we would like to introduce you to our German technology partners...
Each module (panel) generally consists of around 72 silicon cells which are
strung together within each module. Each cell is joined in series meaning it is
very important that every connection between cells is of the highest quality, as
the power output of a module is only as strong as its weakest connection. Also important
is that the strings never get wet or moist. Over time moist strings and/or poor
connections will render a module unproductive thus dramatically reducing the yield
of your investment. Our module manufactures Schott and SolarWorld are consistently
cited as world leaders in module production. Like most module manufactures they
both provide 25 year warranties. Most importantly Schott and SolarWorld can stand
behind every warranty certificate they issue. Both companies have strong
balance sheets and vertically integrated supply chains. This means they can control
quality at every stage in the production of your modules.
The inverters are the brain of the system, they serve two main purposes.
Firstly they convert DC electricity into AC electricity for use in the home/grid.
With the processing power of 5 computers your inverters use what is called a maximum
power point tracker (or MPPT), this enables you to harvest maximum power from your
modules by taking into account changes in temperature, irradiance(sunlight), and
shading every second of the day. In 1981 SMA manufactured the world's first solar
inverter and almost 30 years on it dominates the global market. This dominance is
founded on research, design and quality manufacturing. Galvanic isolation means
SMA inverters can be connected to the most complicated power grid configurations.
This is especially important in Perth where the power grid is coming under pressure
from rapid urban development.
A mounting frame from Schletter will hold your PV plant in place rain, hail,
wind or snow. Schletter's market leading light weight designs are cyclone rated
and come with a 10 year durability warranty. With our wide range of components
we can design mounting systems for the most challenging roof and building types.
This means you can take advantage today without expensive renovations.
