• About Solar Energy

    Why Solar Energy

    1. Cut your electricity bills. Sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation, your electricity costs will be reduced.
    2. Low maintenance Once your system is installed, it doesn’t take much to ensure your solar panels are always working at their full potential.
    3. Sell electricity back to the grid. If your system is producing more electricity than you need, you can sell the surplus back to the grid through the Feed-in Tariff scheme.
    4. Cut your carbon footprint. Solar electricity is green renewable energy and doesn’t release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants. A typical home solar PV system could save nearly two tones of carbon per year.
    5. Earn a great return on your investment. Solar panels aren’t an expense – they’re one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds.

    How Solar Works

    1. Solar panels:capture sunlight during the day and convert it into Direct Current (DC)
    2. Inverter: receives that direct current from the panels and converts it into Alternate Current (AC — the electricity you use in your homes, offices and industeries). You use this electricity when you need it, and send any excess back to the grid or to a battery storage system.
    3. Battery storage: means any excess energy your system generates can be stored for use later even when the sun is not shining. When the battery is fully charged, you can send the excess energy back to the grid.
    4. Digital meter: measures your electricity use and can tell you more about your energy habits.
    5. Power grid: receives any excess energy you generate, and a feed-in tariff can allow you to get a credit on your bill for that excess electricity. You can also draw the extra electricity back from the grid if your system does not generate enough.
