What's important when choosing a solar panel?
With the increase in demand for solar panels in recent years, there has never been so many options available to consumers. You’ll commonly see a solar system referred to as a PV system which stands for Photovoltaic. Under the Photovoltaic hat there are two common varieties. You’ll see panels that are “Monocrystalline” and you’ll see panels that are “Polycrystalline”. The terms refer to the cells within the panels. Once you’ve met with a solar professional we can determine which panels will provide you with the most value. Schedule FREE consultation.
Why is a high quality inverter so important?
Inverters are a critical part of your solar infrastructure. It is the device that takes the direct current (DC) energy that your panels are absorbing from the sun and converts it to the usable alternating current (AC) energy that powers your home. Some systems function with a micro-inverter secured to each panel. Others have a centralized inverter that manages power, often referred to as a string inverter. In addition, there are hybrid inverters that offer functions unique to certain circumstances. Our solar professionals after measuring the available sun light your system will capture, can provide you further details on options that will work best for your home. Learn More.
