Solar Power Systems
What is Solar Energy?
Solar panels are made of photovoltaic cells, which take the energy of sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. The inverters installed in the system then convert that (DC) electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity. Once converted, the AC electricity is sent to your electrical panel to provide power for your devices that require. electricity.
So how does this affect your electricity costs?
It’s simple. Your electricity consumption is measured by your utility meter, which is used to determine your bill. When the solar panels generate more power than you immediately need, that extra energy goes back into the power grid and you receive a credit that can be used in the future.
(Utility companies credit programs may vary, contact your provider for details.)
Manufacturing facilities can go green by taking advantage of available roof space for solar panels to realize significant monthly utility savings.
Solar is one of the easiest and most affordable forms of renewable energy for farmers and ranchers to adopt in their operations.
Dealers have recognized the use of
solar energy to assist in offsetting their
high 24-hour electrical needs while also utilizing solar panels as canopy cover for hail.
While thousands of schools have already utilized the cost savings and benefits of solar energy, the untapped potential of solar for education buildings is immense.
Communities all over are using clean,
affordable solar energy–paying now to save later.
Users such as convenience stores, that
require 24-hour refrigeration, lighting and air conditioning, can take advantage of the financial and tax benefits of solar energy.
All new construction projects should consider the benefits and payback of incorporating solar energy systems. Considering the expected lifetime of the building, federal tax credits, and conventional long-term financing will make for an easy. decision.
