In Australia, the cost of solar panels has greatly reduced in recent years and its technology continue to advance. Solar Panels represent the most reliable, low cost and low maintenance source of energy for off-grid and grid connected solar power systems. Solar modules are typically mounted on the roof or ground mounted frames to convert sunlight into electricity (DC). An inverter then converts the DC electricity into common alternating current (AC) electricity. This can then be used to either power appliances directly, or charge storage batteries for use at night.
The effectiveness of solar panels depends on various factors such as the location they are installed, weather, angle and if there are any shaded areas. North-facing is commonly the best direction where no trees or shading occurs.
