In addition to fiber and mobile, Movistar, from Telefónica, offers some curious businesses for its users. Among them, satellite internet connection —as if it were Starlink—, or solar panels that private customers can install at their home through Solar360, a Movistar solution in which Repsol also collaborates and in which they now offer a new service. Is about solar panels that you can install yourself in 20 minutes.
Movistar’s new idea together with Repsol through Solar360 is to offer customers to purchase Self-installable solar panels that will allow them to generate energy for low-power consumption. The panels, specifically, are installed on terraces and balconies, so it can even be perfect for blocks of flats or places where the client is renting, as it does not require any type of work.
At the moment, Solar360, from Movistar, offers two types of solar panels at different prices. On the one hand, a basic kit that includes two plates with a total power of 400W. It is available for 899 euros or 809.10 thanks to an introductory offer. For another, a more complete pack with plates that offer up to 800W of power. This is available for 1,399 euros (or 1,189.15 euros with the launch promotion).
This is how Movistar’s flexible solar panels work
The panels, we reiterate, can be placed on balconies and terraces. Once installed, it is only necessary to connect it to the power for it to start generating energy. According to Movistar, this system can save between 15 and 30% on electricity consumption, depending on the kit chosen. The panels also last the same as any other solar panel; with a useful life of 25 to 30 years or more.
The solar panel kits that Movistar sells, in addition, can accumulate. That is, the user can install another one in their home so that, instead of 800 W of power, they have 1200 W. In this case, they only have to purchase a Kit with four panels and another with two panels. All of them can be purchased through the website that the company has set up for this purpose.
Both the control of the plates and the consumption history can be checked through an app that Movistar and Repsol have developed for this.
