How Does Solar Power Work?

Since the 1970s, home solar power systems have been gaining popularity across Australia. Presently, an estimated 100,000 homes nationwide enjoy the benefits of safe and reliable electricity from solar power.

Home solar power systems generally vary in size from 1kW up to 10kW, with the most common sizes being between 1.5 and 3kW. The number of solar panels in the system depends on the size, in watts, of each solar panel, for example 7 X 220 Watt solar panels make a 1.54kW system. You need approximately seven square meters of roof space per kilowatt for a solar panel system.

How Does Solar Power WorkThe solar panels should produce approximately 4kWh (kilowatt hours) of electricity per day for each kilowatt of panels on your roof….e.g. if you have a 2kW solar power system on your roof it should generate approximately 8kWh per day of electricity depending on factors like location, roof pitch and orientation. The solar panels should ideally be placed on a North facing roof, or within 45 degrees of North, if not a West or East facing roof will still achieve good production.

The process by which home solar power systems generate electricity is simple. When sunlight hits the solar panels on a roof, a DC electric current is produced. An inverter, connected between the solar panels and your switchboard, converts the DC current into AC current, which powers your home with any excess fed into the electricity grid. By creating your own clean green energy you are reducing the amount of electricity you need to buy from the power companies and hence saving money on your electricity bills.

*Based on a 1.5kW system and using all the solar electricity (5.85kWh/day) in your home at an average retail rate of 30c/kWh
