A solar panel is a panel designed to absorb the sun’s rays as a source of energy for generating electricity or heating. Solar cells in the modules mounted on your roof convert sunlight directly into DC power. A component called an inverter converts this DC power into AC power; that used in your home. The system interconnects with your utility. During the day, if your solar system produces more electricity than your home is using, your utility might allow net metering. Net metering is the crediting of your utility account for the excess power generated being returned to the grid. Your utility would provide power as usual at night and during the day when your electricity demand exceeds that produced by your solar system. Systems are also available with a battery backup. Part of the power produced by your solar system during the day is used to charge the batteries, which provide power for your critical loads in the event of a power outage.
Solar electric power works for most homes. Solar systems are engineered to work with most roofing materials, in most locations where direct sunlight is available, in almost every region of the United States. State agencies and municipal utilities offer rebate and incentive programs for homeowners and small businesses to promote the installation of renewable energy equipment such as ours. Incentives can cut the cost of your system in half, saving you thousands of dollars. Knowledgeable technicians at HAYNES Energy Solutions would be happy to tell you more about the incentives available in your area.
We install and service energy equipment, and by sharing our knowledge of rebates, tax incentives, and solar power production, we can help you make sound decisions, ensuring you get the most value for your dollar. Not only that, but you will also be making a right decision for our environment as well! Contact HAYNES Energy Solutions today at 828.254.6141 or by visiting us online here.
