Solar Energy Applications

Domestic solar installations involve setting up solar panels on your roof to convert sunlight into electricity. This electricity can then power your appliances, lights, and even heat your water. The system typically includes panels, an inverter (converts DC to AC electricity), and a mounting system.

Solar Energy Agricultural Applications

Agricultural solar installations harness sunlight to meet your farm's specific needs. This could involve powering water pumps for irrigation, ventilation systems for greenhouses, or even electric fences. Solar panels can also be used to directly power equipment like milking machines or grain dryers.
