With the rising popularity of solar energy, many have turned their heads and shown interest in renewable energy. Although, there are still a lot of questions surrounding the solar panel equipment, like how they operate, the names, and what each part is used for. If you have the same worries, don’t worry. We are here to explain some of the solar terms you may have heard before. 





Yes, solar panels are basically the dark blue panels that you normally see attached on top of the roof. Exposed to the sun, they absorb sunlight through their solar cells (photovoltaic cells). The absorbed sunlight will then be converted into Direct Current (DC) electricity. Solar panels need to be kept clean, clear of debris and durable to perform their job well. Therefore, it is important to find a solar installer that provides quality solar panels that can guarantee its product. At UNIfied Energy, we offer a 12-year product warranty and a 25-year performance guarantee, along with a 5-year warranty on our workmanship.




Next, inverters. The term solar inverters may be less known than solar panels themselves but it plays a significant role in the solar system to work. In order to work, your home appliances need electricity in the form of an Alternating Current (AC). Now, remember, what the solar panels have is DC and not AC. Thus, this is where the solar inverters come and help turn DC into AC, converting the power for use in your home. 


Battery Systems



Lastly, the battery storage. As you may have guessed, the energy produced by sonal panel is stored in the battery. This energy is used by the system if the solar panels don’t generate enough energy in a day. This way, you can be rest assured that you’ll not run out of energy to power your house and rely less on the electricity grid. 

At UNIfied, we provide these products with high quality and exceptional service. We are here to ensure you can get the best out of your solar installation and pay less for your electricity bills.
