How It Works

How it works

Solar energy is a great alternative for anyone who values independence and efficiency. Start using flexible, lightweight solar now.

How solar power system works

Sunlight shines on pv panels produce DC electricity most appliances in your home requires AC power and cannot run on DC.

DC electricity is sent to an inverter that turns it into AC that can be used to power normal home appliances.

Electricity is used to power the load connected to your solar power system. Any excess power that is not required by the load connected to the system will be stored in the battery bank this can be used at night when there is no sun or when the load exceeds the power supply by the pv.

If the load connected to the solar power system exceeds what the system is producing , the system will automatically switch to utility power supply in the demand.

Some of the solar systems are scalable so you can add pv panels and batteries if needed.

Below are some basic home appliances

Fridge x 1 = 150wh

Freezer x1 = 150wh

Lcd TV x 1 = 100wh

DStv decoder x1 = 40wh

Laptop x1 = 40wh

Energy saving lights x 10 (11w each) = 110wh

During peak hours the system can run all these appliances at once via solar power only.

During off peak hours (evening without sun) all the appliances can run on power supplied by the batteries.

To confirm your exact appliances ( kwh) usage you need to check the power rating on the appliances

Most solar power systems are not actually design to run extremely power hungry devices such as to run geysers, air conditioners, heaters, welding machine and electrical stove etc. Running such power hungry appliances on solar systems will make the cost of the system extremely expensive.

How solar water heating system works

The system has a copper header inside the tank a heat exchanger

Tubes have copper rods inside that fit into the copper header of the geyser these are called heat pipes

Each of the heat pipes has heat transfer fluid inside that boils at 30 degrees Celsius

The sun shines on the tubes and heat is transferred to that heat pipe and the fluid inside heats up at 30 degrees the fluid boils and rises to the top of the heat pipe that is inserted into the heat exchanger inside the tank the heat exchanger then heats up and transfers the heat to water around it

What Customers Say

“Thank you so much! Every single person we’ve dealt with during this project has been a consummate professional. I was very impressed with the care taken by the installers to do the job right and clean everything up afterwards. You guys are the best that I know of. Thanks!”

Taylor Little, Austin, TX

“Everyone, from the first phone call to the last, has been a pleasure to deal with. All of our requests were taken into account and incorporated into the project. The installation process was astonishingly smooth. I would recommend you to all my friends. Thank you so much.”

Jenna Owens, Boston, MA

“I’ve decided to go entirely off the grid but had no actual clue where to start. These guys went above and beyond with their support, working out all of the intricacies of the project with me. Now, I can confidently say that I’ve got exactly what I needed. You’ve done a wonderful job!”
