How does solar power work?

What are the components of a Solar System?

There are 3 main components to a PV (Solar system) which include;

1) Solar panels capture the sun’s UV rays via electrical cells. When light shines on the cell panels they create an electric field across the layers causing electricity to flow.

2) Charge Controllers control the amount of charge that is passed through to the inverter.

3) Inverters control the direct current of the solar system and is changed to an alternating current used for electrical appliances.

Solar Power Information

Solar energy is the cleanest and greenest renewable energy source.

With advances in technology it’s now practical and affordable to turn any roof space into a renewable energy power generator.

Our high quality solar panels use photovoltaic (PV) cells to efficiently turn sunlight into electricity. This power is directed via an inverter into your building for your use. For example, when the sun is beating down your solar electricity system can power your air conditioning. If you are away any unused power you generate is exported back into the electricity grid. You receive a credit for the electricity you generate and export.

Energy Makeovers installs grid connected solar power. This means that solar power is blended seamlessly with your current power supply. So when the sun goes down or hides behind clouds your inverter switches to drawing power from the grid. When the sun is out you will enjoy free renewable electricity and when the sun isn’t shining you won’t be left in the dark.

We also offer solar battery storage freeing your property from the demands of grid-energy.

When you install solar power you’ll shrink your electricity bill, reduce your greenhouse gas emissions and help secure our planet’s energy future. Remember every solar panel installed reduces your use of fossil fuels year after year.
