Frequently asked questions
What equipment is needed for solar energy / for a solar system?
There are four major components of a solar energy system. All of these components are a critical part of the system, and it will not work in their absence. The four major components are highlighted below:
The first component of the system is the actual solar modules. These modules include the solar cells that have the ability to convert the energy from the sun into DC power. The number of solar cells within the module can vary according to your needs.
The second component is the mounting structure. This mounting structure is extremely important because it allows you to install the modules on your roof. A typical mounting structure is a very complex part of a PV system. Most of the time it is an individually-calculated system that deals with wind loads, snow loads and different roof surfaces.
Another important component of the solar energy system is the DC/AC cabling. These cables help you to transport the DC power to the inverter and the transformed AC power to the grid. While choosing a cable, you need to be sure that the energy loss is kept to a bare minimum. The selection of your DC cables is very important as solar or PV cable is a special, double insulated cable, ensuring the DC power from the panels gets safely to your inverter. As well as the battery cable you will need, this must be calculated according to your volts and amps.
The final component of the system is the actual inverter. This inverter helps you in converting DC into AC so that you can use it. In the absence of an inverter, you may not be able to convert or use the electricity that is generated from solar power.
