The desire for sustainable solar energy is growing in its intensity among South Africans ready to take the future into their own hands. Solar energy is undeniably the way forward for anyone wanting to have access to energy that they are able to generate almost on demand.
In a country like South Africa, with its many sunny days, if you have a full solar system, complete with enough batteries to store the power, you should be in a comfortable position to never again have to worry about being left in the dark.
We have an extensive range of solar combiner boxes for sale at competitive prices to help you set up a system that suits your needs.
At Africa Power Equipment, we are committed to making sure that our clients have all of the products and devices necessary to run a fully functional solar power system that will not only give them reliable access to power, but which will without a doubt become a highly valuable and much treasured investment. We not only source numerous solar products from the best brands, but we also go above and beyond to make sure that our clients have the information that they need in order to make the best possible decision about their purchase.
With solar power becoming one of those things that more South Africans can afford to have access to, buying everything you need to set up a working and reliable solar system is neither far-fetched nor too expensive. There are many ways that you can get your system set up and the easiest of which is to just buy a solar kit. This type of system comes with everything you need and it will allow you to quickly set the system up to generate a specific amount of power.
The downside of opting for a solar kit is that it won’t allow you to customise the system and it also often will not allow you to expand the energy generation options. This means that the system you buy is the system that you will end up using for the long run.
Solar combiner boxes are one of the parts of a solar system that can be customised to suit your unique needs and to perhaps make way for more energy generation should you need it.
When you think of the solar system, the solar combiner box is not likely to be one of the devices that will come to mind. This is because it is not spoken of in the same way as the solar panels, solar batteries and solar inverters, which are common place in the solar world.
And yet, a solar combiner box is just as important as the other bits and pieces of the system, depending on what your needs are.
A solar combiner box serves a very specific purpose. This gadget is designed to combine the output of various solar strings. With each string conductor sitting on a fuse terminal and the outputs of the fused terminal combined on a conductor, the combiner is then connected to the inverter, so that energy conducted by the solar panels can be safely used within the home.
The combiner box is that not so simple setup that serves a very useful purpose. Once you have this box fit into your solar set up, you can quite easily start customising your solar system and even ensure that the system is capable of including many features.
The solar box is also used to consolidate all of the incoming power into a main feed which can then distribute the energy to the solar inverter. By using this device, you can save time and money as you will be using fewer resources to get the most out of your solar system.
Within the solar system, the combiner box is designed to sit between the inverter and the solar modules. It is important that the combiner box is correctly fit so that it will not only function perfectly, but so that it can also play an active role in limiting the loss of power.
The position of the combiner box will also possibly have an effect on the price.
Another thing to think about when you are buying your combiner box is the quality of the box. As this feature sits as an in between feature within the system, you will want to be certain that the combiner is able to function for a long period of time without needing replacing or maintenance of any kind.
Luckily, for the most part, these solar products are not really that expensive, but if you were to opt for a box that is of inferior quality, it can end up breaking the rest of the system, as it can quite literally go up in smoke.
Given the fact that the solar industry has become a very big one, there are many solar installation experts out there who will be able to help you get up and running. That being said, if you are looking to DIY the installation of your system, it is not impossible to do on your own.
When choosing your box you will want to make sure that the one you’ve chosen is simple when it comes to installation. Ideally, you can opt for a pre-wired fuse holder that comes out far enough to be easily plugged in when you want to get it connected.
By selecting a system like this, you will be able to get connected without the system needing to be tweaked by an electrician. And when you set things up yourself, you can again save money and time.
At Africa Power Equipment we have a wide range of some of the best solar combiner boxes in South Africa and we go above and beyond to make sure that you have access to affordable solar solutions. Our products are easy to get to grips with and can easily be integrated into a variety of solar installations.
