Inland Solar can install a range of solar products to reduce your power costs for your home or office. Our staff are able to assess your needs and make recommendations for the most suitable type for your property.
Powering your home with solar energy relies on solar cells, also known as Photovoltaic or photoelectric cells. These cells convert light directly into energy, pulling in enough power with just one square metre of solar panel to run a 100 watt light bulb. Photovoltaic systems can be used to power your entire home, they rely on a sunny climate to provide ample power.
Solar Hot Water Systems
A solar hot water system has two main parts to generate energy - a solar collector and a storage tank. The collector is a thin rectangular box with a transparent cover that is mounted to the roof. It faces the sun to collect the rays and heats an absorber plate, which then heats the fluid running through tubes built into the solar collector.
The heated fluid is circulated between the collector and the storage tank either naturally (called thermo-siphoning) or using a pump. The heated fluid is then replaced with the colder fluids that were in the tanks, in a cyclical system.
Commercial & Residential Solar Power Connections
Inland Solar can assist you with Tamworth solar power installations for commercial and residential properties. There are two main connection types - grid connect power and standalone power.
Grid connect power pulls energy from a series of solar panels to power your home. Any unused power is fed into the grid, which can then be converted to savings on your energy bill.
Stand-alone power systems consist of panels, an inverter, battery packs and generator back- ups. A stand-alone system provides you with enough power to suit your home and to be completely self-sufficient.
Both grid connect and stand-alone systems can be installed together to give you the benefits of your own power as well as getting a refund for the power you put into the grid. If you have any questions about the type of system that would work best for you, please feel free to contact Inland Solar to discuss your options.
