How Solar Power Systems WorkSolar power panels generate electricity from sunlight.
The roof mounted solar panels are made up of many photovoltaic (PV) cells. These cells collect the sun’s light and convert the energy into DC current. This is fed through an inverter and converted to 240V AC electricity to power your home. The amount of electricity you can produce depends on the number and efficiency of the panels, the size of the inverter and the amount of sunlight in your location.
Your home remains connected to the power grid so when you generate more electricity than you need you can feed it into the grid or purchase more from the grid when you are not producing enough to meet your requirements.
As part of the installation you may need to upgrade your meter.
If you’re keen to reduce your energy use with solar power there are a few things worth considering.
Your Daily Power Usage Patterns
Solar power panels need the sun’s light so they only generate electricity during the day, so it’s most economical to install a system that can supply your expected daytime electricity usage.
Of course any electricity you don’t use isn’t wasted - you’ll be able to sell it back to the grid at a feed in tariff agreed with your electricity provider. These tariffs vary by energy retailer
Our smallest solar power system needs just 10 sqm of roof space to generate around 30% of the average Australian household’s energy use. The more power you would like to generate the bigger the roof space you will need.
In Australia, solar power systems are most efficient when installed on a North facing roof. The further from North your roof faces, the more the efficiency of the system is reduced.
Shading from objects such as buildings, trees, antennas or power lines will reduce the effectiveness of your solar panels.
Your Expert at Solahart Adelaide South will check your home and energy usage and recommend the best system for you.
