How Do Solar Panels Work?

How Do Solar Panels Work?

The technology behind solar panels is fascinating in the way the clean energy is generated. Photons from the sunshine at the molecular level bump electrons from one side of the solar cell to a lower level of the solar cell. This results in more electrons in the lower area and very few electrons in the upper area. This difference in electrons results in a voltage difference that then allows the electrons to flow through a circuit to get back to the upper level of the solar cell to replenish those atoms missing the electrons. This movement of electrons is electricity and with it the power to make things happen with electronic equipment such as making electric motors spin or lights to glow. The more electricity you use at your home, the more solar panels you will need to produce that amount of electricity. Once we know how much electricity you use on an annual basis (by looking at a copy of your electric bill) we can figure out how many solar panels you need.

Most solar electric systems are designed to feed excess energy back to the grid, giving you credit for the excess energy that is provided for your home. So, the credit is used to draw electricity from the grid at night or on a stormy day.

Our company can also add a battery to the solar system. The solar panels can then generate energy during the day and store the extra electricity to be used in the event of a power failure from the utility company.  

Solar panels offer a great solution to reduce or eliminate electric bills and with extra electricity you can improve the quality of your life at home by giving you the extra electricity to run your air conditioner more often or for longer periods of time. 

With 0 down and a 12 year loan, you can purchase a solar electric system and receive a 30% Federal Tax Credit.  Typically, your solar loan payments are less than what you are paying for your electric bill each month.
