Most frequent questions and answers
Each solar panel has several individual photo-voltaic cells (PV) consisting of semiconducting material. When the sunlight hits this material, the energy is absorbed and flows out of the cells. This is called Direct Current electricity. Next, the DC electricity flows to an inverter, where it is converted into Alternating Current. Once DC is converted into AC, it is ready for your building to use. It then flows from the inverter into your structure’s power system. Your home or business uses this power the same way electricity from the grid is used. Any excess energy flows out to your utility company. In turn, your energy company gives you a credit on your electric bill.
Residential projects may see a ROI in 6-10 years. Commercial projects may see an ROI in 3-5 years, depending on various factors. Ultimately, your location determines what incentives are available
This depends on several factors, such as the percentage of your electric bill you wish to cover, your overall budget, your peak electrical needs, the layout of your home or business, etc. We will discuss your needs during our consultation.
