Plug loads refer to energy used by equipment that is plugged into an outlet. In an office, key plug loads include computer and monitors, printers, and copiers. Plug loads can average approximately 30% of electricity use in office settings, much of which can be attributed to parasitic loads.
Photovoltaic modules and inverters are components of solar photovoltaic systems used to convert direct current solar energy into alternating current electricity that can then be used to power electronics locally, or be sent on to the electrical grid.
