As long as the sun is in the sky, homes and businesses can reduce their carbon footprint and energy bills.

 

What is a solar PV system and how does it work?

Solar electricity or photovoltaics (PV) is a simple, reliable, and maintenance-free energy source. PV cells are linked together to form a PV module (panel), a group of PV modules forms a PV array. PV arrays can be mounted on roof tops, poles, ground racks, or integrated into the building itself.

Direct Current (DC) is produced when the sunlight shines on a PV array. The DC power is sent to a power inverter in which it is converted to Alternating Current (AC). The AC power is sent to your main electric panel where it is distributed throughout your house and is used in the same way as energy purchased from the electric utility. When the PV system produces more electricity than is used, the excess is sold back to the electric utility and distributed throughout the grid.

Is a Solar PV system right for your home?

Answer these simple questions to get started:

• Do you have a roof that faces from Southeast through Southwest?
• Is your roof available to the sun or are there trees, buildings, or obstructions interfering? If so, can these obstructions be removed?
• Is your roof new or in good shape? Your PV system will last for 25 years or more, so it is always best to install them on a roof that won’t need to be replaced within a few years.

Residential PV Solar Panel Installation

If you can answer yes to these questions then the next step is to contact us so we can perform a site survey. During this procedure, we collect data to plan for the most effective PV system to fit your needs. The installation process is as follows:

• Determine if solar power is right for you.
• Find the best location, positioning, and size of your PV array.
• Confirm the rebate and incentives that you can expect.
• With a signed contract, we submit the rebate application.
• Once the rebate has been approved we will start the permitting process and order the equipment.
• Install the equipment, test it, and facilitate the inspections.
• Complete the install with a customer education regarding the system specifics which include start up, shut down, and emergency procedures.
