Duncan Kerr's Electrical team are very experienced when it comes to Solar Power installations and have installed solar systems for private & commercial customers and green energy suppliers alike.

The company is a Level 2 Service Provider which enables them to assist their clients with installing the solar panels and new meter at the same time. This saves their clients the inconvenience of requiring two seperate professionals to complete the solar installation.

How it works

Solar panels collect UV rays from the sun and convert that energy into DC electricity. The grid connect inverter converts the DC electricity produced by the solar panels into 240V AC electricity, which can then be used by the property/household. If a grid connect system is producing more power than is being consumed the surplus is fed into the mains power grid. When the solar cells are not producing power, for example at night, your power is supplied by the mains power grid as usual.

Installation

Most customers choose a roof mounted solar system. For Australia, the modules should be north facing in order to take full advantage of the sun. Our accredited grid connect installers will aim to install the modules at an angle which ensures that the glass face of the modules is positioned to maximise the exposure to the sun for most of the day.
