Photovoltaic systems for dwellings are typically small-scale systems that absorb sunlight and convert the energy into electricity. They are often grid connected, exporting surplus energy to the national electricity grid and allowing a dwelling to use grid energy as required.

This bulletin covers: 

  • regulatory requirements
  • solar panels and array frames and solar tiles
  • inverters
  • system size and generation capacity
