Solar Farm Components

Solar Farm Components
  • 02. Inverters

    The power from the solar panels is sent to an inverter. These inverters convert DC Power to AC Power which is the standard form of electricity in Ireland.

  • 03. Swithcboard

    The electricity from the inverter travels to the switchboard for transfer into the utility provider.

  • 04. Electricity Meter

    The electricity meter receives the electricity from the switchboard, measures the amount and then sells the electricity to the grid.

  • 05. Electricity Grid

    The electricity grid simply refers to the electricity providers network, the electricity you sell back to the grid is then used by other customers.
