Efficient Solar Panel Installation System

  2. 2. Efficient solar panel installation system For efficient solar panel installation system, you must understand these important suggestions • The amount of power your household consumes • The direction of your solar panel • Grid tie inverter
  3. 3. The amount of power your household consumes • Since it is possible to run all your appliances with your solar system, you must know how many home appliances will run on the new solar panels. For instance, an average household can contain appliances like lighting, computer, space heating, space cooling, water heating, and other electronic appliances.
  4. 4. Keep in mind that in summer heating reduces and it increases in winter. Cooling also increases in summer and it reduces in winter. If you live in a sunny region, your heating expenses will dramatically fall and this area can be good for solar power. It is essential to record the actual wattage of your appliances to get a clear picture of how many solar panels your household needs.
  5. 5. The direction of your solar panel • Reasonably enough, it is essential to keep your solar panels in the direction of most sunlight and for the longest period during daytime. • Sometimes this can be a daunting task if there are shades around from tall buildings and trees. But it is good to note that you are not obliged to install your solar panel on a roof, you can put your system on the ground using stand alone facilities to get the best sun exposure. This can be a good option in tweaking your panels for the best performance. But if you are installing it on
  6. 6. Grid tie inverter A grid-tie inverter is a power inverter that converts direct current (DC) electri city into alternating current (AC) with an ability to synchronize to interface with a utility line. This is necessary, because the majority of electronic devices in your house use AC. Everyone, preparing to build solar panels, should strongly consider going with a grid tie inverter.
  7. 7. Battery The number of batteries you need depends greatly on your energy requirements. For instance, if you use LED lighting and a few small appliances intermittently, a 100 AH battery may suffice, assuming you have the correct sized solar panel to charge it. For complete household appliances, you will
  8. 8. You will also require a solar regulator ( also known as a charger controller) to monitor the battery bank and regulate the charge to ensure maximum charging without damaging the battery bank through overcharging. The size of your regulator should exceed the total amp rating of your solar panels because they are rated by the amount of current they can receive from the solar panels. They must therefore be able to handle the maximum current that can be produced by the solar panels.
  9. 9. Metal frame • The Solar panel is encased in a metal frame (most of the time aluminum) which will allow the panels to be screwed or clamped easily on roofs. • Other materials needed for installation are: roof anchors, made of aluminum or steel. They are used as bases where the mounting frame is attached. • Special locking system and bolts to screw the metal frame tightly. • The clamp, used to secure the solar panels on the mounting frame. It may be end-clamp and
  10. 10. After you have all the components needed for efficient solar panel installation system, the installation process may be done by homeowners using the installation tips found on the web or may be done by a professional solar panel installer. A professional solar panel system installer will survey the area, particularly the location where it is mounted.
  11. 11. Efficient solar panel installation process 1. Scaffolding. Scaffolding is also called staging, it is a temporary structure a solar panel installer can use to support himself during the installation. It is placed before the installation process begins. It is usually erected to reach the roofs for easy mounting. Ladders are incorporated to ensure safety in accordance with the Health and Safety codes.
  12. 12. 2. Surveying and positioning the roof anchors. You will first survey your roof, measure it and mark it to indicate correct positioning of panels. Positioning phase is very vital in every installation to ensure that the panel frames are in its correct locations.
  13. 13. 3. Attaching the frame. • After properly securing roof anchors on the roof, the aluminum mounting frame or bars are attached. Ensure that they are parallel to each other before locking them in place.
  14. 14. 4. Installing Solar panels. After mounting the bars where the frames are placed properly, the solar panels can be installed. They may be in rows or columns depending on the space of the roof.
  15. 15. 5. Wiring the panels. The solar panels must be wired together to produce a complete electrical system.
  16. 16. Conclusion • Adding solar panels to your roof or backyard requires an upfront investment, but in the long run, it could save you a lot of money. To verify whether this investment would be worthwhile for you, you can visit how much does a solar panel cost. With efficient solar panel installation system, you can also check your system’s performance and shorten the payback
