Solar systems are made up of solar panels (modules), a mounting system, and a solar inverter with computerized controller. Solar panels produce DC electricity from sunlight. Then the inverter converts the generated electricity into AC, so that it can be used in the household. The computerized controller manages the solar system and ensures optimal performance. If you want battery backup system or an off-the-grid solar system, a battery is required.
You can use your computer or other device to check your solar system’s performance. For example, you can check how much electricity you generate at different times and decide what time is suitable for using your washing machine or other utilities.
The most common location for the installation of solar panels
Setting up a solar battery storage at the same time of installing a solar system can save you from worrying about the lack of usable energy during cloudy times, it can also lower the solar battery storage system costs during installation.
Since there are no moving parts, solar panels require very little maintenance. Once you have covered the installation cost of solar panels, there are not many costs associated with maintaining them.
Having said that, you should inspect them a few times per year for dirt or some other things that might have piled on top. It is important that the panels are clean and there is nothing blocking them from efficiently absorbing the sun.
