How Does A Solar Power System Actually Work?
The solar panels capture energy from the sun and channel it to an inverter, where it’s converted to electricity to power your home.
1. The sun’s light is absorbed by the solar panel.
2. The silicon and conductors in the panel convert the light into Direct Current (DC) electricity, which then flows into the inverter.
3. The inverter converts the DC into Alternate Current (AC) electricity, which.
4. That electricity is then sent into your home to power your lights and appliances.
5. Any additional electricity that’s not used by your home is fed back into the grid.
6. Electricity is drawn from the grid when you need more power than your solar energy system can produce.
Benefits Of Solar Power
Save Money With Solar
Solar power can reduce your home's electricity bill significantly or even eliminate it altogether.
Offset Your Energy Cost
Any additional electricity that’s not used in your home is fed back into the grid and appears as a credit on your bill.
Help prevent the burning of dirty fossil fuels by harnessing the sun's free energy.
3 Types Of Solar Power Systems
There are three primary types of solar power system for anyone getting into solar to consider. The first are grid-tied systems that contribute to, or use energy from, the utility grid. The second are off-grid systems that are designed to provide a more self-reliant option and third are standalone solar system or off grid solar systems that has no connection to the Grid, and in place of the Electricity Grid supplying your power at night and on very cloudy days you use a bank of batteries to draw power when there is little or no power being generated from your solar panels. This system is generally used by people who have been quoted a very high price to connect to the grid generally because they are in remote locations.
Grid-Tied Solar Power Systems
Grid-tied solar power systems generate electricity for your home or business and route the excess power into the electric utility grid for compensation from the utility company.
Cabera Solar stocks all the components and we assemble complete grid-tied solar packages, so that we can offer them to you at best prices.
We also design and assemble 3kW, 5kW, 6kW, 10kW & up to 100kW solar system packages with best solar panels and latest technology inverters with Wi-Fi trackable options. So you can get best solar power system for what you pay.
Hybrid Solar System
A hybrid system is a grid connects system with back up batteries and is useful in two ways. First and foremost is that if you are putting most of the solar power you make back into the grid during the day as you are at work or school and you are on the new 8 cents feed in tariff its not a bad idea rather than selling power to the grid you may as well charge your batteries with it and then you can use your stored power at night and let the solar recharge your batteries the next day.
Standalone Solar (Off-Grid)
Stand alone or off grid solar systems have become a lot more affordable in the last year or two.
Off-Grid or stand-alone solar systems are a solar system that has no connection to the Grid, and in place of the Electricity Grid supplying your power at night and on very cloudy days you use a bank of batteries to draw power when there is little or no power being generated from your solar panels.
This system is generally used by people who have been quoted a very high price to connect to the grid generally because they are in remote locations.
