AWPS Renewable Energy Ltd has made some truly remarkable discoveries in providing premium quality solar power, and one extremely important lesson has been the importance of grounding our solar power systems. This is why we are different from every other competitor out there. We have installed and commissioned over 60 solar power projects in 13 states and the F.C.T. Apart from the quality inverters and batteries we offer for our installations, another reason why all our installations are performing wonderfully well in your state or area is because we earth them.
Electricity has provided countless benefits to people, but it remains one of the deadliest elements readily available in our daily lives. Unless you have already grounded your systems, you are taking a rather large risk by not doing so.
In an electrical circuit, there is what’s known as an active wire, which supplies the power, and a neutral wire, which carries that current back. An extra ‘grounding wire’ can be attached to outlets and other electrical devices and securely connected to the ground at the breaker box. This ground wire is an additional path for electric current to return safely to the ground without danger to anyone in the event of a short circuit.
Our systems are installed in such a way that If a short circuit did occur, the current would flow through the ground wire, causing a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker – an outcome much preferable than the fatal shock that could result if the current was not grounded.
Here are 5 main reasons why we ground our solar power systems
One of the most important reasons we ground our systems is that it protects your appliances, your home and everyone in it from surges in electricity. If lightning was to strike or the power was to surge at your place for whatever reason, this produces dangerously high voltages of electricity in your system. If your electrical system is grounded, all that excess electricity will go into the earth — rather than frying everything connected to your system
Having your solar power system grounded means you will be making it easy for power to be directed straight to wherever you need it, allowing electrical currents to safely and efficiently travel throughout your electrical system.
A grounded solar power system also makes it easier for the right amount of power to be distributed to all the right places, which can play a huge role in helping to ensure circuits aren’t overloaded and blown. The earth provides a common reference point for the many voltage sources in an electrical system.
Another reason why we ground our systems is to keep you safe because the earth is such a great conductor, and because excess electricity will always take the path of least resistance. By grounding your electrical system, you are giving it somewhere to go other than into you – possibly saving your life.
Without a properly grounded solar power systems, you are risking any appliances you have connected to your system being fried beyond repair. In the worst-case scenario, an overload of power can even cause a fire to start, risking not just extensive property and data loss but physical injury as well.
Grounding your solar system is a smart and easy way to make it a lot safer, as well as to protect against the very real possibility of having to deal with fluctuations in power supply. If you want to safeguard all your important assets, whether at home or at the office, as well as look out for the health and safety of everyone around you, find out if your solar power system is grounded and if it is not, you can contact AWPS Renewable Energy Ltd, Nigeria’s #1 provider of premium quality for a professionally designed solar power system for your home and business.
