How it works

What is solar? 

Solar takes advantage of a free and powerful energy source – the sun.

In a single hour, the sun transmits more energy to the earth's surface than the world uses in a year.

Solar converts this energy into electricity, making it a simple, clean and cost-effective way to power our lives. It’s dependable, too – because, unlike fossil fuels, the sun’s energy is unlimited.

Just imagine what that could do for your wallet, your bottom line and the environment.

What are solar panels?

Placed on roofs or on the ground, solar panels capture the sunlight and convert it into electricity.

And you don’t need to live somewhere warm and sunny, because solar needs only light not heat. Even the UK gets 60% of the sunlight (or solar radiation) found at the Equator.

It’s true that the more light the panels receive, the more electricity they can generate. But they still work on cloudy days – just as a solar-powered calculator does.

Their full name is solar photovoltaic panels, or PV. (“Photo” means “light” and “volts” means electricity.) At Tesla Energy Afghanistan, we usually just say “solar” for short.

You’ve probably seen solar panels on roofs, or maybe on the ground. The panels are frames made up of solar PV cells (these are layers of monocrystalline or polycrystalline silicon):

  • The sun’s radiation hits these cells and is converted to direct current (DC) energy

  • This DC energy travels to an electrical device called an inverter, which converts DC energy into alternating current (AC) energy

  • The AC electricity produced is just like the power supplied by your utility company, and can go directly to power things like computers and lights

  • Or the power produced can be exported back to the mains national electricity grid and get redistributed around the country

What is the main difference between the Tesla Solar PV product and other product available on the market? 

First of all, it is important to understand that a Solar PV System is not a short term investment no matter the type of project ie. residential, business or government projects. Unfortunately, many consumers in Afghanistan are focusing on the price tag and business using this opportunity to sell low-quality solar products such as the battery, inverters and solar PV modules as they make good profits while knowing the system will stop working in max. 1-2 years if not sooner.

Therefore, Most of the companies today using the lowest quality products that come only with 1-2 year warranty and to some extend there are also second-hand or refurbished products offered on the market which surely isn't right to invest in.

The main reason why you should consider Tesla's products are the followings:

  • We work directly with the manufacturers in Germany, Austria and Italy so there aren't any middlemen involved hence the low price 

  • All Tesla's product comes with manufacturer warranty and they all go through a quality inspection before leaving the manufacturing

  • Tesla provides after-sales service which means you can always talk to sales and customer service when you have a question 

  • We work with leading manufacturers in the world who are in the business for over 100 years. This assures you not only that your products are manufactured with the highest quality but also that even after your warranty period you still have access to spare parts. 

  • When you buy products from Tesla you always have the same right as a consumer as you would buy it from Europe or US
