Top 3 Interesting Facts About Solar Panels

Solar panels

Solar panels convert sun energy to DC power. A solar inverter then converts the DC power into AC power which can be used to run home appliances in daily use. Depending on the type of system excess solar energy can also be fed into the electricity grid or stored in a battery system.

With the rapid growth of technology in the field of sun energy, many people have started installing solar power system.

Sukham solar has launched a new inverter technology by taking on grid and off grid together and that is hybrid. Hybrid includes on grid, off grid, ups, and inverter.

What is On grid?

On grid or grid-tie solar systems are by far the most commonly used in homes and businesses. It is a solar power generation system which is connected to the utility grid. The electricity is produced by the system is then routed to the grid from where it is used to run the various appliances for day to day use.

Disadvantages

During blackouts on grid sun energy systems could not generate electricity due to safety reasons.

How does an on grid solar power system works?

The arrays of solar PV modules absorb the sunlight on them and convert them into electricity. The current generated over here is DC. A solar inverter then converts the DC current to AC and then it powers the electric items.

Net meter

Net meter is a device that records the energy supplied to the grid and the energy consumed. At the end of each month, the outstanding is recorded and the consumer is provided with a bill.

Benefits of on grid solar-

Zero electricity bills
Easy maintenance
Passive income generation
What is Off grid?

Off grid is also known as stand-alone power system (SAPS). It generates electricity from solar panels and uses it to charge a solar battery via a charger controller. The electricity is then converted using an inverter so that it can power the home or business appliances. The electricity can be saved in a solar battery for future use when there is less sun exposure.
