Solar power is relatively simple, but it can be a challenge at first. If you're thinking about buying solar panels but don't know where to start, DreamSolar is ready to help you.
Solar panels work simply - they collect sunlight and turn it into usable electricity with the help of inverters. Solar inverters are essential equipment for going solar. There are three main types of inverters used for solar: string inverters, micro-inverters and optimizers. Choosing the right one can make a difference in terms of saving you money.
Solar panels are fixed to the roof or to the ground with racking and mounting systems.
With performance monitoring systems you can get detailed information about the performance of your solar system.
Solar systems can be grid-tied or off-grid. One more option is a grid-tied system with backup power. The difference between them lies in where the generated power is stored.
Grid-tied solar systems are considerably cheaper and very popular among the homeowners who don’t want to pay money to the utility every month. With them the generated power is sent into the utility grid. In return, you receive energy from the grid which you can use any time.
Off-grid systems have no access to the utility grid, so you’ll need to add a battery bank to such a system to store generated energy for later use. Batteries are the most expensive part of a solar system, though they offer certain benefits. They are maintenance free and they store the produced energy for later use, for example during a power outage.
Grid-tied systems with battery backup are connected to the grid, but also include batteries. This way you can protect yourself from outages, which gives you extra peace of mind.
