There are many questions you need to resolve before carrying out a solar panel installation in your home. You need to understand the electrical requirement of your home and have an idea of where you can purchase the panels. There are many solar companies that you can contact to do this or you can purchase the items required from online stores.
You can check for solar deals Adelaide to see whether there are better financing options. You need to understand where to install the solar panels. Generally, they are mounted on rooftops and on the top of buildings. They can be installed on the ground or in a stand-alone facility that is dedicated to this purpose. The main consideration is the amount of direct sun exposure the location received. The solar panels will perform at optimum levels when they receive direct sunlight. There may be certain things that affect the sunlight falling onto the panel such as surrounding trees and nearby structures. You can see whether a considerable difference can be made by trimming the trees that are closest to the location to avoid the shadow.
There are different mounting methods for solar panels. There are flush mounts, roof or ground mounts and pole mounts. You need to consider the size of the system you are installing and the cost involved in equipment and installation. Many governments offer subsidies to encourage the use of renewable energy. You can check if there is any scheme provided in your country and how to become eligible for them. There are certain equipment required for the system including solar panels, power inverter, battery and charge controller. To understand the size of the system required, you have to add the wattage of all electrical equipment in the house and consider the duration they are used per day. You can refer to your electricity bills as well. With these, you can understand the size of the solar energy system and the size of the solar battery required.
First, you need to fix the mounts and make sure they are facing the best direction to receive prolonged direct sunlight. The mounting structure will be kept at an angle. This will be determined by the solar company. Once the mounting structure is done, the solar panels need to be fixed onto it carefully. When mounting the panels onto the roof, the installers should be wearing protective equipment for safety and wrap the panels in a protective layer so that they will not be damaged during the move. If you are mounting on the ground, you have to build a foundation to mount the racking rails. Electrical wiring has to be done to connect the panels with each other. They can be fixed in a series or parallel connection. The system has to be connected to a solar inverter which is then connected to solar battery and the grid. Batteries are options and only needed in off grid solar systems as a backup. Once the solar energy system is connected to the grid, you have to start the inverter.
