The way the solar system works

THE WAY THE SOLAR SYS­TEM WORKS

While sun­light falls onto the PV mod­ules, the cur­rent flow is gen­er­ated. The power pro­duced in this fash­ion flows through the elec­tri­cal pro­tec­tion devices directly to inverter, which then con­verts AC into DC.

PV mod­ules con­vert solar energy into elec­tri­cal energy. High qual­ity, energy suf­fi­ciency, long life­time, and resis­tance to weath­er­ing and exter­nal agents are the most impor­tant fea­tures of PV mod­ules offered by Solar­time. 15 year warranty/​25 year efficiency.

HOW MUCH ELEC­TRIC­ITY CAN A PV SYS­TEM GEN­ER­ATE?

A typ­i­cal res­i­den­tial PV sys­tem is able to pro­duce approx­i­mately between 37 kW at peak capac­ity, which is enough to power all of home­own­ers needs through­out the day. In the case of over­pro­duc­tion, elec­tric­ity can be stored in a bat­tery unit or deliv­ered straight to the grid. At night, you can use the energy accu­mu­lated in the bat­tery or draw power from the grid.

HOW POP­U­LAR IS SOLAR ENERGY IN THE USA?

The amount of solar power instal­la­tions has been grow­ing rapidly in the US. The IHS, a research com­pany, has found that by the end of 2016 the total capac­ity of installed res­i­den­tial sys­tems would reach 100 MW. Thanks to finan­cial and tax incen­tives imple­mented by fed­eral, state, and local gov­ern­ments, it is expected that solar power pop­u­lar­ity will dra­mat­i­cally increase through­out the coun­try in the near future.

HOW MUCH CAN I SAVE THANKS TO SOLAR PAN­ELS?

A typ­i­cal res­i­den­tial con­sumer may be able to save from 70% and up to 80% on their elec­tric­ity bill by invest­ing in a PV sys­tem. The exact sav­ings amount depends on, but is not lim­ited to: cur­rent util­ity rates, sun­light amount/​shading and size of the installed PV systems.
