Frequently asked questions
How do solar photovoltaics (PV) work?
Solar panels make use of the sun's power throughout the day and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. Most homes and businesses run on alternating current (AC) electricity, so the DC electricity is then passed through an inverter to convert it to usable AC electricity. At that point, you either use the electricity in your house or send it back to the electric grid.
How long will my solar power system last?
In general, solar modules are durable and capable of withstanding wind, water and heat. The various components of your solar power system will need to be replaced at different times, but your system should continue to generate electricity for 20 - 25 years.
What is Net Metering?
Net metering scheme is a newly introduced energy solution to businesses and home owners to allow them to "produce their own electricity" . This is simply done by feeding the national grid by day and consume the difference all day long; whenever your consumption is below your production of energy via solar energy, you get to be credited and vice versa.
The net of both consumption and production is then calculated at the end of each year and the difference is only what you get to pay or receive via bank transaction.
Net metering procedures can differ from country to another
How will it appear on my electric bill?
Each month, you will receive virtual net metering credits on your electric bill from your utility. Each credit is equal to one kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity. For example: you use 1,000 kWh at your home in one month, and your solar system generates 800 kWh. The 800 kWh in credits from your share are applied to your electric bill and you get to be billed for the remaining 200 kWh.
How much will solar panel maintenance cost?
Solar panel systems are made of durable tempered glass and require little to no maintenance for the 20 to 30 years that they will generate power. In most cases, you don’t even need to clean your solar panels regularly. If something does happen, most equipment manufacturers include warranties, although warranty terms depend on the company. We offer a 25 years warranty on our solar panels
