When a solar panel converts solar energy into DC electricity it needs a power inverter to convert the direct current into AC power to make it ready for use in everyday appliances. Other than the solar modules and inverter – module mounting structure, wiring, distribution boxes, etc form the balance of the system.
PV Layout & System Design
Once the material is chosen, the next important step is the solar array layout and design. The panels have to be placed in a manner to avoid shading from trees or nearby construction, then the orientation and tilt of the PV modules also play an important role to ensure the system is gaining maximum sunlight in a day.
Once all the logistics have been identified – the final decision of the large investment has to be made keeping in mind the tax benefits associated with solar. And how the same can help reduce your overall investment costs in a span of time. Another beneficial scheme associated with solar power is net metering – you have the benefit of selling that extra energy produced back to the grid and get a reduction in your future bills.
