Solar panels collect energy from the sun. When sunlight hits the solar panels, photovoltaic (PV) cells convert sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity.
Power Your Home
The inverter then converts the DC current from the sun into AC power, which is the power used in your home.
The excess electricity goes into the grid and you receive a credit on your account.
Solar panels collect energy from the sun, using the 99.9% pure silicon inside as a semiconductor. At the heart of any solar solution is the photovoltaic (PV) cell; photo meaning “light” and voltaic meaning “electricity”. When sunlight hits the solar panels, those PV cells convert sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity. The inverter then converts the DC current from the sun into AC power, which is the power used in your home. Wondering what happens if you produce more power than you use? The excess electricity goes into the grid and you receive a credit on your account. The inverter also provides your system with ground-fault protection, preventing your panels from experiencing an electrical breakdown.
Solar technology uses the second most abundant element on earth to harness the limitless energy of the sun.
Solar systems are an extremely reliable source of power, especially when using Green Street. By using SunPower’s technology, your system comes with a 25-year warranty so you don’t have to worry about receiving consistent energy over its lifetime.
By utilizing solar energy, you’re significantly reducing your CO2 emissions and thereby contributing to a much healthier environment.
Tax Credits and Incentives
Because solar power has so many benefits, the government adamantly encourages participation by offering many tax credits, rebates, and other incentives.
INCREASED HOME VALUE
Research has shown that for each kilowatt of energy installed, the value of your home increases upwards of $5,000.
Once your panels have been installed, there’s nothing else you need to worry about during the lifetime of your system.
COMBAT INCREASING ELECTRICITY COSTS
With the cost of electricity rising at an alarming rate, it’s even more important for you to rely on your own energy production. By investing in solar panels, you can avoid exorbitant increases in your energy bill and save even more.
CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUSTAINABLE ENERGY MOVEMENT
By utilizing the power of the sun – a natural energy source, you’re contributing to a shift in energy use that can be sustained over time.
