Frequently Asked Questions
How does solar energy work?
Solar energy works by converting sunlight into electricity through photovoltaic (PV) cells. PV cells are made from semiconducting materials like silicon that produce electricity when struck by photons from sunlight. The solar panels are made from interconnected rows of PV cells that collectively generate direct current (DC) electricity. This DC electricity is then converted to alternating current (AC) electricity, which can power homes and businesses.
What are the benefits of solar energy?
Some key benefits of solar energy include reduced electricity bills, increased home value, environmental benefits, reliability & battery backup options. Solar panels can significantly reduce or eliminate a home's electricity costs by generating power on site. Homes with solar may also have higher resale values. Solar is a renewable energy source that produces no air or water pollution when generating electricity. The system continues producing power as long as the sun is shining.
How long do solar panels last?
Most solar panels come with a production warranty of at least 80% of their rated output for 20-25 years. However, many solar panels continue producing power well beyond the warranty period with little degradation. The structural parts like racking systems also have lifespan estimates of over 30 years. With proper maintenance, a typical residential solar system can be expected to continue providing electricity for homeowners for around 30 years or more.
What is involved in the solar installation process?
The typical solar installation process involves a site assessment, system design, permitting, equipment procurement, installation, inspection, and interconnection. Our solar technicians will visit your home to assess the install location and create a proposed system design. Necessary permits are then obtained before equipment arrives on site. We carefully install panels, optimize their placement, and set up the inverter and wiring. An inspection confirms everything meets code before activation and interconnection to the electric grid.
