How solar works
The inverter size you choose depends on the power in watts (or current in amps) of the appliance/equipment you want to run...
Solar cells are inter-connected in a matrix to form a module. One solar cell produces electricity at a voltage of approximately 0.5 volt at room temperature, so 36 cells connected together in a module produce enough voltage to charge a 12-volt battery.
Most people understand that the sun gives life to all things on this planet through its light and heat, but the sun also produces many other things. The process of solar energy began in the center of the sun, almost a million years ago.
A charge controller’s main function is to optimize a PV array’s output which can fluctuate based on shading and temperature variables found on the average roof.
Global horizontal irradiation is the most important parameter for evaluation of solar energy potential of a particular region and the most basic value for PV simulations.
