How To Connect Solar Panels To My House’s Electricity?
Solar panels can be expensive if you are thinking about converting your home over to this form of electricity. You will have to purchase several panels in order to produce enough electricity for everything in your home. If funds are tight right now there is still a way for you to benefit from using the solar panels. Instead of purchasing a whole lot of panels at first you can actually purchase just a couple of them. Once the solar panels have been purchased, you can then wire the panels into your house electricity to help lower your bill each month.
Connecting solar panels to your house electricity depends on five factors and they are:-
4. Fuse box
Solar panels would prove to be the way to save you money and supply your home with the electricity when properly installed.
Following the below instructions will help you connect solar panels to your house electricity appropriately:-
• Measure the space on your roof so you know how much space is available for you to work with. It is best to install the solar panels on your roof so they get direct sun and are out of the way. In order to see a difference in the utility bill you will need to install at least 20 solar panels that are at least 250 watts.
• Installing batteries for the solar panels is best if you no longer want to use the electricity that the city sells you each month. The batteries are charged by the solar panels during the day so you can use the electricity during the night when the sun has gone down.
• Connect your solar panels to an inverter so the electricity can be converted over properly. Your home actually runs on what is called AC power. The converter is able to take the DC power that the solar panels collect and turn it into the usable AC power for your home.
• Locate the fuse box in your home and connect the inverter to it. This will give instant power to different items around your home through the outlets in your walls.
• Install the generator for AC by your inverter then connect the two. You will probably not need the generator much but it is nice to have if you have a cloudy day all day and the solar panels were not able to make the desired electricity.
