The sun's light (and all light) contains energy. Usually, when light hits an object, the energy turns into heat, like the warmth you feel while sitting in the sun. But when light hits certain materials the energy turns into an electrical current instead, which we can then harness for power.
By using solar energy, you...
Will reduce your carbon footprint, and can feel good about being a responsible global citizen. Another key factor for homeowners considering solar energy is the financial aspect. The financial benefits of solar energy can be seen in reduced utility payments as you use solar energy for electricity, heating, cooling, and lighting. In addition, by reducing your homes operating costs you are also increasing the value of your home.
As you can see, taking advantage of solar economics will...
Save you money NOW, and Provide you with a sound investment for your FUTURE
In a net-metering arrangement, the flow of electricity is bi-directional. The DC current generated by your solar panels flows into the inverter, where it’s converted into usable AC current. Any of the AC power that’s not consumed flows back into the grid, running the meter backward.
Classic String Array
With typical "string inverters" adding solar panels is possible but it can be complicated. Inverters and solar panels are designed to "fit together" in manufactured approved configurations. Because there's an ideal number of solar panels that should be configured up to a specific inverter, a whole mini system - solar panels and inverter - would most likely need to be added if you want to increase the size of your system. In many cases it's better to oversize your system a bit if you think you'll need more electricity in the next few years.
New Expandable Micro Inverter Systems
Choosing an Expandable Enphase Micro-inverter system will alllow you start out small and expand as you are able. You can literally add one panel and one micro-inverter at a time.
Sometimes making the decision to go green can be tough. There are many programs that individuals and business can take advantage of, provided by your local and federal government!
