Here are some of the most common questions regarding Solar Companies Gold Coast solar panel system:
Q: What Is A Home Solar Panel System?
A: A Solar Companies Gold Coast solar panel system also called solar array for homes use photovoltaic (PV) cells to convert sunlight into electricity (direct current). This is then used to power your home and various electrical appliances. Generally installed on a rooftop, the necessary number of solar panels required to generate enough solar power depends upon the energy needed by your household.
Q: Do solar panels need to be placed on a rooftop to be effective?
A: Most home solar panel systems are ideally mounted south facing on a rooftop. However, it is also possible to install a very effective ground mounted system with adequate conditions as sufficient sun exposure, space, etc.
Q: How much space is required on my roof to have a solar PV installed?
A: With grid connected systems starting from around 1kW (kilowatt) rating, your solar PV would occupy approximately 8.2 square meters on your roof.
Q: How long will the installation take?
A: Normally, installation takes only 1 day on a pleasant weather and on very rare occasions may fall across onto a second. Of course, this is presuming every process has been performed until all panels have been set up.
Q: Are the solar PV panels fragile?
A: Solar PV panels from Solar Companies Gold Coast are certainly very robust and can withstand the normal stresses subjected by nature.
Q: How do solar cells work?
A: Solar also called photovoltaic (PV) cells are made of silicon, the most common element in the earth's crust. When sunlight strikes the cells
surface, electricity is produced some of which is absorbed into the silicon. This bumps electrons loose, causing energy to flow. This action called photovoltaic process produces DC (Direct Current) electricity, which is then converted by an inverter to AC (Alternating Current) electricity. This is the standard voltage used to power households and appliances in most countries.
Q: Are solar PV panels that efficient as companies project them to be?
A: Solar Companies Gold Coast ensures that you get maximum efficiency by using PV panels which operate on available daylight and not simply sunlight. Additionally, we conduct a thorough survey of your installation site to ensure its suitability (South facing). If your roof doesn't have any shading problems from trees, chimney stacks or adjacent building which can dramatically impact output and effectiveness, rest assured your PV panels will be highly efficient.
