Are you considering installing a photovoltaic system?
What are the elements of a Photovoltaic System?

The main elements of a photovoltaic system are:

  1. Solar panels
  2. Solar inverter or microinvertsor
  3. Assembly Structure
  4. Bidirectional meter
What are Solar Panels?

The Solar Panel or Solar Module is the device responsible for capturing the solar radiation emitted during the day to be used as electric energy.


These devices are composed of small cells of either monocrystalline or polycrystalline silicon, interconnected and encapsulated in tempered glass, converting the solar radiation that hits its surface to electrical energy through the photoelectric effect. Commercial solar panels can contain 60 or 72 cells depending on their dimensions.


EcoTip: The photoelectric effect was discovered in 1905 by A. Einstein making it a creditor of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922, and explains how photons (light particles) impact the electrons of a material giving rise to an electric current.

What is a solar inverter?

It is the device that is responsible for transforming the direct current (DC) energy generated by solar panels to AC electricity.

What is a Bidirectional Meter?

This device is responsible for recording the energy injected by the photovoltaic system directly into the electrical grid on the interconnection node (onslaught), as well as the energy demanded at CFE.

Do Solar Panels store energy?

Solar panels capture solar radiation emitted during the day to convert it into energy, but they don’t store it.
