How does solar Energy work in Wellington?

The key ingredient in a solar energy system are photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. These panels are designed to absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity.


The solar panels Wiretec Electrical install in Wellington and Kapiti are specified high wattage solar panels specially designed to capture even the faintest rays of sunlight, making them highly efficient on Wellingtons cloudy days. 


When sunlight strikes the surface of the solar panels, it excites the electrons in the semiconductor material, typically made of silicon. This excitation creates a flow of electrons, generating direct current (DC) electricity.


Wellingtons sunlight ensures that solar panels can consistently produce a substantial amount of clean energy.

The electricity produced by solar panels is in the form of DC current, while most homes and businesses in Wellington use alternating current (AC).


To make the solar energy usable, solar inverters are employed to convert DC into AC. These inverters are essential components that ensure the energy produced can power household appliances and be fed back into the grid.

Inverters can come in the shape of micro inverters (attached to the solar panel) or wall mounted inverters that have the ability to accept batteries, either straight away or in the future. 

For those seeking to enhance their solar energy systems further, energy storage solutions are gaining popularity in Wellington.


Solar batteries can store excess energy generated during the day for use during periods of low sunlight or peak energy demand, providing greater energy independence and resilience.


Batteries and hybrid inverts give the ability to install back up circuits at times of power cuts and grid downtime.

One significant advantage of solar power in Wellington is when solar panels produce more electricity than needed, the excess energy can be fed back into the grid. This process allows consumers to earn credits, reducing their overall energy bills and contributing to the city's sustainable energy goals.
