Let’s Build a System That Works for You

Solar systems feature a number of components that work together to capture clean energy, convert it into usable electricity, and safely manage its flow. With hundreds of options available on the market, it can be difficult for homeowners to know which technologies offer the performance and reliability they need while staying within their budget.

Younergy works only with partners we know and trust to deliver the best solar experience for our customers. Let us help you make the switch to clean energy, without the hassle!

System Components

What is a Solar Panel?

Solar panels, also known as solar modules, contain dozens of connected solar cells (each just 156 mm^2) that convert sunlight into electricity. The power of a solar panel is listed in watt peaks, which is the maximum output of the panel under ideal conditions. The amount of solar panels installed in a system depends on a number of factors, including available space, orientation, and average electricity consumption. The type of module used (crystalline silicon or thin film) will also impact the number of panels required to achieve the desired output.

The Centerpiece of Your System

Solar modules are the largest, most visible component of your solar system, and they will serve as a symbol of your commitment to clean energy. Younergy is proud to offer an extensive catalog of solar panels from the world’s leading providers to meet our customers’ unique needs. Modules are available in multiple sizes, with varying conversion efficiencies, and on rigid or flexible substrates so you are sure to find a design that looks great and performs well without stretching your budget. Each panel solution we offer is certified to exacting standards and is regularly inspected using X-ray and electroluminescence technologies to ensure premium quality.

What is a Mounting System?

Mounting systems are a crucial component, as they fix solar panels to a structure, whether that is the rooftop of a home or carport, or racks ballasted to the ground. This can be accomplished through multiple configurations, and in rooftop applications, systems can be mounted with or without penetrating the surface of the roof. A mounting system also ensures even distribution of weight across solar panels to mitigate structural stresses.

Secure Your Solar Investment

Is your system being placed on your home, atop a garage, or in the ground? Does your building feature a pitched, flat or green roof? Is it covered in shingles, ceramic tiles or corrugated metal? No matter where or how you want to install your solar system, we have a mounting solution that will bring your vision to life. Our partners’ durable, high-quality products are built to last, and our qualified engineers will keep your solar panels (and your investment) secured for the lifetime of the system.

What is an Inverter?

While residential and commercial properties are powered by alternating current (AC), the electricity produced by solar panels is direct current (DC). The role of the inverter is to convert the DC power generated on the rooftop to usable AC power. Depending on the technology, this conversion can be completed at the system, string (row of panels), or module level. Generally speaking, the more localized the inverter technology, the more efficient the conversion process.

Efficient, Safe Power Conversion

Our inverter partners have shipped millions of products to satisfied customers around the world. Whether you opt for a centralized technology or a microinverter on each module, Younergy’s experts will help you choose a solution to take your solar power from DC to AC as efficiently and economically as possible. We will also manage the connection of your system to the local grid in a timely manner, so you can enjoy all the benefits of solar power without the hassle.

What is an Electric Meter?

Home solar systems are equipped with electric meters to provide an accurate measurement of performance. The first meter is installed directly after the inverter to capture the overall production of the solar system; a second meter displays the amount of electricity consumed in the home. Should the system produce more electricity than is required by the home, this meter will display the amount of excess electricity fed back into the grid.

Performance You Can See

Your Younergy team will explain how you can reference your new electric meter to see how much electricity your rooftop system generates. You are likely familiar with the consumption meter supplied by your local energy company, which is used to calculate monthly electricity bills. What might not be familiar is the sight of your meter spinning backward, which means you are sending your excess clean electricity to the grid and earning money with your solar system!

What is a Solar Battery?

The primary drawback of solar power is, of course, that the sun does not always shine. This can present a challenge, as the average consumer’s peak electricity needs (morning and night) do not align with the timeframe of peak solar energy generation (midday). Without a battery, when a solar system produces more electricity than can be immediately consumed, the excess is sent back to the grid. However, with a solar battery, property owners can automatically and efficiently store this excess electricity for use at a later time. Solar batteries are sized according to the solar system output and the energy needs of a given property.

Solar Power Without the Sun!

Younergy works with the leading names in energy storage to safely capture and deliver solar power to your building, day or night. Battery technology will help you overcome the intermittency challenges of solar and fortify your clean energy ecosystem by ensuring you have access to every green electron produced by your solar panels. With the addition of energy storage, you can maximize self-consumption and strengthen your independence from regional energy suppliers and their fossil fuel-based resources.

 

What is a Heat Controller?

As we are making the move toward more energy efficient homes, the demands for innovative power solutions increases. Designed to automatically use excess solar power in order to increase solar energy usage, a heat controller is a relatively inexpensive device that allows you to decrease your electricity bills even more, improve energy independence, and enjoy automatic on-the-go device control. Ask one of our solar experts for how you can connect a heat controller to your solar system.

Quality & top performance

Solar panels are the centerpiece of your photo-voltaic system. All our selected modules are have European standardized certification and are designed for aesthetic integration into your home. We regularly inspect the solar modules using X-ray and electroluminescence to give you the highest quality for your solar system.
