Solar PV systems


Solar photovoltaic (PV) power systems work by converting sunlight directly into electricity, Photovoltaic (PV) cells or solar cells are the building block of solar Modules or solar panels, PV cells come in many sizes and shapes, from a postage stamp size to several centimetres, the absorption of sunlight by these PV Cells that generate electricity.

The PV system would typically be installed on the roof of Premises and would connect to the Premises’ LV Main Distribution Board (MDB) for purpose of connection with AADC grid.


PV systems are reliable and pollution-free, they make use of the renewable source of energy from the sun. Such systems work best in an energy-efficient building. As such, it would be sensible to firstly ensure that the overall electricity consumption in your Premises is at the optimum level by minimizing any wastage and utilising energy efficient air conditioning, lighting, appliances and before investing in a PV system.



Typically all electricity generated will be consumed internally in the first instance. In most cases, the PV generation would only offset a portion of the Premises’ power demand. If the Solar PV system supply exceeds the premises demand at any given time, then the excess electricity generated will be exported to AADC grid, AADC will then record the amount of electricity exported to its grid to deduct it from your electricity bill
