Frequently Ask Questions

Solar panels absorb the sun's energy throughout the day and convert it into Direct Current (DC) electricity. The DC power flows to an inverter where the DC power is transformed into Alternating Current (AC) power. You can also divert the energy from solar panels to a battery to store excess energy. Batteries also operate as DC power.

Solar panels are a long-term investment and the system should continue to produce electricity for 25 to 35 years with very little (if any) maintenance problems during that time.

Solar energy, as renewable energy, is clean and inexhaustible. The fuel source (the sun) is free, so solar panels don't put out any harmful emissions, which is great for fighting climate change or reducing pollution. In addition to reducing electricity bills, the value of a property with solar panels increases.

Some of the few disadvantages of solar energy are the initial costs, which pay off only after a few years, as well as the size of the areas required to install the solar panels.

Any energy you produce yourself through solar panels is energy you don't have to buy. When your system produces more energy than you use, that energy is sent back into the grid. Or if you install batteries, you can store your unused solar energy and use it later. You can also sell the excess energy your solar panels produce.

Solar energy produces electricity more sustainably and it is one of the cleanest sources of energy. Solar power systems don't release any compounds that harm the environment and our health. However, any panels that stop working should be recycled properly.

Solar panels work even when it snows, rains, in winter, but with reduced capacity. Solar systems require direct sunlight to generate power, so they don't work at night, but at night you can use the energy generated during the day.

A properly installed solar system has little to no solar maintenance costs. Solar panels require minimal maintenance and the only thing they need is a periodic light cleaning to make ensure they keep working properly.

The sun is a huge source of free energy, however, the design, production of solar panels, inverters, batteries, as well as the installation of the solar system itself brings certain costs, which pay off after a few years of use.
