How Do Commercial Solar Panels (SPV) Work?

Commercial solar panels, also known as solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, harness the sun’s energy to generate electricity. Here are the basic steps of how commercial solar PV systems work:

Sunlight Exposure: SPV systems are installed on the roof of your business or on open ground in a location with direct exposure to sunlight. 

Photovoltaic Effect: Sunlight, which is composed of photons, hits the solar panels, it interacts with the semiconductor material (usually silicon) in the solar cells. This interaction releases electrons from the atoms, generating an electric current.

Direct Current (DC) Generation: The electrons create a flow of electric current in the form of direct current (DC). However, most commercial electrical systems use alternating current (AC). Therefore, an inverter is used to convert the DC generated by the solar panels into AC.

Inverter Conversion: The inverter is a very important component that converts the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into the AC electricity used in buildings and on the grid. This makes the electricity compatible with appliances within your business.

Building Consumption: The AC electricity is then used to power the electrical appliances and equipment within your business. Any excess electricity that is not immediately used is typically fed back into the grid.

Net Metering or Feed-in Tariffs: In many locations, commercial buildings with solar panels are connected to the electrical grid. Through net metering or feed-in tariffs, excess electricity can be fed back into the grid, and the building owner may receive credits or compensation for the surplus energy that they generate.

Energy Storage (Optional): Some commercial solar panel systems incorporate energy storage options, such as batteries. This allows the excess energy generated during peak sunlight hours to be stored for later use, during periods of low sunlight or high energy usage.

Grid Interaction: When a commercial building requires more electricity than the solar panels are producing (e.g., during nighttime), it draws electricity from the grid. This seamless interaction ensures a continuous and reliable power supply.

By following these steps, commercial solar panels efficiently convert sunlight into usable electricity, providing a sustainable and cost-effective energy solution for your business.

Frequently Asked Questions Commercial Solar Panels (SPV FAQ’s)

Q1: How do commercial solar panels work?

A: Commercial solar panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) systems, convert sunlight into electricity. The panels contain semiconductor materials that generate a flow of direct current (DC) electricity when exposed to sunlight. This DC electricity is then converted into alternating current (AC) by an inverter, making it useable for the electrical systems of commercial buildings.

Q2: What are the benefits of installing SPV?

A: Installing commercial solar PV offers many benefits, including savings on electricity bills, a lower carbon footprint, potential income from excess energy generation (through feed-in tariffs), and enhanced corporate sustainability.

Q3: How much space is needed for commercial solar panels?

A: The space required depends on the size and efficiency of the SPV system, as well as the energy needs of your business. Generally, solar PV is installed on rooftops, car parks, or open ground areas.

Q4: What is the lifespan of commercial solar PV?

A: Solar panels typically have a lifespan of 25 to 30 years or more. Their efficiency may gradually decrease over time, but with regular maintenance, you can help maintain their efficiency.

Q5: What is the return on investment (ROI) for commercial solar panels?

A: The ROI for commercial solar PV systems varies based on factors such as system size, energy consumption, local sunlight conditions, and available incentives. Many businesses experience a positive ROI within 3 to 7 years.
