A Guide to Installing a Solar Panel System for Your Home 

If you’re looking for ways to become more sustainable, consider switching to a solar panel system for your home. Switching to solar involves going off of the electrical grid and instead getting your energy through installed solar panels in your home. You can install these panels on your roof, your yard if you have one, or even on the wall if you have permission. Here’s a guide to switching to solar energy.

What is Solar Energy?

Solar energy in Singapore is any energy gathered from the sun, usually by solar panels (or solar photovoltaics), to turn into electricity. A solar panel is made of a semiconducting material, such as silicon, that produces electricity when sunlight shines on it. Because of this, it’s considered one of the best options for renewable energy.

The Advantages of Solar Energy

  • It reduces or eliminates electric bills. While the initial solar panel installation cost can be daunting, it will quickly pay itself off in time. Solar panels typically gather more than enough energy that you’ll never have to pay an electric bill again, no matter how much energy you use in the house.
  • It provides reliable and consistent energy. The energy you get in a day depends on the weather – you may face a bright, clear day today and heavy rain the next. Even so, your solar panels will get 12 hours a day of sunlight, ensuring you’ll always have some energy to get by.
  • It is sustainable and has vast environmental benefits. Solar energy in Singapore does not emit greenhouse gases and toxic contaminants, pollute water or generate waste. It only gets power from a naturally available resource, which is sunlight. Because of this, it’s one of the best energy choices for sustainability and the environment.

How to Install a Solar Panel System

1. Finalise your plan with an engineer. 

An engineer can help you decide where and how to install the solar panel system for your home by doing a site survey of your area. They will inspect your roof to see if it’s suitable for holding solar panels and any other plausible location to ensure you get the best site.

2. Make sure you have the necessary licence. 

In Singapore, you’ll need a permit to have a roof solar panel installation of more than 1MWac. You may have to determine how many megawatts your installation will be.

3. Purchase the right equipment. 

From here, it’s time to look for the solar panels that are right for you. You’ll need to pick out the type of solar panel and battery beforehand to know what to look for, and your installer knows your intentions with the roof solar panel installation.

4. Install the Electrical Panels. 

Your preferred solar installer will install your solar panel system for your home. The installation may need to be inspected to validate the wiring and electrical work’s safety before you can turn your system on.
