A grid connected to solar power system functions as a mini power station for your home. A typical solar panel system will have these components in the following
Solar panels are placed on the roof and they convert sunlight into DC electricity. Panels come in all shapes and sizes. Oz solar only uses Tier 1 panels.
A grid connected inverter transforms DC electricity into regular 240 Volt power.
A smart meter records the amount of electricity generated by solar panels and at the same time keeps track of how much energy is exported back to the grid (If at all).
They help to securely and firmly attach solar panels on the roof.
Batteries is another component that’s sometimes used depending on requirement. It’s used to store surplus electricity for use at night, leading to greater cost savings and even less reliance on the grid. A solar battery lets you store electricity generated by your solar system and use it later. Click here for more information on Batteries.
