What Should You Know about Solar PV Kits?

Published on by Latitude51 Solar

On grid solar PV kits are the perfect way to make your house or business energy efficient. These kits are fully certified and comprise of everything you require to go green. The PV systems are fully expandable.

When it comes to investing in solar PV kits, you can begin with a 1 KW system and add more to it any time. The only thing you should consider is the amount of roof space you have for its installation.

Upon using on-grid solar system, you can become a small business owner as you’re using your investment in solar PV to produce energy which you will sell back to the utility company. As a result, it will help you write off your investment and help you generate ROI much faster than the usual.


Understanding Better about Solar PV Kits

Specific materials exhibit photoelectric property occurring at the atomic level. This is the principle in which a semiconductor material absorbs solar photons and releases negative electrons.

The solar systems use two charged layers like a negative layer and a positive layer. Electrons from the negative layer release and then start flowing to the positive layer. When the solar radiations intensify rapidly, the flow will be more and the stronger the current will be.

The photocell semiconductor layers are made using silica wafers, opposite charged by coating them with certain material. The front area of the cell comprises of negatively charged layer and is coated in phosphorous. The back side is the positive layer and is coated by boron.

The solar radiation hits the negative layer and frees the electrons that will be absorbed by positive layer. Both of the layers are separated by a metal coating which will direct the flow of electrons towards wires. By putting load between both the layer, you can produce current and DC power.


PV cells and modules

Every PV (photovoltaic) cell is known as a cell and the cells are combined together to form a PV module. Most popular modules available for use include 60 cells and even larger 72 cells have become more common recently.

Generally, a 60 cell produces around 220-280 watts power depending on the manufacturer type whereas a 72 cell produces around 280-340 watts.

Solar inverter

In a solar PV system, the primary energy is DC that comes from the cell. But DC power is used in the household. Though DC appliances and lighting fixtures can be available and used by a solar PV kit, it’s very common to find AC appliances.

For instance, you can find DC appliances and lights in automobiles and camper trailers. Generally, you need AC for daily living purposes like vacuuming, washing machines, TV, computers, etc.

For the conversion of DC to AC, an inverter is a must in a solar PV system. Inverters are quite popular alternatives for DC to AC conversions.


There are three different storage options that you can consider for solar energy storage in solar PV kits. They include DC batteries, hot water tanks and on grid or net metering.
