Solar Installation Services
Solar Backup Power Installations
Solar backup power solutions can come in different shapes and sizes. Either you can get “off-the-grid” or implement a hybrid solution. Solar backup power installations typically comprise of 3 main areas: Solar Panel or PV Panel Installation, Inverter Installation and Battery Installation. It is also important to mention that making sure these 3 components can “speak” to each other is important.
Solar installations are unfortunately not a “one size fits all” solution. Each installation is unique depending on a variety of factors. These include:
- Residential vs Commercial
- Are you using solar as a backup solution or are you hoping to get off the grid?
- Your Power Consumption
These factors are just the tip of an iceberg. Sound too complicated? Don’t worry, we’re the experts!
Solar Panel Installation
Solar panels typically sit on a building roof with good access to sunlight. Solar panels can also be called “PV Panels” which stands for “Photovoltaic panel”.
We offer solar panel installation services throughout Pietermaritzburg, the midlands and greater KwaZulu-Natal area.
Inverters come in many shapes and sizes. Some are “Smart” and can connect to an app on your phone, while others are more simple. The inverter is responsible for converting the inconsistent power from your solar panels into a consistent current. They’re also responsible for charging your batteries from either your main electrical supply or solar panels. When you need to use the backup power, the inverter converts the current from a lower voltage to a 220v – 240v current that you can use to power your appliances.
Blomeyers Electrical can do Inverter Installations throughout the Midlands and greater KwaZulu-Natal area.
Solar Battery Installation
A common misconception with Solar Backup Power is that the power comes from the solar panels. This is only partially true. The solar panels are primarily responsible for charging the batteries through the inverter.
Batteries tend to be one of the most expensive components in a solar backup power system. Choosing the right battery for your backup system is important. Every solar system will have different battery requirements. This is why it is important to get a professional in to aid you with this process.
