A solar inverter that produces pure sine wave is suited for homes that require an optimum performance for appliances such as TVs, computers and stereos. A modified sine wave solar inverter is cheaper and can run most appliances.
A Solar Controller ensures proper heat transfer from the solar collectors to the hot water storage unit. There are two basic types: the differential solar controller and the photovoltaic-powered solar controller.
Most people have heard of solar panels, but not everyone understands how solar panels work. Solar panels work to harness the sun's energy and to convert light into electric current through a process called the photovoltaic effect.
