What is Solar PV?

Solar panels that produce electricity are known as solar photovoltaic (PV) modules. These panels generate DC electricity when exposed to light.

The system may include:

  • Solar panels
  • Hybrid inverter
  • Battery storage
  • Immersion diverter
  • Wifi operation & monitoring via app

A day in the life of an Energlaze Solar system – how much energy does it generate?

To illustrate just how much energy can be generated by solar panels in a single day we took a closer look at a house in Wexford, fitted with a 6 kWp Solar PV system and a 20 tube Solar thermal system.

how it works

HOW IT WORKS

 

Solar PV panels are typically installed on the roof of your home or garage. These Photovoltaic (PV) panels convert sunlight into DC power.

The DC power generated by your panels goes directly to your inverter/hybrid inverter where the DC (Direct Current) power is converted into AC (Alternating Current) power.

The AC power is then used to power your electrical appliances in the home.

With a standard inverter power is consumed immediately throughout your home with excess power fed to your immersion to heat your water.
With a Hybrid inverter, using its smart technology, it first prioritises power to your home, with excess diverted to your battery, immersion and car charger.

If you own an electric car, it can be charged using the power from your PV panels also, via the EVBox Electric Vehicle Charger.

When you require more electricity than generated by the panels, the excess power required will first be taken from your battery storage, then from the utility grid, your home will remain connected to the grid at all times.
