Solar Electricity- Solar Voltaics SV
These specially designed panels make use of the sun’s energy, they allow you to power your home and thus alleviate (or reduce) your reliance on grid power for your electricity needs.
The solar power system is made up of solar panels, inverter, switchboard, meter, optional batteries and a mains grid. The sun’s light on the panels create electrical energy.
This energy is then fed in to the inverter and converted to AC energy. This AC power is then used to power your home so you can use it for all your regular electricity needs. Any additional electricity that your solar system creates and you don’t use can be fed back into the Main Grid.
Many energy providers offer “credits” or have “buy back” systems in place for the surplus energy that you send to the Main Grid.
Thermal Solar SV whereby the latent heat from the solar panels can also heat water or space heating while generating the electricity requirement for the home.
