Solar energy and Inverters is now the best option in most of the countries that have power problem solar energy and power, inverters have become an alternative to keep your businesses going, I hospitals, churches, schools and many of them now use one inverter or the other to run their business when the main light goes off.

Many of have been hearing more about Solar energy, inverters and so on but I will tell you more about all this solar energy and inverter, how they work and what you need to set it up

Why do you need an inverter or solar energy as you may call it

I am sure you have your answers but the truth is that some businesses can not work or succeed without electricity and since the power source is not constant what you need to do it to look for an alternative to keep your business going.

I have one myself not actually to watch movies or to play video games but my work demand constant electricity for more to work conveniently and uninterrupted and that is why I went for solar energy.

What is power Inverter?

A power inverter, or inverter, is an electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). The input voltage, output voltage and frequency, and overall power handling depend on the design of the specific device or circuitry.

What is Solar Energy?

Solar energy is energy provided by the sun and this energy is in the form of solar radiation, which makes the production of solar electricity possible

Now before we proceed I want to be sure that you understand what is Inverter and solar energy so that you will be following this guide accordingly.

How can I set up power Inverter and solar energy?

first before thinking of setting up an inverter solar system there few things you must consider, through the questions about what is inverter and solar energy you have understood clearly that inverter converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) while Solar energy is energy provided by the sun.

2 Main Types of power generation in Nigeria

Yes, I want you to know this, you can generate power from the sun (Solar energy) and the main power source like in Nigeria (NEPA, PHCN), etc and I will tell you how it works.

Questions you need to ask yourself before setting up an Inverter

* Do you need an inverter that you can just use with you current power source (NEPA PHCN) or with Solar energy.

* How many Megawatts do I need in terms of loads it can handle.

* How much will it cost me to get all the materials to need.

* How to install it, keep reading you can even buy it and it will be installed for you for free and I will suggest you where to find reliable sellers that will install it for you.

To answer a few of your questions inverter/solar energy is not cheap especially in Nigeria but not as well so expensive that you can’t afford it.

How much you spent depends on the megawatts you needed to carry your electrical appliances but if you needed an inverter for your work then it might not cost you much.

All the Materials Needed

Now, this is the most important part of this tutorial as am going to tell you more about the things you need to have before you can be able to set up an inverter and solar energy.

Setting up Solar Energy

Well, I might not include wires but many of them will come with other materials you need and when you need extra wires your installer can help you.

Let me explain the works of the above solar inverter materials above for you to understand more clearly.

Solar Panel

With the help of solar panel above you can be able to draw energy from the sun and sends it to either indoor solar unit or all in one inverter to convert it.

Inverter solar controller unit machine

There are many types of Inverter solar controller machine in the market and it all depends on what you want.

The solar panel will be connected directly to the Inverter solar controller machine box to convert and handle the output.

Inverter solar controller machine handles the input and output of the power in the sense that you connect the solar panel to the Inverter solar controller machine and it will convert the energy and sends it out.

Some all in one  Inverter solar controller unit machine can charge with (NEPA, PHCN) and at the same time charge with the solar panel mounted on top of your roof and then charged the batteries.

High-quality solar batteries

On this part the battery installs the power for future usage, the Inverter solar controller unit machine handles the charging of the batteries and supplies of the powers for final usage.

To make it more simple

mount your solar panel outside your house where there is the sun connect it to your Inverter solar controller unit machine and if you have the one that can charge with NEPA, PHCN then connect it too to the Inverter solar controller unit machine, then connect Inverter solar controller unit machine to the batteries to charge by the Inverter solar controller unit.

The Inverter solar controller unit machine will control the charging of the batteries and handle the supplies of the generated energy for final use, it can equally automatically handle the change over between the solar and NEPA, PHCN when there is light.

How to get this solar equipment materials and how much will it cost

You can buy online now and it will be installed for free for you and no need to stress yourself looking for an installer
