Solar panels have recently become increasingly popular and a lot of households and business owners are switching to this renewable and clean form of energy as opposed to traditional forms. But the important thing is how are these panels installed?
Given below is the brief breakdown of all the essentials tools and steps needed during a Solar panel installation:
The different components in a solar panel system

A typical solar power system consists of a wide range of solar panels or in other words modules, an inverter with a digital solid state controller and a mounting system. The solar panels create electricity using the light directly derived from the sun. The inverter changes the DC electricity made by the solar panels into AC electricity which is then used to power appliances around the home or office. The computerised controller also keeps the solar power system in check and makes sure it works perfectly. A typical solar system is built in a way that it stops working as soon as there is a power failure. In appliances that have not been connected to the main power grid or use back up power, it is better to use batteries.

Solar Panel Installation

For most customers whether they are commercial or residential, the roof is the best location for solar panel installation. It usually has the perfect requirements and can accommodate most solar panels comfortably. All you need are the appropriate flashings and mounting hardware. For areas where the roof space cannot accommodate a solar panel, other options include ground mount options or shade awnings.

Inverter Installation
The inverter is usually installed near the main panel either outside or inside. As it is composed of solid-state electronics and performs its best during cooler conditions, it should be kept out of the heat and bright sunlight. Normally the best location is next to the main electric panel.
System Monitoring

System monitoring allows you to view you solar power system’s performance remotely through a wireless device like a mobile or tablet or even on your computer.
Supplementary Hardware
If you decide to go with a standalone energy solution or battery backup system, the company you purchased your solar system can customise one to your specifications. It’s best to talk to them directly and let them know what your individual needs are regarding the panel options.
How to maintain and take care of your solar panels?
Solar panels normally don’t require a lot of maintenance since they are not made up of any moving parts. However it is essential that a few times a year, you inspect the panels carefully for any debris or dirt that may have accumulated around them. Always ensure you are well equipped to handle the task, protect yourself with gloves and appropriate clothing such as boots and eye protection and use a ladder if your solar panel system is way too high to reach. For simple clean up, you can use a garden hose to wash the dust or debris and wipe down with a cloth or allow it to air dry. Avoid spraying water when the panels are too hot as you might risk damaging them. Allow them to cool a little before going anywhere near them to avoid unnecessary injury.
Some solar panel installation companies offer to clean the panels themselves for no extra charge, its best to hire professionals when the task is beyond your ability. You can be assured; the task will get done perfectly and without any damage as they will know what they are doing. Its best to schedule regular updates to avoid any hidden damage or slacking off in the maintenance of your solar power system.
