The cost of your solar investment or inverter backup system will vary greatly depending on the load connected to your system, size of the system and your location.
Yes you can decide to disconnect from the grid and power your home with solar energy.
With no moving parts and at least a 25-year expected life-span, solar panels require very little maintenance. In fact, their design ensures that they remain relatively clean as long as they are exposed to rain or a quick rinse with a garden hose every few months.
Battery life span depends on their operating condition so it may be necessary to monitor the battery and ensure that they always have good operating conditions.
Solar Power is one of the cleanest renewable energy source which works by converting sun’s rays into power electricity. The component used in harvesting this Sun’s rays is called solar panel (PV panel or photovoltaic panel). A Direct Current (DC) is generated from the panel which is converted to an alternating current (AC) best for powering devices like your Television, Fridge, Washing machine e.t.c. through the use of an Inverter.
A solar Power Solution comprises of solar Panels, Controllers, Inverters, Battery and sometimes battery monitoring system and apps to monitor power solution remotely.How do I get electricity at night when using solar?
Through use of storage devices such as batteries which store the electricity generated during the day
It is true that the initial cost of solar energy for home and businesses can be high just like the initial generation of all other sources of energy to the National and state grid but when cost is spread over the life time of use, solar can then be very cost-saving. An A grade solar energy installation is expected to last up to 25 years. The only maintenance that would be required is having to replace the batteries every few years
It depends on the way you look at cost saving. For short term projections, it may look as if you are not saving much due to the initial cost but it is well known that when the cost of powering your appliance with petrol, cost of replacement/maintenance of generator parts, cost of the generator and electricity bills are factored in over a period of time, the cost of solar becomes cheaper overtime.
For a 12V, 200Ah battery, the total energy derived would be 2400Wh. Assuming we need the battery to charge completely in 5 hours, We would need 480 watts of solar array which practically means two 250W panels should be sufficient to charge a 12V 200Ah solar battery full in 5 hours.
The best way to determine what a three bed room flat or any building would be to speak with one of our representatives as we would need information on your electrical appliances. These information include:
Dust and debris will overtime accumulate on the solar panels which may not seriously have impact in the output of the solar Power Output. It will require that you clean when output on system drops noticeably. Solar panels generally requires minimal maintenance and usually we recommend maintenance every 18 months-24 months.
