How To Maximize Free Energy From Solar Panels For Your Home Or Business?

How To Maximize Free Energy From Solar Panels For Your Home Or Business? 2300 1533 Sunlux

There are many ways to catch the sun, but only one to maximizes its utilization! Solar panel installation is a long-term commitment, due to its lifespan of 25 years working with nominal capacity. Although we are testifying the benefits of using photovoltaic systems in total electricity production, we must remove all doubts that we will accomplish the maximum potential of the solar panel installation. And this is SunLux Solar primary goal at the beginning of each project. Using the latest technology in planning the installation of solar panels we bring you the fastest return of investment! 

What Are The Benefits Of Carefully Calculated Data For A Solar Power System?

The quality solar panel system requires proper planning. The amount of solar energy that passes the atmosphere and reaches the surface of the planet is measurable and depends on the latitude, season, time of day and weather conditions. When planning the installation of solar panels, our specialists are using “Solmetric SunEye – 210” shade tool to get all the data which closely determine the utilization of solar energy at residential or commercial location. 

This “all in one” tool gives us accurate data: 

  • Annual sun path
  • Monthly solar access
  • Weather data of the site
  • Possibility of shading obstructions

Additional features from this tool, such as electronic inclinometer, electronic compass and integrated GPS show very precise data that is unique to each location individually. With all of this data, our professionals can easily estimate and properly inform you about the maximum amount of free electricity you can get from a solar power system!

From Data To The Ultimate Solar Utility!

The movement of a planet around its axis and around the sun causes the intensity of radiation to change on daily, monthly and annual bases, but we can easily process all these information and show you the exact potential of your location. Why is this so important to know? Well, even we know that the surface which receives the energy of solar radiation is not always horizontal (which would be an ideal case), knowing the annual sun path and weather data for one location is essential in order to increase the exploitation of solar panels.

For example, knowing the average number of equivalent sunny hours for each month of the year is particularly of importance when designing the off-grid system, in order to ensure the constant supply of electricity, even in periods with a low number of sunny hours. For on-grid systems, we calculate average daily, monthly and annual solar radiation and take it as a reference, so the projected solar panel installation would make the biggest savings for investors.

The possibility of shading obstruction on the location sometimes can be overlooked, because the shadow path changes along with the seasons, depending on the position of the sun on the horizon. Shadow cast can significantly diminish the output of the solar power system, even if it appears on just one part of the solar panel. 

But, if we know all yearly parameters of solar orbit, and applying them to the selected location we can easily know if the planned solar panels will be in the shadow at some moment during the calendar year. With careful evaluating, this potential problem can be totally eliminated!   

Our Business Is Making Your Ideas, Possible!

When it comes to solar, more efficiency means a faster return on investment and great savings. Our professionals can immediately provide you with relevant information on each unique location and use those data in order to increase the possibility of exploitation of the photovoltaic system. With the right technology and innovative processes maximized efficiency becomes reality. With SunLux you can achieve the greatest potential!
