Frequently asked Questions
- Photovoltaic (PV) cells convert sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity.
- The charge controller charges the battery bank and also regulates the amount of charge to avoid over/under charging of the batteries.
- The inverter converts DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity needed to run your appliances assembled in your electrical panel.
- The electrical panel sends power to your lights and other appliances.

Solar Energy produces significant cost savings over petrol and diesel generators. Solar costs are fixed – it is not impacted by changes to Diesel or any other input prices.
This is one of the main reasons why solar energy is more highly suited to Nigeria than the majority of countries; she is blessed with one of the highest levels of solar radiation in the world.
So a 2kW PV system would produce between 8kW and 10kW of electricity each day, enough to power the average Nigerian household for 24 hours a day.
