    Frequently Asked Questions

    A: Solar panels work by utilizing the photovoltaic effect. When sunlight hits the solar cells in the panels, it excites the electrons in the cells, creating a flow of electrons or electricity. This electricity is then captured and converted into usable alternating current (AC) electricity through an inverter.

    A: There are several benefits to installing solar panels:
    • Renewable Energy: Solar energy is a renewable and sustainable energy source, unlike fossil fuels.
    • Cost Savings: Solar panels can significantly reduce or eliminate electricity bills, depending on the system's size and energy consumption.
    • Environmentally Friendly: Solar energy is clean and produces no greenhouse gas emissions, helping to reduce carbon footprint.
    • Energy Independence: Generating your own electricity with solar panels allows you to be less reliant on traditional energy sources.
    • Government Incentives: Many governments offer financial incentives, such as tax credits or rebates, to encourage solar panel installations.

    A: Most solar panels come with a warranty of 25 to 30 years. However, their actual lifespan can be longer, with many panels still functioning well after 30 years. Regular maintenance and proper installation can help ensure their longevity.

    A: The cost of solar panels has decreased significantly in recent years, making them more affordable for homeowners and businesses. The total cost depends on factors such as system size, panel efficiency, installation complexity, and location. Financial incentives, such as tax credits and rebates, can also help offset the initial investment.

    A: Solar panels can still generate electricity on cloudy or rainy days, although their efficiency may be reduced compared to bright sunny days. While direct sunlight produces the highest energy output, solar panels can still convert diffuse sunlight into electricity. However, the overall energy production may be lower during extended periods of cloudiness or rain.

    A: The space required for solar panel installation depends on various factors, including the system size, panel efficiency, and energy needs. Typically, solar panels are installed on rooftops, and the number of panels required can vary. A solar installer can evaluate your energy consumption and available space to determine the optimal system size.

    A: While it is possible to install solar panels yourself, it is generally recommended to hire a professional solar installer. They have the knowledge, experience, and equipment necessary for a safe and efficient installation. Moreover, professional installation ensures compliance with local regulations and maximizes the system's performance.

    A: Solar panels can potentially power your entire home, depending on factors such as the system size, your energy consumption, and the amount of sunlight available in your area. A properly sized solar panel system can generate enough electricity to cover most or all of your energy needs, making you less reliant on the grid.

    A: Solar panels do not generate electricity at night since they rely on sunlight to produce power. However, solar panel systems are often connected to the electrical grid, allowing excess electricity generated during the day to be fed back into the grid. This excess energy can be credited or used to offset the electricity consumption at night, thanks to net metering programs in many areas.
