The major components of a solar electric system are:

  • Photovoltaic Modules

Photovoltaic (PV) cells that convert sunlight energy into electricity are combined, laminated and framed into one module.

  • Racking system

Racking systems are used to attach PV modules to a roof structure or ground mount application. Racking systems are typically set at a fixed tilt but some also provide tracking to follow the sun throughout the day.

  • Inverter

This device is used to convert direct current (DC) power produced by PV modules into alternating current (AC), the type of electrical current we find at our standard electrical socket.

  • Monitoring System

A key device which monitors power output to ensure that the system is operating properly and reliably. This data can also be displayed on a website and/or a screen at your facility.
