  1. Things to Consider before Installing Solar Inverters

    When you think of the important components of a solar power system, the first thing that may come to mind are the panels that will collect the sun’s energy and convert it to DC electricity. They are the most visible piece of the solar power puzzle, of course. There also must be batteries to store the electricity generated by the panels so that you can meet your power needs even when the sun isn’t shining. Of equal importance to your system are the less conspicuous solar inverters. The inverters in your system make the DC power generated by your panels (and stored in your batteries if installed) usable by the AC appliances and electrical infrastructure in your household.

  2. Tips for Maintaining Your Lead Acid Solar Batteries

    The typical photovoltaic system used to generate household electricity is quite simple, as it consists of only a few basic components. Of course, the system features solar panels that gather the sun’s energy, an inverter that makes the energy that’s collected usable in a household setting, and the batteries that store the excess energy generated by your panels. The batteries represent a crucial component in the system because not every day can be sunny, and your solar power storage determines how long you can power your home on dreary, overcast days.

    Your solar panel battery bank may provide reliable service, but if you decide to go with Lead Acid batteries, there are some maintenance tasks that must be handled to wiring the maximum lifespan from it. Batteries for solar energy storage can be expensive, so it’s important to make sure they provide a full service life prior to replacement. Fortunately, by following a few guidelines and performing maintenance tasks, you can make sure that you get the most from your solar battery bank. Keep reading to learn what you can do to prevent the premature demise of your critical solar batteries.

  3. Rapid Shutdown Certification

    The Symo advanced three phase string inverter by Fronius, is the first to be awarded an official SunSpec Rapid Shutdown certification. The inverter has an integrated PLC (Power Line Communication) transmitter that complies with the SunSpec rapid shutdown communication standard. This is a major victory for Fronius, who began shipping the inverters in January 2019, and for SunSpec, who is looking to expand the use of solar power with inverters and other similar products soon. Here is how the SunSpec Alliance’s rapid shut down certification is changing the technology industry for the better.
