Our solar power systems make solar energy easy and affordable
How do residential solar systems work?
A standard solar power system consists of photovoltaic (PV) panels mounted to your roof, with the panels connected to an inverter (or multiple inverters) on your wall in your home.
This inverter is connected to your home’s switchboard, forming a link between the solar panels on your roof and the energy requirements of your home. When sunlight hits the PV cells in the solar panels, electrons inside the panels are knocked loose and move around.
These loose electrons are captured and start to move in the same direction around a circuit, which ultimately forms direct current (DC) electricity. This DC electricity moves down the wires from your solar panels to the inverter (or inverters) on your wall, where the inverter converts this DC electricity into alternating current (AC) power to be used in your home.

What makes up a solar power system?
Solar panels and mounting frames
Your solar panels can be placed in strategic locations on your roof based on the sunshine hours in your area and your energy needs, to maximize your savings.
The mounting system secure the panels to your roof. High-quality racking components are incredibly important to support your investment. Installation should be safe and secure and conducted by qualified, Clean Energy Council approved installers.
Although your panels may capture a lot of sunlight, the type and size of inverter you install will have a large effect on the amount of solar-generated electricity that can actually be converted and used in your home.
You could think of the solar inverter as the ‘brains’ of your system: many people think the panels are the most important aspect, but it’s the inverter that tells them what to do. This makes it one of the most important components of your solar system to consider.
Cables, switches & monitoring equipment
Just like any electrical systems, cables and switches are needed to connect your solar system components to each other, and your inverter to your switchboard.
You may also have monitoring devices to help you track and understand your system’s performance. This information helps you understand your solar energy production and usage, and how you can optimise self-consumption.
