GET TO KNOW HOW SIMPLE SOLAR IS

KEY SYSTEM COMPONENTS

Your Younergy Solar system is a new and important element of your home. The system integrates  seamlessly with your home’s electrical system to provide clean and renewable solar power.

SOLAR PANELS

Your solar system turns on automatically in the morning and turns off automatically at night. The  solar cells within the panels produce direct current (DC) electricity that flows to an inverter. Central inverters are placed close your electricity board and micro-inverters are directly installed under each solar panel.

INVERTER

The inverters convert DC electricity being produced by your panels into alternating current (AC), which is required for household use. The converted solar electricity is delivered directly to your home’s main electrical service panel

THE YOUNERGY MONITORING SYSTEM

Some Younergy solar systems come with the Younergy Monitoring System. Monitoring provides you with detailed information on the amount of energy your system is producing, in addition to historical data

GENERAL METER

The electric meter measures the electricity you consume from the grid and also the electricity you inject into the grid.

SOME QUICK FACTS ABOUT SOLAR ENERGY

Solar energy is becoming big. Let’s check some facts:
  • In 1447, Da Vinci predicted there would be a solar industrialization
  • The Earth receives more solar energy in one hour than its entire population uses in an entire year.
  • Solar panels generate 10 times more energy than what was needed to produce them.
  • Solar panels have a lifespan of between 30 and 35 years.
  • We would only need to cover a land area about the size of Spain to power the entire Earth renewably in 2030.

THE ORIGINS OF SOLAR ENERGY

The principle of collecting solar energy was first applied by Swiss aristocrat and physicist Horace de Saussure then transferred to the production of electricity by French scientist Edmond Becquerel. More than two centuries have passed since those discoveries with first regular applications occurring in early orbital satellites.
Unlike fossil fuels, the solar resource is virtually inexhaustible. The materials used in the production of solar PV panels include silicon which is the second most abundant material in the earth’s crust after oxygen. Other materials such as metals and glass are also available in large quantities and are highly recyclable. The environmental footprint of a solar PV system is therefore largely compensated by the clean energy produced over the long life of the panels.
