The Components of Your Solar System

Solar energy is energy generated by harvesting light from the sun. This phenomenon is called the photovoltaic effect. Solar panels placed on premises’ roof or ground, work by allowing particles of light to generate a flow of direct current (DC) electricity. The DC current is converted to usable alternating current (AC) by means of an inverter. This AC current electricity is the type that is typically used when you plug anything into the wall socket in your home.

How Your Solar System Works

  1. Solar panels convert sunlight to DC.
  2. Inverters converts to AC
  3. The current passes through a meter and switchboard. It’s then distributed to your home.
  4. Your appliances use electricity.
  5. Excess electricity is stored in a battery.
  6. Excess power can also be supplied to the grid.

Solar Panels

The ‘face’ of your solar system. During the daylight, your solar panels work by capturing the Sun’s light and stimulate electrons built into the solar cells in the solar panels to generate direct current (DC) electricity. There are a wide variety of solar panels available and Sunface Solar are your experts in choosing the right solar panel to suit your solar system needs.


The ‘hardworking’ piece of your solar system. The purpose of your inverter is to convert DC electricity generated from your solar panels into 240V AC electricity which can be used to power your home or business.


The ‘storage’ of your solar system.  Batteries are used to store the electricity generated throughout the day to be used at night when your system is no longer generating power. Solar battery technology is a quickly developing component of your solar system, and an essential element if your lifestyle means that the majority of your usage is in the evenings.
