MOUNTING SYSTEMS
Rows of aluminium rails are placed onto a tiled roof which in its turn is secured with ‘S’ shape hooks onto the beams which are located below the tiles. The PV panels are ‘locked’ onto the aluminium rails. The angle of the PV panels is pre-determined by the existing angle of the tiled roof which can be around 15-18 degrees, thus slightly reducing output by 3% down to 1649 KWhs per year per installed KW.
