As the effects of load-shedding becomes more evident, more South Africans are turning to solar power as a sustainable energy source. However, installing a solar system is not as simple as buying panels and sticking them on your roof. A properly installed solar system requires expert knowledge, training, and experience to ensure that it operates safely and efficiently. This is where SAPAC electricians comes in.

So, how does a solar system work?

A solar system is made up of several components, including solar panels, batteries, inverters, and charge controllers. Solar panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) panels, absorb sunlight and convert it into (DC) direct current electricity. This electricity is then sent to an inverter, which converts it into (AC) alternating current, electricity that can be used to power your home. Any excess electricity is stored in batteries for later use.

There are two main types of solar panels used for solar systems: monocrystalline and polycrystalline. Monocrystalline panels are more efficient and take up less space, but they are also more expensive. Polycrystalline panels are less efficient but are more affordable.

Batteries are an essential component of a solar system, as they store excess electricity for later use. The most common types of batteries used for solar systems are lithium-ion. Lithium-ion batteries is expensive but last longer and require less maintenance.

Types of inverters

Inverters are responsible for converting DC electricity from solar panels into AC electricity that can be used to power your home. There are two main types of inverters used for solar systems: string inverters and microinverters. String inverters are less expensive but less efficient, while microinverters are more expensive but more efficient.
