  • 1. SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC – HOW IT WORKS Solar Panel Installer Perth
  • 2. HOW DOES THE SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC WORKS? Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels on the roofs of homes and businesses capture the sun's energy to generate electricity cleanly and quietly. Light energy is converted directly into electricity by transferring sunlight photon energy into electrical energy. This conversion takes place within cells of specially fabricated semiconductor crystals. Your footer here -
  • 3. While it might be true that solar cannot generate electricity all the time, it does generate electricity when it is needed most – during the day and on hot sunny days when electricity demand is at its peak driven by air-conditioners. Importantly, electricity is generated at the point of demand where people live and work which means there is no need to transfer the energy long distances across expensive infrastructure.

  • 4. Solar PV power is installed on almost 200,000 rooftops across Australia. At the end of September 2010 we had over 300 megawatts of solar PV capacity installed nationwide - an increase of almost 10 times in less than two years. The majority of solar PV installations are grid-connected systems. However solar PV also has a long history of supplying reliable 'off grid' power to remote and regional Australian communities.

  • 5. With the right federal policy in place providing incentives for take-up, we can ensure continued growth of Australia's solar PV industry. The Clean Energy Council is actively advocating for a gross metering feed in tariff that will be set high enough and for long enough to encourage increased take-up of the technology nationwide.

  • 6. Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels are generally fitted on the roof in a northerly direction and at an angle to maximise the amount of sunlight that hits the panels. Solar PV panels on the roofs of homes and businesses generate clean electricity by converting the energy in sunlight. This conversion takes place within modules of specially fabricated materials that make up the solar panels. It is a relatively simple process that requires no moving parts. In most cases solar panels are connected to the mains power supply through a device called an inverter. Your footer here -
  • 7. Solar panels are different to solar hot water systems, which are also mounted on household roof-tops but use the heat from the sun to provide hot water for household uses. The technology to convert sunlight into electricity was developed in the 19th century, but it was only in the second half of the 20th century that development accelerated behind the need to provide reliable supplies of electricity in remote locations – from satellites in space to outback Australia.

  • 8. Solar panels have been installed on the rooftops of houses and other buildings in Australia since the 1970s. Currently there are more than 100,000 solar panel systems safely and reliably delivering clean electricity across Australia.
