What Solar Equipment do You Need for a Solar Electric System?
The Basics Four Pieces of Solar Energy Equipment
Solar pv panels are the backbone of any solar system installation. These can be mounted on any roof flat or slanted. The optimal orientation for your photo-voltaic panels is either south, southwest or southeast. These orientations will guarantee maximization of the solar power that you can generate on a daily basis. You don’t ever want to install solar panels in a north facing position as it will greatly limit the amount of solar energy you will be able to produce.
A power inverter is solar energy equipment that allows the energy produced from your solar panels to be used directly in your home or pumped back out to the power grid. Power inverters are essential in every green energy solar system installation.
A charge controller is a piece of solar energy equipment that is used for power outage battery back up or off grid solar applications. The charge controller regulates the flow of electricity produced by the pv panels that goes into the battery bank. These solar devices guarantee the batteries are topped up & charged without over charging the batteries. Over charging a battery bank could greatly harm the batteries and lessen the battery life.
Batteries or battery banks are solar equipment components used for off grid applications or grid tied power outage battery back up. Most notably in the news recently Tesla’s Powerwall is a Lithium-ion battery very much like the battery technology we use everyday in our smartphones & tablets. Which basically means you can drain the battery fast at almost 90% capacity with little or no repercussions. Most battery banks today comprise of lead acid batteries which allow a slower drain and only up to 50% of the battery capacity safely without damaging the battery. These batteries are comprised of acid flooded cells, absorbed glass mats or gel batteries. Adding a battery component to your solar strategy can be quite expensive but give you the reassurance if the power goes out you will always enjoy the benefit of your solar panels without any interruption in service.
