Solar panels and solar power

for homes and businesses in Melbourne, Geelong and throughout Victoria

Solar panels are the first part of the solar power design process. It starts with light from the sun being absorbed by solar panels, which creates an electric current that will then be converted and able to be used as electricity or stored using a solar battery. Based in Spotswood Melbourne but also servicing Geelong we are solar panel installation experts servicing residential, commercial and industrial clients in Melbourne, Geelong, Victoria and other states of Australia.

Solar energy is a renewable resource, making solar panels an eco-friendly way to generate power.

Solar panels are also low maintenance, and once installed, can provide power for 30+ years.

If you’re considering solar power for your home or business, contact our team of experts for more information on solar panels and solar power systems. We can help you find the right solution for your needs and budget.

How solar panels work

Solar panels are devices that convert sunlight into electricity. They are made up of a series of solar cells, which are connected together. When the sun hits the solar cells, they generate an electric field. This field causes electrons to flow from one side of the cell to the other. The electrons flow through a circuit, creating an electric current. The current is then sent to an inverter, which converts it into usable AC power.

Solar panel efficiency

Solar panel efficiency is a measure of how well a solar panel can convert sunlight into electricity. The higher the efficiency, the more electricity the panel produces. Solar panel efficiency is affected by many factors, including the type of solar cell, the size of the solar panel, the amount of sunlight the panel receives and quality workmanship during the solar panel installation. In general, monocrystalline silicon solar cells have the highest efficiencies, followed by polycrystalline silicon solar cells. Solar panels made with amorphous silicon solar cells have the lowest efficiencies. Solar panel efficiency is also affected by temperature. As the temperature of a solar panel increases, its efficiency decreases. This is why solar panels are often mounted on roofs or in other locations where they can receive cooling airflow, making solar perfect for our climate.

Solar panel installation

A solar power system consists of several components, the most important of which are solar panels. Solar panels are typically installed on the roof of a home or business, and they work by converting sunlight into electrical energy. The electrical energy produced by the solar panels is then used to power lights, appliances, and other devices in the home or business. In order for a solar power system to work effectively, it must be properly installed by a qualified professional.
