Are you planning to buy a new inverter or upgrade your old one? Whatever maybe the reason, it is very important to understand what is the right inverter for your home. The power requirement at your home can be different from you neighbor’s home. So do not just blindly install the same inverter (in terms of power) in your home. Before buying an inverter for your home do a little homework and understand the basics.
A battery is a vital part of an inverter. The performance of an inverter largely depends on its battery. Regular care and maintenance of batteries keep them in good shape for a longer time period.
There are several reasons behind the failure of inverter batteries earlier than expected.
Battery is the backbone of an inverter. It is responsible for the good performance and long life of your inverter. Therefore regular maintenance and care of the battery is very crucial. Just like any other home appliance your inverter and its battery require regular maintenance for effective operation and longer life.
Solar farms are just big fields covered with conductive material. They’re almost asking for a lightning strike, which can damage or destroy solar panels, inverters and other critical equipment. So it’s no surprise that lightning activity and surge-related over-voltage abnormalities are identified as leading causes of solar project downtime.

oiling summer is just few weeks ahead, scheduled and unscheduled power cuts are expected as usual. Inverters are one of the most demanded products of summer season. Are you planning to buy or upgrade your inverter in this season? Then instead of being trapped in the marketing gimmicks, understand some basic facts and do a little bit home work. Here some facts you must know before buying an inverter inverter Calculate your power requirements
I have already written about why it doesn’t make sense to pay people to clean your solar panels. I also wrote it doesn’t make a lot of sense to clean them yourself. Once you add in the value of your time, the chance of falling off the roof and killing yourself, and how cleaning panels usually only adds a couple of percent to their average output, it is not really worth it.
Tons of emissions and thousands of dollars can be saved with passive and active solar thermal systems.
Passive Solar means the system works without pumps or other equipment. An example of this system is a south facing window that allows sunlight to heat an adobe wall in the winter.
PV: Photo-Voltaic means electricity from light.
Basically, there are three major types of solar cells:
