TYPES OF SOLAR SYSTEMS
Traditional String System
A conventional crystalline silicon solar cell or photovoltaic cell (in very early days as of 2005 also termed “solar battery”). A conventional Solar Cell is an electrical device made from busbars and the fingers are printed on a silicon wafer.
Micro Inverter System
An inverter turns the energy harnessed from the sun by the solar modules we install on the rooves of houses and commercial premises into a form that can be converted into usable electricity.
STORAGE HYBRID SYSTEM
When choosing a solar power system, most households and businesses choose either a grid-connected or an off-grid system.
