1. How do home solar systems work?
A photovoltaic (PV) solar energy system is composed of solar panels, racking for mounting the panels on the roof, electrical wiring, and an inverter. From sunrise to sunset, the solar panels generate direct current electricity (DC) which is sent to the inverter. The inverter converts the DC into alternating current (AC), the type of electricity required for household use. The AC power is delivered directly to your home’s main electrical service panel for use by you and your family.
2. How does shade affect a solar system’s performance?
3. How much will I save with a solar system?
Your current monthly energy use and the size of your system will determine your actual savings amount. And with little or no startup costs*, systems can start paying for themselves immediately. Savings will vary based on several factors, including system size, performance, your household's average energy usage as well as any applicable solar credits, tax incentives, and current solar energy buyback (net metering) rates offered by your utility company. A detailed calculation of your potential return on investment (ROI) will be provided by Techsun Solar during your solar evaluation.
4. How much space does a system occupy?
5. How much electricity does a PV system generate?
The amount of power produced will depend on how large the PV system is. The greater area of PV panels, the more electricity is generated. For example, a 2kW grid tied system produces about 2,880 kWh a year. Over 25 year lifespan, this comes out to be 72,000 kWh.
6. Does my solar system produce electricity on a cloudy day?
7. Do the Modules break when load is applied to it, like stones or jumping of monkeys?
Normally it doesn’t break, until it’s a heavy stone. It also doesn’t break on jumping of monkeys; still the threat can be minimized by making grills at very less cost.
