Frequently Asked Questions
Looking for more information or have a specific question? Check out some common questions and misconceptions with solar energy, solar panels and solar energy companies.
What is a solar panel system? </h3 >
A solar panel system is a system that converts sunlight into electricity, which can be used to power your home or business.
How does a solar panel system work? </h3 >
Solar panels convert sunlight into DC electricity, which is then converted into AC electricity by an inverter. This AC electricity can then be used to power your home or business.
Are solar panels effective in all weather conditions? </h3 >
While solar panels are most effective in sunny conditions, they can still generate electricity on cloudy days. However, they may not produce as much electricity during these times.
How much can I save by installing a solar panel system? </h3 >
The amount you can save depends on many factors, including the size of your solar panel system, the amount of sunlight your location receives, and your current electricity rates.
How long do solar panels last? </h3 >
Most solar panels are designed to last for at least 25 years, but they can often continue to produce electricity for many years beyond this..
Can I install a solar panel system myself? </h3 > While it is possible to install a solar panel system yourself, it is generally recommended to have it installed by a professional. This is because incorrect installation can lead to reduced system efficiency and potential safety hazards.
Will I still receive an electricity bill if I have a solar panel system? </h3 > If your solar panel system is grid-tied (connected to the electrical grid), you will still receive an electricity bill. However, the amount of your bill will be significantly reduced as you’ll be using the electricity generated by your solar system first before drawing power from the grid.
What happens if my solar system generates more power than I use? </h3 >
If your system is grid-tied and generates more power than you use, the excess electricity can be sent back to the grid, often earning you credit with your utility company.
Can solar panels work during a blackout? </h3 > If you have a battery storage system connected with your solar panels, you can use the stored power during a blackout. However, standard grid-tied solar systems without battery backup will shut down during a power outage for safety reasons.
