The Solar Panels Job
Solar panels work by converting sunlight into electricity. This is done through the use of photovoltaic cells, which are typically made from silicon. When the sun shines on the solar panel, the photovoltaic cells absorb the sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. Depending on the quality of your panel will determine the output.
The Inverters Job
The solar inverter then converts this DC electricity into alternating current (AC) power, which can be used by your home appliances. Any excess electricity generated by the solar panels but not used by your appliances is sent back to the electricity grid or used to charge a solar battery.
The Solar Racking's Job
A solar racking system, or solar panel mount, is used to support a solar array on any surface, usually on a roof or directly on the ground. The kind of racking system you’ll need depends on a few key factors. Rooftop mounts are usually less expensive because they can use the existing roof’s structural support. However, ground-mounted systems are easier to access and maintain, and don’t include the safety concerns that come with working on a roof. and mainly used for rural of commercial systems where space can be an issue.
The Solar battery's Job
A solar battery works by storing the excess electricity generated from a household’s solar system during the day. The surplus of energy that is stored by the battery can then be used later at night during peak usage periods when electricity rates tend to be more expensive. A household battery system stores electrical energy, often from a renewable energy source such as rooftop solar, but can also be charged with electricity from the grid. The energy is stored in the battery and can then be used later on to power appliances and other electrical systems in the home.
The Energy Retailers Job
It is always wise practice to align your home with an Energy retailer that will give you a good FIT (Feed in Tariff) for your excess energy, as that helps to pay for your nighttime usage. With our aftersales support program, we will make sure that you are getting a good buy in rate, FIT and supply charge that is suitable for your households’ usage.
