About Photovoltaic Solar power

 

About Photovoltaic Solar power

 

Solar power is the harnessing of the sun’s energy and converting it into usable energy either through the use of direct sunlight known as Photovoltaics.

There are three main components to a Photovoltaic solar energy system

 

SOLAR PANELS

The Solar panels work with photovoltaic cells which convert direct sunlight into DC electricity, this electricity is then sent to the inverter.

INVERTER

The inverter is a critical part of your solar system and you will need to keep in mind what your future goals are when it comes to your selection, there are three types of inverters available Grid-tied, Hybrid, and Off-grid each type has its pro’s and con’s and is designed for a specific use. The solar experts will be happy to explain the in’s and out’s of each inverter and help you select the inverter that is right for your system. Remember the inverter is the engine of the solar system and you want the best inverter for the job.

BATTERIES / STORAGE

The batteries are only installed in Hybrid or Off-grid systems not in grid-tie solar systems. When you are talking batteries it is again crucial to take into account what your specific needs are and what loads you intend running on the system. Lithium-ion batteries are the best batteries on the market

Savings savings savings, save money, save the earth you win all the way

A short return on investment three to four years and high future earnings potential with an expected lifetime of twenty-five or more years, a five KW solar system can potentially earn more than One million four hundred thousand rands.

Very low maintenance costs the solar panels need to be washed every six months, the inverter will need a few software upgrades and the lithium-ion batteries are maintenance-free. That’s it.

Guaranteed performance of the solar panels for twenty-five years that’s a better warranty then your motor vehicle has.

Go green save the earth, do the right thing this is about the future of all of us.

Energy Control

Grid-tied Solar system upgradable in the future to Off-grid

Energy Control are excellent clients, they are electrical contractors and as such knew exactly what they needed but still decided to use a professional company for the supply and purchase of their solar-powered system.

The Solar Experts installed 27 solar panels on raised stand, and an 8kw Sunsynk inverter which can be used in grid-tied, hybrid or off-grid mode and in our opinion is the best inverter currently on the South African Market.

OFF-GRID SOLAR SYSTEM

Of Course Media

Ofcourse Media were great clients to work with they had many questions about solar power and how effective a Solar system would be for them, after three meetings the solar experts had answered all their questions and were chosen above the other companies. In the words of the owner, he appreciated the amount of time we took to make sure he understood everything about the system and felt he could trust us to be there for him if there were any problems with the system.

The Solar experts installed 14 solar panels a Mecer off-grid inverter and 4.8kwh of Pylontech batteries, with complete rewiring the DB board to a sub DB so that the system would function as an off-grid system.

HYBRID SOLAR SYSTEM

Justine and Julian were wonderful clients to work with, Justine contacted us looking for a solar power solution to high electricity costs and backup for load shedding in their home office.

The solar Experts installed and registered with the COCT a Hybrid solar power system 8 Solar panels a Goodwe hybrid inverter and a Pylontech 2,4kwh lithium-ion battery for backup to the office computers and lights during power outages.

FAQ’s

FAQ’s

What type of Solar system do I need?

This depends on what your specific needs are, for most residential homes we would recommend a Hybrid Solar system, this type of system uses solar power during the day and has a limited battery supply for limited loads to be used at night or during load-shedding. We recommend a professional design based on your needs and usesPanelsas provided by The Solar Experts.

What size solar system do I need

This answer varies according to the needs of each person, but generally, most homes would manage with a 3 to 5 KWh system which is 12 panels, a 5 kW inverter, and sufficient batteries to meet the requirements.

Can I upgrade my Solar system

Yes you can10-year however5-year careful attention needs to be paid to the type of inverter you choose, make sure you have allowed for the future upgrades you would like to achieve otherwise you will need to change the inverter and this can be costly. Please contact The Solar Experts for any advice.

How much does a Solar System cost

Again this varies from each client but for your average residential home a solar system with batteries for the backup will cost in the region of R150000-00

The Solar Experts have a 2-year warranty on all workmanship.

How long will it take to install my solar system?

From confirmation of the project it takes approximately 10 working days to order and receive the materials on-site, installation takes approximately 3 working days depending on the conditions on the site.

Why do I need to pay a 70% deposit?
