General knowledge of PV arrives on time, let’s know more about PV system with Beebeejump~
Q1: Can I use photovoltaics (PV) to power my home?
A: PV can be used to power your entire home’s electrical systems, including lights, cooling systems, and appliances. PV systems today can be blended easily into both typical and atypical homes. The most common practice is to mount modules onto a south-facing roof or wall. For an additional aesthetic appeal, some modules resemble traditional roof shingles.
Q2: How big a solar energy system do I need?
A: The size of solar system you need depends on several factors such as how much electricity you need (load profile) and how many hours of the day (run time) you want it to supply electricity, the size of roof/ground space available and how much you’re willing to invest. Furthermore, your consideration on whether you want the system to supply your complete energy usage or to supplant a portion of your higher cost energy usage is also a major point of consideration.
Q3: What are the differences between a Roof-mounted and ground-mounted PV system?
A: Roof-mounted tends to be less expensive as they require no support structures and are most often not visible to passersby. On the other hand, ground-mounted systems can usually be oriented and tilted to optimize production. The choice of which mounting type you need also depend on the kind of structures/obstructions you have in your vicinity.
