The Solar Energy Process
The Sun's Rays
When the sun’s rays hit a semiconductor within a solar panel, it releases electrons. These electrons move through a conductor to produce an electric current.
The Currents Convert
The direct current produced from the rays, converts to an alternating current, or AC electricity, which is what is needed in your home.
The Power Connects to Your Home!
The AC power is then fed into the primary circuit board, meaning it can power any of the outlets or connected appliances in the home.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does solar work in the Midwest?
Yes, I know it’s cloudy and dark here, but solar panels still produce enough power to save you money in the short and long term.
What is the break-even point for solar panels?
The data suggests that somewhere between years 7 and 12 you will break even and see profits for every year after.
Are solar panels free?
No, those ads you’ve seen are intentionally misleading, but the government is subsidizing the panels and there is no down payment or out-of-pocket cost for going solar. You simply offset your current variable monthly electric bill with a new fixed monthly solar bill.
How many solar panels will I need for my house?
This number varies based on the amount of power you use. For an average home, I have seen that 15-30 panels will suffice.
