Solar panels convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. The DC electricity is then converted into alternating current (AC) by an inverter, which can be used to power your home or business.
Yes, solar panels can still produce power during cloudy days, although their efficiency may be reduced.
Typically, solar panels have a lifespan of 25-30 years. However, they don't stop producing electricity after this period - they simply work at a reduced efficiency.
If you have a battery storage system, your solar panels can continue providing power during an outage. Without a battery, most solar systems will shut down in order to protect utility workers who might be repairing power lines.
Yes, studies have shown that homes with solar energy systems generally have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes.
If you move, you can transfer your solar energy system to the new homeowner, sell it with the house, or in some cases, move it to your new home.
Yes, solar panels are designed to withstand a range of environmental conditions, including hail, storms, and high winds.
Net metering is a billing mechanism that allows you to sell excess electricity back to the grid, often in exchange for credits.
Yes, solar power is a reliable source of energy. It can be even more reliable when paired with a battery storage system for uninterrupted power supply.
Solar power reduces your reliance on utility-supplied electricity. During the day, your solar system can supply your property's electricity needs, reducing or eliminating your energy bill.
