With a surge in electricity prices currently underway (and not looking likely to stop), the ever growing need to power all todays modern electrical gadgets and devices, plus the desire to save the planet’s natural resources and go green, Solar Power is one of the cleanest and one of the cheapest ways to generate most, if not all, of your electricity needs.
How does Solar PV work?
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems generate high voltage DC power which is then fed through an inverter to transform it into grid-compatible 230V AC power; this in turn feeds into your distribution board.
During the day solar power feeds any power requirements of the building with any shortfall being draw in from the national grid.
If the PV system is producing more power then the building is using then the excess electricity generated is fed back into the grid. At night when there is no solar power being produced, electricity is drawn from the grid as standard.
