Solar Energy System:
A solar energy system is often used as an umbrella term for PV systems PV systems and solar thermal systems. Both a PV installation and a solar thermal system convert solar energy into another form of energy (electricity, heat). Essentially, the two types of plant can be subdivided according to the operating principle and the form of energy obtained. Solar thermal systems are designed to provide heat for hot water preparation or backup heating – in short: water is heated by the sun, which supplies heat energy. A PV installation produces electrical energy from sunlight, which is usually fed into the power grid via an Inverter .
