It’s a science

The science of solar energy can seem complex, but once you understand the process, you’ll see how these systems can result in significant savings on your energy bills. Not to mention, you’ll be contributing towards a greener, more sustainable future. Let’s explore the solar power process and how MyHomeSolar, in partnership with Energizer and SolarEdge, can help you harness the sun’s power 24/7.

Here’s how it works, from the sun to your savings!

Solar Panels

At the core of any solar energy system lie the solar panels, the essential components that harness the sun’s rays. High-quality solar panels are designed for peak efficiency and durability, utilizing advanced Mono-crystalline PERC technology to convert light into electricity effectively. These panels are engineered to perform even in low-light conditions, ensuring that your home remains powered and your storage battery gets charged throughout the daylight hours, regardless of the weather.

SolarEdge Inverter and Power Optimisers 

The energy produced by your panels isn’t immediately ready for home use. That’s where the SolarEdge Inverter comes into play. It converts the direct current (DC) electricity from your panels into alternating current (AC) that can be used in your home. 

The SolarEdge Power Optimisers, attached to each solar module, increase system energy production by continually tracking the Maximum Power Point (MPP) of each individual solar module. This ensures you’re getting the most energy out of your solar panels.

Battery Storage 

To maximise the use of solar energy, you need a way to store excess electricity for use when the sun isn’t shining. The batteries we provide serve this purpose, storing energy for when you need it most. They power your home when the solar panels aren’t producing electricity, saving you from having to buy expensive power from the grid.

Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) 

Solar energy systems often produce more power than a home can use. With the SEG, you can sell this excess power back to the grid. Many energy companies offer excellent prices for this excess energy, providing another way to save money with your solar system.
