Frequently asked questions

What is a off grid solar system work and how does it work?

Off-grid simply means that you’re no longer connected to the main power grid supplied by power plants. Off-grid solar refers to an independent solar power module that can fulfil the power needs of your home without tapping into any networked power grids. Off-grids are rising in popularity, as the cost of installing solar panels is falling. How Does It Work? The system consists of an array of solar panels, which absorbs sunrays to convert them into electricity. The number and area of the panels depends on the amount of electricity required to be produced. The panel rating needs to be selected based on a number of other factors, such as loses in the system, the capacity factor and changing weather conditions. The electricity produced by the panel is then stored in a battery, which can then be used when you need it.

What is a Lumen?

Lumens (lm) are a measure of the amount of light which is visible to the human eye from a lamp or light source. The higher the lumen rating, the brighter the lamp will appear. So to take the guess work out of how bright a light will be the table below gives a rough guide in the relation between Lumens and Watts
