Solar Power means Solar Savings at Solar Man. We are Australia’s solar source, helping property owners to save by going green. Solar energy is energy generated from the sun. With solar technology the power harnessed from the sun is converted into solar power. At Solar Man, we fit property owners with the best solar systems and plans.
Solar Power is a renewable energy source. By installing solar panels on your roof, the solar panels collect and convert the sun’s UV rays into usable energy. The process is one that benefits both the environment and lowers your utility bill.
Solar panels are used to turn the sun’s energy into useful energy for home and business use. The two main types of solar panels are solar thermal and photovoltaic, also referred to as PV.
Solar thermal panels are used to harness the sun’s energy to heat water and space in a property. The construction of the PV panels includes a photovoltaic effect that converts the energy directly into electricity. This electricity is then used to supplement or replace the establishment’s usual supply.
PV panels are comprised of semiconducting material – usually silicon based. The material is positioned between two electrical contacts. This allows the panels to generate optimal electricity. An anti-reflective substance also coats the semiconductor. With the construction of the panels, they must spend their time in direct sunlight. South facing roofs with a slop are the ideal place to mount a solar panel.
The semiconductor material is protected by a sheet of glass. When the sun’s UV rays hit the panel and are absorbed, electrons knock loose from some of the atoms that make up the semiconductor. On one side, the semiconductor is positively charged. On the other side, it is negatively charged. This allows all the loose electrons to travel in the same direction, creating a current. The electrical current is captured by the contacts in an electrical circuit.
The direct current created by the PV panels is changed into an alternating current using an inverter. Once changed, the current then travels to the establishment’s fuse box from the inverter, and from there can be used for appliances.
Property owners can have PV systems installed to include a dedicated metering box. The advantage is that property owners are aware of the amount of electricity being generated by the panels.
