Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

What is Solar PV?

 Learning from the word itself, the prefix “photo” means “produced by light,” and the suffix “voltaic” refers to “electricity produced by a chemical reaction.”PV technology produces electricity directly from the electrons freed by the interaction of sunlight with certain semiconductor materials, such as silicon, in the PV module. The electrons are collected to form a direct current (DC) of electricity.A complete solar PV system will consists modules connected to an inverter that changes the PV’s DC electricity to alternating current (AC) electricity to power your electrical devices and to be compatible with the electric utility grid. Recent industry changes now make storage systems offer make sense as an option and of course will provide back-up power in case of utility power outages.

Can PV systems produce power on cloudy days?

Yes. Although a PV system may receive 80-90% less sunlight on a cloudy day, the modules can still generate electricity.

Do PV systems work well in the cold?

Yes. In fact, photovoltaic systems generate more power when the temperature is lower. Because of the shorter hours of daylight and lower angles of the sun in winter, PV modules do generate less energy than in summer.

Will my system have storage?

Storage Systems are so you can use electrical equipment when there is no sunlight. Grid Connected PV systems don’t have storage. However, you can benefit from storage in ways we're excited to share with you.

What happens during a power outage?

With a grid connected solar PV system, the inverter will automatically disconnect itself from the utility grid when there is a power outage. This is to prevent back feeding the grid and putting engineers working to restore power in danger. But, if you have a grid connected PV system with battery back up it will automatically switch to backup power with little detection. Both these systems will automatically hook back up to grid once power is restored.

Does PV add to the Resale Value of my home?

PV “System Resale Value” for your home is based upon research published in the Appraisal Journal which concluded that “The increase in appraisal value for a home is about twenty (20) times the annual reduction in operating costs due to energy efficiency measures.”. To calculate System Resale Value the first year annual utility savings is multiplied by twenty (20). Source: Evidence of Rational Market Valuations for Home Energy Efficiency, Appraisal Journal, Nevin/Watson.

How long will my solar system last?

Most solar panels come with a 25 year power output guarantee and are expected to last at least twice that long. The power output guarantee on the solar panels is provided by the manufacturer of the panels and states that at the end of the 25th year, the solar panel will still produce a minimum of 80% of their original power output.

When is the best time to install solar?

The best time to install solar was last year and will always be last year. No matter what it costs solar is a method of generating electricity that will provide for your needs.It will make you more self sufficient and why would you keep paying a utility when you can generate your own power for free from owning a power generating station of your own. Plus electricity rates are increasing while the price of solar has dropped 70% in the past few years! All while improving the efficiency and quality of the panels!
