Solar panel installations

How does solar power work?The sun provides a constant power source that will never run out. Grid-tied systems harness the sun's rays and convert them into electricity to be used in your home.

As people become more aware of the need for renewable energy sources, solar is the most cost effective, easy to set up and eco-friendly with no pollution, no emissions and no carbon footprint.

So how does Solar Power Work?

You might be wondering how a solar power system will work in your home. The diagram on the right provides a simple overview

1. After the installation of the photovaltaic (PV) panels on your roof, these panels will collect the sun's radiance throughout the day light hours. Even on a cloudy day, they will still generate power - just at a lower rate than on sunny days!

2. As the panels collect the rays, they convert them into Direct Current (DC).

3. The DC is then passed through an inverter to convert it to Alerternating Current. This can then be sent into your home and used to power lights and appliances. 

4. In some cases, if you have excess power from your solar system, this is fed back into the public electricity grid and you will be given a credit by your power company.
