Solar panels use light energy from the sun to generate electricity through the photovoltaic effect. The majority of modules use wafer-based crystalline silicon cells or thin-film.
We are able to supply a range of solar panels and advise on the best solution to meet your needs.
Charge controllers charge the batteries and supply DC power to the load when there is solar power available. During low battery charge conditions the load is disconnected to ensure that the batteries operating life is optimized.
When there is no solar power the batteries supply power to the DC loads
Inverters are one of the main components of the PV system and can be separated into grid connected inverters and battery based inverters.
Grid connected inverters convert the DC solar power into AC power and then supply the power to the grid. They have controls in place to ensure that they turn off when there is no power supplied from the utility.
Battery based inverters convert the DC Solar power into AC in a similar fashion but with the ability to charge and manage a battery bank so that power available for use when there is no sun. These inverters also have the ability to interface with other power generating devices such as diesel generators and wind turbines using hybrid management software.
We can provide solutions for off grid applications for rural electrification of individual homes, small communities, remote medical centers and schools and hybrid mini grids with wind turbines and diesel generators.
We are able to supply off grid solutions for fixed, mobile, VSAT, radio, BTS and Transmission sites.
We are able to equip and install 100% solar solutions as well as hybrid solutions with diesel generators and wind turbines. Incorporating communication systems allows for remote monitoring of the sites allowing instant and continual information of the components powering the station.
Deep cycle batteries are designed for applications that require regular charging and discharging meaning that they are less susceptible to degradation due to this cycling.
There are a range of batteries for use for different applications such as small leisure batteries through to high quality batteries for professional applications.
We can advise on good compromise between price, lifespan, maintenance constraint and depending on type of usage.
Solar Pumping systems comprise of the PV modules, controller, pump, motor and other balance of systems components. Pumping starts as soon as the energy received by the modules is sufficient, pumped water volume is proportional to the solar energy received. The water gets stored in water tanks for later use. Sensors ensure that the pump stops when the well is dry or when the storage tank is full. We can also offer water purification systems when required.
