What is Solar?

The term 'Solar Panel' refers to a panel designed to absorb the sun's rays as a source of energy for generating electricity or heating. The technology, although being anything but new, has seen some of the most progressive advancement of any industry in recent years, this has made effective Solar Systems much easier to both install and implement on residential and commercial levels. Photovoltaic Solar Panels - the most common solar panels in use today - are generally made up of wafer-based crystalline silicon cells, with others being constructed of thin-film cells based on cadmium telluride or silicon. The structural member of a module can either be the top or back layer. Due the necessary protections for the cells from mechanical damage, most solar panels are constructed using a rigid material, however more pliable and flexible solar solutions have started to make their way into the market in recent years.

Solar Makes Sense...

The Riverland Region - the birthplace of Yates Electrical Services - has one of the highest rates of luminance in the world. So high in fact, out of 365 days per year, the Riverland enjoys on average over 274 days of sunshine. This makes the Riverland a perfect destination when it comes to installing personal solar systems. Yates Electrical Services have been providing high quality solar installations across the Riverland since 2004, having now installed well over 1000 systems across the region and using only the best quality components from SMA, you can be sure that your system will be installed with the greatest care, and last for many years. 

The long term benefits of installing a quality solar system on your home extend well beyond simple power saving costs. Solar energy is not only sustainable, it is a renewable energy resource, and will be available to you for as long as our sun continues to shine. No other renewable energy resource is as cost effective or abundantly available to the public as personal solar installations.

As solar panels have no moving parts, there are very few fail points, this means that a correctly installed and quality fitted installation will last for years with only the bare minimum of maintenance requirements.

The technology in the solar farming sector is constantly improving, with advancements like batteries, PV panels and SMA's brand of invertors, the efficiency of solar technology is always increasing. This not only makes the technology much more accessible, but also considerably more affordable.
