Frequently asked questions

What is a solar PV system?

A solar photovoltaic system (PV system) or solar power system, is an electric power system designed to supply usable solar power by means of converting sunlight into electrical energy for both residential and business purposes. Solar panels capture energy from sunlight, which is the converted into energy in a usable form for household application to power the home or devices within the home by an inverter. 

How does solar work?

Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, are arranged in a modular fashion to take advantage of the space you have available. Sunlight is absorbed by the panels and converted to DC (Direct Current) electricity. This is then converted to AC (Alternating Current) power by the inverter – AC power can be used by standard household appliances, when operating at the same time.

When your solar system isn’t generating enough power (e.g. at night), your power will come from the electricity grid. If you generate more power than you use, it will be fed back into the grid.

What determines my solar system’s output?

The amount of energy your solar system produces is mainly determined by the size of the system. However, other factors do come into play, such as your location, the facing direction and angle of your panels (how much shade they get), the weather and the season.

Can solar panels be installed on a flat roof?

Yes. However, if you have a flat roof, our installers will generally install with a tilt frame. This not only increases your panels’ capacity to harness the sun (and therefore the amount of energy they generate), but also helps make the panels self-cleaning.

Can I increase the size of my solar PV system?

Yes. If you choose a smaller system and want to upsize, you can grow your solar energy system by purchasing more panels, as long as you have space on your roof and an inverter with additional capacity. Your installer will be able to help answer any further questions you have about this.
