A solar power system is made up of the following components:
- Solar panels– the most important part of the system and makes up the majority of the cost of the system.
- Inverter– converts DC electricity generated at the panels into 240V AC power which can be used in your home or exported to the grid.
- Mounting system– physically connects the solar panels to your roof.
- Electrical components– includes cables, isolators, breakers and switches. (sometimes referred to as the “Balance of System”).
