Solar power is a clean, renewable energy source that has become popular in domestic applications, heating water and helping to generate power. The solar panels one sees on the roofs of houses are called photovoltaic cells, and are typically made up of a conductive material such as silicon. This absorbs the light energy of the sun and harnesses it, allowing it to be drawn as a current. This current can be in turn be channelled and collected to be utilised to generate an electrical current.
Solar systems generally generate DC current, so an inverter is required to convert this into 240V AC current, suitable for use by your appliances and electrical equipment. This can then power your home, or be fed and sold into the main electricity grid. Electricians who specialise in the installation of solar power units should be consulted for advice on the most suitable system for your home or premises.
