Photovoltaic cells in solar panels turn sunlight into electricity via the photovoltaic effect, making solar panels a viable renewable energy source.
Solar panels can be installed on most homes with a suitable roof space and access to sunlight. An onsite assessment can determine if your home is suitable or not.
Most solar panels will continue to work for 25 to 30 years. However, they can continue producing electricity beyond that period at a reduced efficiency.
Savings may vary based on electricity usage, system size and local energy rates. Solar panels can cut down or even eliminate the expense of utilizing electricity.
A battery bank, a collection of connected batteries stores surplus energy generated from renewable energy sources such as solar panels for later use when the energy source is not producing electricity.
The lifespan of a battery bank depends on various factors, including the type of batteries used and usage patterns. With regular upkeep, a battery bank can serve you reliably for up to 15 years.
Yes, a solar electric system can be expanded in the future. Additional solar panels can be installed to increase the system's capacity and meet growing energy demands.
A solar electric system has the potential to power your entire home, depending on the system size, energy consumption and available sunlight.
