How does a solar energy system work?

The premise of a solar energy system is very straightforward and the benefits are therefore easily and reliably forecasted.

A Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Energy System relies on daylight which causes the PV cells within the solar panels to energise. With these cells being supported by silicon semi conductors of a positive and negative bias so direct current (DC) electricity is produced. Centreco offer trusted solar panels for business in the UK and by layering such structures and creating a solar array as a result so an efficient energy system is created.

This array is connected to an inverter, to convert the DC current to an alternating current (AC) with characteristics consistent with that to power drawn from the electrical grid. By introducing switching gear so an electricity network can use the electricity generated by the solar energy system rather than from the grid. As a result a property ends up using the “free” electricity generated by the daylight over the costly electricity provided by the electricity company.

In the event that the solar energy system generates more electricity than a property needs then this electricity is exported to the grid for use elsewhere and the owner of the system gets paid for the surplus generation by the electricity company.

Meters are put into the network to measure the amount of electricity generated by the solar energy system and the amount used on site and that exported back to the grid.

1 Solar panels generate DC electricity

Daylight causes the PV cells within the solar panels to energise and produce direct current (DC) electricity.

2 Inverter converts electricity to AC
Inverter, which can be mounted in a location to suit a client internally or externally, converts the DC electricity to alternating current (AC) for use.
3 Site uses solar power over grid
Existing electrical switchboard, re-configured to use solar power over that provided by the grid, fitted with new generation meters to measure solar electricity used on-site and exported from the site.
4 Grid connections stay in place
High-cost electricity supply from the National Grid through an electricity supply company.
5 Electricity drawn from grid only if needed
Solar power will be used over that provided by the grid. However, if extra power is required this is drawn on from the grid as normal.
6 Surplus solar power sold back to grid
In the event that the solar energy system is producing more power than the site requires, the surplus electricity is exported and sold back to the grid.
