SOLAR ENERGY

Reduce cost and dependence on utility companies in the short and long term with solar energy systems.

Photovoltaic systems can produce electrical power or heat for homes or businesses of any size. Solar installations installed on roof tops or the ground can offset electric charges and include battery backup.

Solar Energy FAQs

Helpie FAQ

  • How do solar panels work?  Photovoltaic solar panels convert sun light photons into direct current (DC) through their movement around a circuit. An inverter converts this electricity from DC to alternating current (AC) to match the country’s power grid. The AC powers your home or charges your car. Extra electricity is then diverted back to the grid for use.
  • Solar panels made of the following: Silicon solar cells, a metal frame (usually aluminum), glass sheet for casing, standard 12V wire, bus wire, and Plexiglas.
  • Can you elaborate on the solar cells? Solar cells are often referred to as photovoltaic cells. They contain silicon and convert light into electricity by the photovoltaic effect. Atoms in the silicon solar cells are surrounded by electrons. Sun light hits these crystals of silicon and electrons are ejected. This bounce leaves an electron hole. When a bouncing electron finds this hole and recombines, it creates energy – which we capture as electricity. This resulting effect is a physical and chemical phenomenon.
  • Did You Say A Phenomenon? Yes, dubbed this by its founder Edmund Becquerel, the physical and chemical conversion of light to electricity happens when absorbing light causes an electron (or other charge carrier) to a higher energy state. 
  • What Is the Average Amount of Solar Panel Maintenance?There is a very low amount of maintenance for solar panels partly due to no moving parts. Clean and inspect your solar panels for dirt and debris a few times a year. In most cases, local companies will provide this service for a nominal fee.

To be confident your system is properly tied into your home wiring you should hire a genuine electrical contractor like Dollens Electric, not just a solar contractor.
