On Grid Solar System

What is a Solar System?

As the demand and prices of electricity have kept on rising, the world looks at renewable energy sources for its power needs. In the recent years, solar energy has become a popular renewable energy source because of its falling costs and improving efficiencies.


A solar system is a setup that generates electricity by utilizing the solar energy system. A typical solar system consists of solar panels (which absorb sunlight), inverter (which converts DC into AC), mounting structure (that hold the panels in place) and grid box and balance of systems (wires, nuts etc.). A solar system comes in various sizes like 1 kW, 3kW, 5kW, 10kW etc.
