Solar Panel Installation

The Key to Optimal Solar Energy Usage

Solar energy has gained significant popularity as a renewable energy source due to growing awareness of environmental impact. However, this clean energy source is only as effective as its installation. Our team of experts has a thorough understanding of the best locations for installing solar panels to ensure maximum energy absorption.

The placement of solar panels is crucial to optimizing solar power usage. We consider the position of the sun, panel angle and inclination, and potential obstacles when selecting the ideal installation site. Through diligent attention to detail during installation, we ensure panels are securely and accurately installed.

At the end of the day, the success of a solar energy system depends heavily on the installation process. That’s why our professional team offers a comprehensive approach to solar energy – from consultation to installation and aftercare.

Solar Energy FAQs

Helpie FAQ

  • How do solar panels work?

    The process of solar panels turning sunlight into energy is complexed, so we’ll break it down to simplified terms here. Solar panels convert sunlight 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 unit can power your home or charge your car. The system redirects excess electricity to the power grid for further use.

  • What are solar panels made of?

    The solar panel consists of silicon solar cells, an aluminum frame, a glass cover, 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.Silicon solar cells have atoms with electrons surrounding them.

    The sunlight strikes the silicon crystals, triggering the release of electrons. These electrons then bounce around randomly.This ejection 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?

    Edmund Becquerel coined the term photovoltaic effect to describe the process of converting light into electricity. The absorption of light stimulates an electron to transition to a higher energy state, resulting in this process. Resulting in the creation of a charged particle. This particle stays within the material and generates electricity.

  • 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. Inspect solar panels for dirt and debris a few times a year to ensure optimal performance. In most cases, local companies will provide this service for a nominal fee.
