How does solar power work?

Solar panels that are installed on the roof of your property can generate electricity from sunlight. Each solar panel is made up of photovoltaic cells which collect the light from the sun that is converted into DC current. Solahart also installs an inverter that can convert this to 240V AC so the energy can be used to power your home.

The amount of electricity you can produce from your solar panel installation depends on the number of panels, their efficiency, the size of the inverter, the orientation of your roof and the amount of sunlight you receive at your location.

A solar power installation does keep your home connected to the public power grid so that when you generate more electricity than you need it can be fed back into the grid. Alternatively, you can purchase more electricity when your solar panels aren’t able to generate as much electricity as you need.

How much do solar panels cost?

The cost of a solar panel in Newcastle will vary depending on the size, its sensitivity & the type of application it is being used on. Getting a price for the cost of a solar panel is only one part of the puzzle though and it will not provide you a solar energy solution.

The Solahart Newcastle team can provide you with a solar panel cost that includes installation as well as the set up of an inverter that will convert your solar energy into usable electricity. Depending on the site, type of products chosen and the installation requirements the cost of a solar panel installation will vary.

How can you calculate how much solar power you need?

To work out how much solar power you need the first step is to understand how much electricity you use and when you use it during a normal day. So for example a typical home uses 20kWh of energy a day, so a 5kW solar system could meet most of the daytime power needs in that situation.

Although you may use more than that in any given day or want to store power for use at night time (or cloudy days) which would require battery storage systems that are charged by the solar power panels during the day.

We also get asked how many solar panels will be needed, but it is important to remember it is the power output of your whole solar system that is more important than the size or number of panels you have.

The higher each panel’s nominal power rating (and actual power output), the fewer panels you’ll need (or the more power you’ll generate). If you have plenty of roof space, you might find it more economical to buy cheaper panels with lower efficiency and just use more of them.
