How It Works

Did you know about the Photo-Electric Effect?

Albert Einstein discovered the Photoelectric Effect in 1905 and went on the win the Nobel prize in 1921. This is the physics that underpins how Solar PV panels work

The idea is simple – use sunlight to generate electricity to power your home.

Store your excess energy in a battery to use at night. Sit back and enjoy those savings.

Understanding your PV Solar System

Solar PV Panels

Use cells to convert sunlight into DC electricity. The PV cell consists of one or two layers of a semi conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers causing electricity to flow.

The DC Power

Runs from the PV panels to the inverter. Here it is converted from DC to useable AC power.

At this point

The electricity you have generated will either be sent to your fuse board to be used or stored in a battery.

Excess Energy

Is stored in your battery or routed to your hot water tank by our smart & automated immersion controller.

And there you have it

Electricity to power your home and reduce your reliance on the national grid for energy!
