How does solar work?

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.


Benefits of Solar Power

Ecologically Friendly

Solar Energy is ecologically friendly, renewable and better for our health. Considered one of the most “green” electricity sources, solar is one of the best solutions for problems such as global warming and catastrophic climate change. There is no fear of it running out or harming the environment. With cleaner air and water, we will live longer and healthier lives!

Low Maintenance

Solar panels have no moving parts and are very simple to use. After being set up properly, they do not need to be maintained and will continue working for many years. In fact, most solar panel manufacturers have 25-year production warranties on their panels.

Decreased Electrical Bill

By switching to solar energy, you will save money and or potentially eliminate your electrical bills every quarter. Even if electricity bills continue rising in the future you will have the peace of mind knowing that your energy source is based on solar power.
