Choosing the Right Solar Panel Array for Your Needs
Considering the size of the system you intend to be powering, you may need a number of solar panels with a higher wattage to keep up with the power demand. We supply everything from 5 watt to 350 watt solar panels & custom build frames to carry multiple panels. If you have multiple systems which require powering, these frames can be connected to increase your intake of energy.
What happens on a cloudy day?
As you can imagine, our panels cannot collect much sunlight during the dead of night or on a heavily cloudy days. This is why we advise most of our customers to install a larger array than they possibly need, ensuring that the sunlight provides adequate energy throughout the peak hours of the day & maintains enough power for those cloudy periods.Choosing a 250 watt panel may be more expensive and take up more space, but it will pay itself off in the long run by providing more solar energy and ensuring your pumping system is always up & running.
Position is key
It is critical when installing your solar panels to have them setup in the best position to ensure they receive the maximum amount of sunlight. Speak with our professional installers to discuss the best positioning of your panel arrays. For example, having your panels on a 20 degree angle will ensure the most power retention, a ground mounted system is the best means of doing this but the are alernatives of mounting the panels on old wind mill frames, tank tops or a convenient building roof. For Australia all panels deliver their best performance facing directly north. The solar panel angle can vary dependent on your location & what time of the year you want to achieve maximum performance from your solar panels. Call us if you want to check this.
