How does solar work?

A residential solar photovoltaic (PV) system is a rooftop generator that converts energy from the sun into electricity that you can use in your home. High quality photovoltaic cells are manufactured together to form solar panels. The direct current generated by the solar panels is converted into alternating current by the power inverter and can be utilised directly within your house or exported back to the grid. 

We only partner with leading solar brands

We have built strong relationships with some of the best brands on the market. This ensures our clients receive not only the best performing products, but also continued support in the unlikely scenario where they have an issue with their solar installation.
