How it works
As with all Astrum Energy products, our solar systems are comprised of premium quality hardware sourced from leading brands, and come with maintenance support and warranties.
Components of Solar System
The solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity throughout the day.
The MPPT charge controller continuously tracks at maximum the solar panels’ energy production and ensures that the battery bank is charged and maintained properly. It will ensure maximum output from panels as well as guide against over / under charging of the battery bank.
This is the storage tank, designed to store the excess power produced by the panels during the day, and to provide power during the periods of low energy production and at night when the solar is not making power at all
This device converts the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into the alternating current (AC) electricity.
The AC electricity is sent from the inverter to your electrical panel to power your lights and appliances with solar energy. The electrical panel is often called a "breaker box."
The energy meter measures your energy use. It shows your system status at any time for both power production and storage, with good user interface.
