WHAT IS SOLAR ENERGY?

Energy stored in light produced by the sun is referred to as solar energy. The sun acts as a huge reactor responsible for the constant release of heat and light, which is then captured into this energy via solar panels before the solar power is converted to electricity for everyday use. Solar energy is widely regarded as one of the purest forms of electricity in circulation nowadays as it leaves no traces of carbon in addition to the fact that its operation is about solely relying on naturally occurring and renewable sources of power.

HOW DO SOLAR PANELS WORK?

solar powerSolar panels operate via the conversion of solar power from DC or direct current power into AC or alternating current power that is utilised for our everyday needs. This process begins when the sun releases light and heat with the light captured via solar panels, which make use of silicon crystals or more efficient or recently cheaper substitutes for the conversion of that light into DC power.

The DC power is passed through the inverter before it turns to the AC power that you can make use of. A fraction of the energy that is surplus to the current amount you are using is stored in the battery for later use in the night to ensure you don’t lack electricity. At Best Solar Panels Sydney, we are concerned with using the best in quality components to make sure that you have solar panels that work more efficiently and last longer.

WHAT IS A PHOTOVOLTAIC ARRAY?

A series of connected photovoltaic cells laid out flat and employed to make larger more effective solar panels is referred to as a photovoltaic array. Photovoltaic is a word that is best used to talk about a substance that can be employed to convert light into DC current and they are used for the light-capturing surfaces that solar panels possess. The area a photovoltaic array can cover is directly proportional to the amount of sunlight it is able to convert into electricity during the day.

By deciding to embrace solar, you not only save money but will also be entitled to feed-in tariffs from surplus electricity produced by your solar panels that can be sold to the local grid.
