WHY TO CHOOSE SOLAR ?
ADVANTAGES OF USING SOLAR POWER AS AN ENERGY SOURCE
There is more solar power that hits the earth every day than the current population can use in a year. Let’s keep working to harness this great power and put it to good use. With efficiencies evolving, pricing being reduced every day, and new technologies being experimented with, it will be interesting to see where we are in the solar industry in the next couple of years
Solar power is pollution-free and causes no greenhouse gases to be emitted after installation
Reduced dependence on foreign oil and fossil fuels
Virtually no maintenance as solar panels last over 30 years
Return on Investment
Savings From day one unlike paying for utility bills
Renewable clean power that is available every day of the year, even cloudy days produce some power
Safer than traditional electric current
Sell surplus electricity
Use batteries to store extra power for use at night or can be sold back to the power company if the grid inner tied.
Components of Solar Power Plant.
Photovoltaic Module : Panel
Photovoltaic rays from sun excites electrons in solar panel cells and produce Direct Current(DC).This modules are usually mounted on the roof.
Brain of PV system : Inverter
The inverter converts the direct current generated into alternating current that can be used in the household.It also optimises the yield, controls energy flows and checks the function of the PV system
Intelligent Smart Meter
A smart meter is an intelligent electricity meter. Fitting the Smart Meter allows you to optimise energy management and thus self-consumption
Energy storage : Battery
A PV system can be expanded with a battery. In a storage system such as this, surplus energy is stored temporarily and can be used when needed (e.g. at night).
