Solar panels, Grid-Tie / Off-Grid Battery-Based Inverters

PV Modules – Solar Panels Solar photovoltaic modules, often referred to as solar panels, convert light energy into a direct electrical current (DC). As solid-state devices, solar modules have no moving parts and are extremely reliable and durable compared to any other generator technology. While solar modules have become somewhat commoditized in recent years, there are important differences in form, quality, and performance that can impact both installation time and long-term system performance. We offer a selection of high-quality crystalline modules with a variety of features and price points to suit virtually any project. Output Characteristics The output power, voltage, and...

SOLAR INSTALLATION AND ELECTRICAL PARTS - WATER PUMPS - WIND POWER SYSTEMS

INSTALLATION & ELECTRICAL DISTRIBUTION PARTS POWER PANELS Power panels provide a central location for mounting inverters and charge controllers in battery systems and include enclosures for wiring, over-current protection, ground-fault  and surge protection, bypasses and related hardware. FUSES AND BREAKERS Fuses and breakers are designed to prevent excessive current from overheating conductors or devices by opening the circuit. Specialized breakers can also be deployed to open the circuit in case of arc-fault conditions. Fuses and breakers should be sized according to NEC and/or manufacturer guidelines to ensure that they open the circuit before conductors or equipment can become damaged. SURGE...

SOLAR RACKING AND MOUNTING - BATTERIES AND STORAGE - CHARGE CONTROLLERS - SYSTEM MONITORING

RACKING & MOUNTING Mounting structures are used to fix solar panels (PV modules) to the roof or to the ground so they aren’t moved by wind or snow. Be sure to consult the solar panel manufacturer’s installation manual when selecting and configuring a mounting system as not all modules are compatible with all mounting methods. If the manufacturer doesn’t explicitly allow for the type of clamp and mounting locations or grounding method used by the mounting system, it may not pass inspection. Most modules can be fastened via holes in the bottom flange of the frame but this can be awkward and time consuming. Some...
