Solar Panels

solar panels

Sun is the original source of all energy, and we all benefit from its resources. With over 2.5 million installations, the solar power business in Australia is booming. Solar panels are an integral part of any solar system.

What makes a Solar Panel?

Silicon, metal, and glass are the main components of solar panels. Monocrystalline or polycrystalline silicon are components of standard panels. Silicon is a non-metal with conductive properties that give it the ability to convert sunlight into electricity. There are negative silicon strips and positive silicon strips layered inside the panel. When the lights interact with a silicon cell, Electrons set into motion. This motion initiates a flow of electricity.

When a number of photovoltaic cells are placed under the glass sheet, it makes solar panels. Silicon cells are paired with a metal casing and wiring, which allow the solar cell’s electrons to escape and supply useful power. Glass Casing is using for protecting Silicon PV, which makes panels more durable. Under the glass, the panels have a casing for insulation and a protective backsheet. This insulation limits the heat dissipation which would otherwise affect the solar output.

How do solar panels work?

Each solar panel contains photovoltaic cells that take light or photons from the sunlight. These have energy, but zero rest mass. When the photons collide with other particles their energy is converted to other forms depending on the kind of atoms they touch. Electricity can also be produced when the photons make electrons in the atoms so agitated that they break away and move about freely. The n-type silicon electrons seek out the ones in p-type silicon to replace their missing electrons and the flow between the two types produced. Silicon sustains the electrical imbalances which ensure a steady supply of electricity as long as photons hit the solar panels. Wires carried out this current throughout the system.

Use of solar inverter

When sunlight hits the solar panel, PV cells produce direct current (DC) electricity. DC electricity can’t power home on its own. Inverters convert DC electricity from solar panels to alternating current (AC) electricity. This electricity what powers the home. If the solar panels don’t produce enough energy to cover all the electricity needs, more energy can be automatically drawn from the utility.

Reduce carbon dioxide emissions

In the long run, people who go solar will save thousands of dollars since the sun will keep on providing energy that is more than enough throughout their lifetime. Finally, utilizing solar power can save people from fossil fuel dependence. Fossil fuels are not only nonrenewable but are also the main source of carbon dioxide emissions.

Select best solar system

We should consider the warranty period and future maintenance costs when buying solar power products.   At Regen, every product in their carefully-curated range comes from independently-rated suppliers and meets strict quality criteria. Regen supplies Australia’s best Tier 1 panels. They supply solar panels of leading brands like Qcells, Canadian, Trina, Jinko, Risen, Suntech, JA, Longi, LG, SunPower.

Solar repair cost varies depends on the brands. Many companies offer a long-term warranty as they don’t plan for the long run. If the solar dealer is not in the market, the client will have to meet the cost of repairs on their own. One can save these costs if they buy from a reputable dealer like Regen Power. Clients can have peace of mind when they go for solar panels with Regen Power.
