Solar 101: How Solar Really Works

By [email protected] | December 23, 2020

Solar photovoltaic systems, often called solar PV for short, are made up of a number of components, the biggest and most important being the solar panels, solar inverters, mounting platforms and cabling infrastructure.

How many solar panels do I need to power my home?

By [email protected] | January 2, 2021

Your energy usage in kilowatt-hours (kWh) dictates the size of your system. Panels have a broad range of wattages (270W-495W is common as of late 2020), and other factors like local sun exposure, mount orientation and the presence of a battery bank also play a part. We sometimes get asked: “How many solar panels do

Battery Storage. For when the sun doesnt shine.

By [email protected] | December 22, 2020

A battery stores electrical energy in a reversible chemical reaction. The renewable energy (RE) source (PV, wind, or hydro) produces the energy, and the battery stores it for times of low or no RE production. Most batteries employed in renewable energy systems use the same electro-chemical reactions as the lead-acid battery in your car. But,

What is a solar hybrid inverter?

By [email protected] | December 3, 2020

As the name suggests the solar hybrid inverter is a hybrid between the traditional on-grid inverter and off-gird inverters. During normal operation the hybrid inverter synchronizes with your mains utility power and supplements your power usage using the solar power during the day. In addition to this cost saving during daylight hours, batteries are used
