This post delves into the key components and technologies essential for a home solar installation. Beyond the star of the show, the solar panels, there are a few unsung heroes working behind the scenes.
Also known as solar modules, these panels soak up photons from light, converting them into usable electricity through the photovoltaic effect. The solar inverter then transforms this electricity for home use, sending any surplus power back to the grid for others to utilise, all tracked by a smart meter.
During peak sunlight, your panels might generate more electricity than you can consume. Net metering programs credit homeowners for this surplus power, reducing monthly costs.
This device keeps tabs on surplus electricity production, offering real-time insights into your system’s performance.
For a detailed overview of your system’s day-to-day performance, integrating a monitoring device into your solar system is vital. This device allows you to remotely observe your system’s efficiency and home energy usage.
Energy retailers supply power to local areas via the grid. Some may compensate solar homeowners for providing surplus electricity to the grid. Connect with our team to explore your local energy retailer’s net metering plan.
The distributor plays a crucial role in transporting electricity from the grid to your doorstep. The grid, a vast network of power lines, ensures a continuous power supply to cities and homes. Being connected to the grid enables solar systems to provide power even during nighttime.
