Solar Panels

What are Solar Panels?

Solar photovoltaic panels (solar PV panels) are semiconductor devices composed of silicon that harness the sun's heat to produce electrical power. Homeowners across Ireland are installing solar PV panels by the thousands. It is important to note that solar PV panels are distinct from solar thermal collectors, which can supply sufficient energy for hot water but do not generate the electricity needed to power homes in Ireland.

Solar panels use their silicon surface to capture the radiation from the sun, which is located 150,000 kilometers away. When highly charged protons collide with the silicon atoms, they create a powerful direct electrical current. The electrical current is then channeled through wiring and protected by an exterior junction box.

After the electric current has been harnessed, it flows through a solar inverter, which converts direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC) to power buildings and connects to the electrical grid. Converting DC to AC is an essential component of sustainable energy and is found in numerous EV charge point models.

The maximum energy output of solar photovoltaic panels is measured in kWp. When energy is channeled through the heat of the sun, 1kWp generally translates to about 1000 kWh per year. Peak performance can be influenced by weather conditions and location, such as the south-facing position of the panels.

Significant advancements in the solar electricity industry have enabled homeowners to install future-proof solar PV panels while saving money and significantly reducing their carbon footprint. Currently, over 30,000 homeowners in Ireland have some form of solar energy infrastructure on their property.

Inverters & Diverters

WattCharger boasts the use of Fronius Inverters, a hallmark of efficiency and reliability, serving as the vital core of every photovoltaic system. With power categories spanning 1.5 to 100 kW, our inverters ensure suitability for all system sizes, from small-scale family homes to large commercial systems. Every property, whether domestic or commercial, operates under a Maximum Import Capacity (MIC), which sets the upper limit on total electrical demand. Our inverters are specifically designed to work within these limitations, making them an integral component of your electrical system.

In addition, WattCharger utilizes the Eddi Diverter, fully compatible with the Zappi Electric Car Charger. Rather than exporting excess solar energy back to the grid, our innovative Eddi Diverter redirects this surplus energy to your heating systems, car charger, or battery storage. This cutting-edge technology ensures that your solar energy is put to the most efficient use possible, saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint.
