An off-grid solar system is a self contained power production and distribution unit. It generally consists of photovoltaic modules in the form or arrays, an inverter to convert direct current (DC) electricity from PV panels into alternating currents for use by household appliances
Solar pool heating is a great way to enjoy a warm, heated pool all year round. It has been proven that solar heating is more cost effective than conventional methods and it can provide up to 90% of your pool’s heat needs.
The world is on the brink of a renewable energy revolution. The cost of solar panels has fallen by 75% since 2008 and wind power costs have also plummeted in recent years. In addition, the cost of battery storage is also rapidly decreasing.
A solar charge controller is a device that manages electric current flow from the solar panels to the battery. The controller regulates voltage and ensures that your batteries are not overcharged or undercharged.
For many people, the idea of living solely on solar energy is an exciting prospect. The truth is that there are plenty of homes in America that produce more than enough electricity through their own solar panels to power everything they need.
A Solar Electric Photovoltaic (PV) System converts sunlight into electricity. It consists of an array of solar panels, mounting structure, one or more inverters for converting AC to DC and monitoring equipment. The system can be connected to the utility grid (grid-tie) or independent (off-grid), in which case batteries are used.
Solar panels are an excellent way to save money and energy. But there are a lot of questions that people have about them, such as “why are solar panels rectangular?” or “why do solar panels need batteries?”.
