Solar PV systems can be classified based on the end-use application of the technology. There are two main types of solar PV systems: grid-connected (or grid-tied) and off-grid (or standalone) solar PV systems
A solar PV system is powered by many crystalline or thin-film PV modules. Individual PV cells are interconnected to form a PV module. This takes the form of a panel for easy installation. The cells contain in solar panels convert sunlight into Direct current (DC) electric power. The DC output of the solar cell depends on multiple factors including environmental and technical. Low efficiency reduces the output of solar panels and it reduces the ROI of the solar system.
When installing a solar system, house owners mainly look into these key points: efficiency of solar panels, aesthetic of solar panels, cost of the solar system, and professional installation.
The efficiency of solar panels
Two key cost drivers are the efficiency with which sunlight is converted into power and how this relationship changes over time. Solar installers offer monocrystalline panels to set up a solar energy system in a normal household. Monocrystalline panels are the most efficient solar panels compared to other technologies. Solar modules (and cells within) need uninterrupted sunlight to produce maximum electrical energy. With the shadow even on a part of the module, the generation reduces to a great extent thereby wasting installed system capacity.
Solar Panel Cost in Brisbane
The cost of your solar PV system will depend on many factors: system configuration, equipment options, labour cost and financing cost. Prices also vary depending on factors such as whether or not your home is new, and whether the PV modules are integrated into the roof or mounted on the roof. The cost also depends on the system size or rating, and the amount of electricity it produces. There are many professional solar installation companies in Brisbane. These companies offer different types of packages that come with 3.3kW, 6.6 kW, 10kW. Apart from these solar installation packages, you can customize as per your power usage.
Generally, solar PV systems installation cost is high. You can save money on your electricity bill. But even with these savings, it will take a long time to recover the capital cost of the solar PV installation. The Australian government is providing rebates for solar system installation. The maintenance cost very low, also solar panel companies are providing 10 years manufacturer’s warranty and 25 performance warranties.
Aesthetic of solar panels
The important thing to bear in mind is that if you are considering installing solar panels on your property you do have options about how the solar panels will appear. Contact a professional installer and request for a site visit. You will get more ideas about the aesthetic part of the solar system.
Regular maintenance of the solar system
During the defect liability period (usually for 12 months after installation), solar PV system contractors usually use remote monitoring data to prepare monthly performance reports of the installed solar PV system. They should come on site to rectify any problems flagged by the remote monitoring service.
Always select a professional solar system installation. Check the Licensing and Certification for the installer. Go through the customer reviews in different portals.
