Solar Energy Supplies
setting up solar energy for a business or home certain supplies are
needed. Panels are an obvious necessity, along with wiring, brackets,
a bi-directional electric meter, an AC to DC converter and a storage
set-up. Most of these items can be purchased online or though a local
electrician with knowledge of solar technology.
Of all the supplies needed for solar energy the panels are the most
crucial component. The panels will needs to be mounted on brackets that
anchor the panels securely and allow for airflow to keep panels cool.
Once the panels are installed they are virtually maintenance free.
The wiring should be installed by an electrician with experience in
solar energy. Because solar power needs to be converted from alternating
current to direct current that is used in most buildings a converter
will be among the supplies needed. A bi-directional meter also allows
the building owner to sell their power back into the grid and storage
or battery setup will be needed to keep the power flowing during cloudy
days and dark hours.
