General Solar Power FAQs

What is solar power?

Solar power is energy harnessed from the sun's rays, converted into electricity or used to heat air, water, or other substances.

How do solar panels work?

Solar panels contain photovoltaic (PV) cells that convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. An inverter then converts DC into alternating current (AC) for use in homes and businesses.

What are the benefits of solar power?

Solar power reduces electricity bills, lowers carbon footprint, provides energy independence, and increases property value.

Installation FAQs

What should I consider before installing solar panels?

Consider roof condition, orientation, shading, local weather, energy needs, and local regulations or incentives.

How long does a solar panel installation take?

The installation process typically takes 1-3 days, but the overall timeline can be longer due to permitting and inspection processes.

Can solar panels be installed on any roof?

Most roofs can accommodate solar panels, but the roof should be in good condition, with adequate space, and free from excessive shading.

Do I need to clean and maintain solar panels?

Solar panels require minimal maintenance. Regularly checking for debris, dirt, and ensuring they are not shaded can help maintain efficiency.

What is the lifespan of solar panels?

Solar panels typically last 25-30 years, with manufacturers often providing warranties of 20-25 years.

Technical FAQs

What is a solar inverter?

A solar inverter converts the DC electricity produced by solar panels into AC electricity used by home appliances and the grid.

What are AC and DC in solar power systems?

AC (alternating current) is the type of electricity used in homes and the grid. DC (direct current) is produced by solar panels and converted by inverters to AC.

Can solar panels generate electricity on cloudy days?

Yes, solar panels can generate electricity on cloudy days, but their efficiency is reduced compared to sunny days.

What happens if there is a power outage?

Traditional grid-tied solar systems shut down during power outages for safety reasons. Battery storage or hybrid systems can provide backup power during outages.
