Things To Know when Installing Solar Panels

The price of energy is soaring all around the country and the escalation in electricity bills is also a matter of concern. In a situation like this, Solar power Hobart is offering conventional solutions within affordable means. The homeowners all around Australia are increasingly relying on solar panels to take advantage of greener and renewable energy sources. However, before installing solar panels, there are few things you need to know.

It goes without saying that, you need the help of Solar Experts for installing solar photovoltaic or PV systems on your roof. At the same time, it is also necessary to do some homework so that you know what you are getting.

How does the solar PV or photovoltaic system work?

Certain materials have the inherent quality to produce electricity when light falls on them. It is called the photovoltaic effect. The solar panels use this effect to convert the energy sourced from sunlight to DC or direct current.

Your home electrical circuits can use DC when an inverter unit changes it into AC or alternating current. Any excess energy can be stored into the battery storage system for later use. The solar panels work best when they are faced north and directly pointed at the sun. The optimal range must not be blocked by shading or any trees. The effectiveness of the solar panels will also depend on where you live and the weather conditions.

Types Of Solar Panels

• Mono-crystalline- These panels usually are typical black in colour with a reputation for being higher in efficiency. It is also said to have a better temperature tolerance. The performance of the solar panels primarily depends on the type of cell.

• Inter-digitated back contact solar cells (IBC) are a variant of standard solar cells. They are able to achieve higher efficiency by having all electrical contacts on the rear of the cell rather than on the front.
