French scientist Edmond Becquerel discovers the photovoltaic effect while experimenting with an electrolytic cell made up of two metal electrodes placed in an electricity-conducting solution—electricity-generation increased when exposed to light. His dream was to cover houses with solar panels to generate power for the household. In 1954 photovoltaic technology is born in the United States when Daryl Chapin, Calvin Fuller, and Gerald Pearson develop the silicon photovoltaic (PV) cell with 6% efficiency at Bell Labs — the first solar cell capable of converting enough of the sun's energy into power to run everyday electrical equipment.

Why do I need a solar panel system?

Solar panels produce electricity from solar radiation. The system transforms the direct current thus obtained into alternating current through the use of an inverter, which can be used directly for operating any standard electrical equipment. It generates renewable and clean energy and is an eco-friendly device, unlike solutions that use coal and other fossil fuels. There are no moving parts, it is extremely reliable and has an expected lifespan of several decades. It is easy to install and the maintenance costs are minimal.

Let's do what we can to ensure a sustainable life by applying a technology and using a system which, in addition to using renewable energy sources, will produce significant savings! Rid yourself of ever-increasing electricity costs!

The core components of a grid connect solar power system are the panels, inverter and mounting system. External to the system is the meter, which must also be compatible with the system.

There are two main types of solar power system based on whether they are connected to the grid or not.

The grid connect installation ensures you have the electricity you need, whenever you need it - automatically and regardless of weather conditions.

An off grid solar power system is completely separated from mains power and is more expensive as it utilizes a battery bank for storing electricity generated by solar panels. Off grid installations are most common in rural of Hungary where the mains grid isn’t available or prohibitively expensive to connect to. It also requires maintenance, as the batteries have to be replaced in every 5-6 years.


Ask friends, family, neighbours or colleagues who have had solar systems installed. They will be able to tell you about their experiences and perhaps alert you to any problems they experienced - ones that you will be able to avoid.

Not all solar panels are equal

When choosing a solar panel it is important to consider both how it is manufactured and what materials are used. There are three tiers of manufacturer quality and Gershoj Energia Kft only supplies solar panels from the marked tiers.

An accredited solar installer will make sure that solar panels are positioned on your roof for maximum efficiency, safety and correctly wired to the inverter.

Orientation and tilting

The basic condition of operating a solar equipment is to have the Sun shining on it.
It's important to place the solar equipment so it gets most sun possible, during the full path of the sun. We recommend the angle of your absorber area to be close to 45 degrees. This will optimize the weaker ends of the season.
More information can be found in Solar Position menu.

Multiannual supervision

If required, Gershoj Energia monitors the production data of the system online with its specialists (if the system is connected to the Internet), and checks whether the micro power plant is running properly. Periodically, we inspect the optimum operation of the system on-site. Via the Internet, you will be able to share the electricity production data and experience with friends and other micro power plant owners.

Package: fully ready-to-install, including design and licensing

We create opportunities for families to have a solar panel system easily and as quickly as possible. The offer covers everything from design and licensing through implementation to subsequent follow-up inspection.

A solar cell, or photovoltaic cell, is an electrical device that converts the energy of light directly into electricity by the photovoltaic effect. Generated DC (Direct Current) power is converted into AC (Alternating Current) power by an inverter. AC power is the kind of electrical that your television, computer, and toasters use when plugged into the wall outlet.
