How solar works

THE SOLAR PANELS

The most recognisable part of a solar system. Solar panels come in various materials and degrees of efficiency. The best solar panel for you will depend on your individual situation and is determined by factors such as altitude,geographic location and the pitch of your home. What does matter is that whichever option is best for you, you use a high quality panel from a quality tier one manufacturer. The most recognisable part of a solar system.

THE INVERTER

The inverter is what converts your electricity from DC voltage to AC voltage which can be used in the household.

THE SWITCH BOARD AND ELECTRICITY METER

The switch board figures out how much electricity needs to feed into the home and then sends the surplus to the grid. The electricity meter measures how much electricity is supplied to the grid.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS
  • Solar energy is FREE from the sun
  • Solar power is renewable and
  • Environmentally friendly
  • No burning fossil fuels
  • Carbon FREE
  • SAVE tonnes of greenhouse gases
  • You are helping Australia to achieve its 20% Renewable Energy Target (RET) by 2020 if you switch to solar
  • Lower energy costs
  • More predictable energy budgeting

1) Solar PV modules supplying DC power.

2) Grid connect solar inverter transforms DC electricity into useable AC electricity

3) AC power goes through the switch board for use in your house.

4) The meter records how much unused energy is sent to the grid.

5) Surplus energy flows into the mains grid and you get paid by your electricity company for each kw/h exported.

MONOCRYSTALLINE

High performance in a laboratory testing environment due to the lighting angle.

MONO panels will perform better in perfect weather conditions, with optimum output when the sun is at its peak

MULTICRYSTALLINE

Improved performance in the morning and afternoon, increasing overall daily output.

MULTI panels power output is more gradual and will produce higher output during lower light times at the beginning and end of the day. MULTI anels also have superior performance during cloudy periods.

A MONOCRYSTALLINE solar cell is a dark black colour. MULTICRYSTALLINE is generally light or dark blue colour, and some patches are lighter than others. The difference in appearance is a result of the different manufacturing processes to convert the raw material silicon into a solar cell.

Using panels made by Tier 1 AND REPUTABLE Tier 2 manufacturers gives you the confidence that you are purchasing high quality panels using A Grade cells and ensures a balance between affordability and reliability without sacrificing your systems overall output
