Component Overview

Solar panels, the cornerstone of solar energy systems, are composed of several critical components, each playing a vital role in their functionality and efficiency. The primary components include:

  • Photovoltaic (PV) Cells: These are the heart of the solar panel, converting sunlight into electricity. They are typically made from silicon and are interconnected to form a solar panel.
  • Glass Casing: Provides durability and protection for the PV cells. It's designed to be transparent and sturdy, allowing maximum sunlight penetration while shielding the cells from environmental elements.
  • Frame: Usually made from aluminium, the frame adds structural strength to the solar panel, enabling it to withstand various weather conditions.
  • Backsheet: Located at the back of the panel, the backsheet is essential for insulation and protection from overheating and weather damage.
  • Junction Box: This component houses the electrical connections and is crucial for the safe and efficient operation of the solar panel.
  • Wiring and Connectors: Essential for transporting the electricity generated by the PV cells to the solar inverter and then into the home or grid.
  • Mounting and Fastening Components: These include brackets, mounting systems, and fastening components which secure the solar panels in place.

Solar panel installation hardware

The success of solar panel installations heavily relies on the quality and reliability of the installation hardware. This hardware plays a crucial role in ensuring that solar panels are securely mounted, aligned correctly, and connected safely. Good installation hardware must withstand various environmental factors like wind, rain, and temperature variations while maintaining the integrity and performance of the solar panels over their lifespan.

The choice of hardware affects not only the immediate installation process but also the long-term maintenance and efficiency of the solar energy system. It includes a range of components such as mounting brackets, clamps, cable management systems, and grounding equipment, each integral to the structural and electrical setup of the solar panels.

JET PRESS offers a range of solar panel fasteners and components that are easy to install, support installation and are designed to meet harsh environments.

Components for Ground Mount Systems

Ground mount solar systems are a popular alternative to rooftop installations, particularly useful in open spaces where there is ample ground area. These include solar farm installations which require specific components that differ from those used in rooftop installations, largely due to their direct exposure to ground-level environmental conditions and the need for a different mounting approach. The key components include sturdy mounting frames, foundation bases or ground anchors, adjustable tilt brackets for optimal sun exposure, and robust cable management systems. These components must ensure stability against wind and weather, support the weight of the panels, and provide ease of maintenance and accessibility. Ground mount systems also often necessitate more extensive cable management solutions, as cables run longer distances from the panels to the power systems.
