GRID-CONNECTED SOLAR


HOW IT WORKS

 


The principles of solar power remain the same whether it is a domestic, commercial or industrial installation.
Photovoltaic (PV) cells in each of the panels convert the sunlight (photons) into electricity in the form of a DC voltage. A number of panels wired in series forms a PV array. The greater the number of panels, the higher the energy output of the array.

The solar array is wired to an inverter (pictured) which converts the DC input into the 240 v AC required for operation of appliances within the home/building. The inverter provides real-time energy readings in its display window including the power output, the daily total, and the cumulative total since installation. All our SMA inverters are setup for monitoring with free SMA software.

The 240 v AC supply is then utilised within the premises where required. If the usage requires more than that provided by the solar PV system, then it draws the remainder of its needs from the grid. If the solar system produces more energy than is being consumed, then the surplus power is exported to the grid. This surplus power is credited on your bill in accordance with your respective feed-in-tariff.
