PV (Photo Voltaic) or Solar panels, converts light (Sunlight) directly into electricity (DC current). Simply put, a Solar PV system is a power station that generates electricity from sunlight.
1. Solar Panels or Modules: Solar panels consist of a group of small cells made from semiconductor material. When the sun’s light falls on the modules, it excites the electrons, thereby creating direct current (DC).
2. Solar Inverter: The DC electricity goes into an inverter that converts it into alternating current (AC). We use AC for running our household or office or factory equipment.
3. Storage Battery (optional): The best use of solar energy is to consume it while it is being generated. If the requirement is to store this power and consume it in the non-sunny hours, then solar energy can be stored in batteries for later consumption.
Yes...! Solar power can power each and every device at your home or office. Solar power is the same as the current you receive from the State Electricity Board.
Since solar power generates electricity directly in accordance with sunlight, solar systems won't generate any electricity at night. BUT that doesn't mean that Solar systems won't be helpful. In the case of On-grid Systems, Solar will still save you money at the end of the month. Moreover, Off-grid system will utilize the help of the battery to power your home at night.
