Types of Solar Batteries and How To Choose The Right One

A solar battery is a storage unit that holds excess, unutilised electrical power generated by solar panels. More than one unit – a battery bank – is often required to function effectively as solar storage. Solar batteries are usually used for off-grid solar installations and hybrid solar systems. However, they are also used in some grid-tied solar power systems. The market is now flooded with

Understanding Power Optimizers

A power optimizer or solar optimizer is an electrical component that can be added into a solar power system. It is not a type of solar inverter, as it is often misunderstood to be. Instead, it is considered a kind of module-level power electronic (MLPE).

Types of Solar Inverters

The primary role of a solar inverter is to convert direct current (DC) produced by solar panels into appliance-friendly alternating current (AC) electricity. However, its role has expanded over the years, particularly with the development of newer and more complex types of solar inverters. There

What Is BIPV?

BIPV stands for ‘building-integrated photovoltaics.’ In other words, BIPV is about the integration of photovoltaics or solar technology in buildings, whereby PV elements become an integral part of permanent structures.  The trend of BIPV is still at the cusp of the built environment and construction

BIPV Future Prospects And Current Challenges

Building Integrated Photovoltaics, or BIPV, is a form of photovoltaic technology where solar panels are incorporated into parts of a building. The PV panels serve the dual purpose of generating electricity while serving the functions of those parts. BIPV is not a brand new solar
