How Solar works

When purchasing a solar system, it is important to understand how it works and the benefits it can provide. Having this knowledge will allow you to make the most of your solar power and maximise your savings. During your free consultation and site inspection, All Energy HQ’s experienced salesman gauge electricity usage. This enables us to recommend what size system is suitable for your individual needs.

Solar-powered photovoltaic (PV) panels convert the sun’s rays into electricity. Electrons vibrate within silicon cells using light photons from the sun.  This electricity can then be used to supply renewable energy to your home or business.

The renewable energy is harnessed and passed through an Inverter where it converts the DC current into AC. This is what is used to power your appliances.  In addition, the inverter processes the AC electricity through the grid. This notifies your energy supplier that you do not require their electricity because you have your own. If your system is generating excess electricity in the sunlight hours, your energy supplier will purchase that from you; thereby off-setting your evening usage.

No matter where you live, the chances are that you can successfully use solar panels for your electrical needs. We can complete a Solar Analysis of your property to determine the best location of the system. They are rugged and are very durable to extreme climate conditions and the latest panel models are efficient enough to work well without facing directly North. Some will even produce electricity under cloud cover. However, we always recommend facing North to achieve optimum results.
