Watch How Solar Panels Work
Solar panels produce power for your home!
Solar panels installed on your roof, or placed on mounts, can harness the sun’s energy so your solar energy system’s inverter can generate clean power in the form of watts that you can then use to power your home. Excess watts of energy are sent to your electric utility’s power grid, and a net meter device installed in your home tracks how much energy you draw from and send to the grid. You can then receive energy credits for the solar panel energy you sent, and those save you money on your electric bill. You could even store these excess watts in a home battery to use later. Talk about a bright idea!
Not only that, but there are different types of solar panels that fit different types of budgets. There are polycrystalline panels for those looking to save money. Polycrystalline panels are the bluer solar cells that look like they have a shiny confetti in them. And there are monocrystalline panels for those willing to spend more for greater efficiency. These are the black panels that have the corners cut off their cells.
Solar Panel and Equipment Information
What solar equipment brands does Power Shift Solar install?
We can procure all brands of solar panels and equipment, including LG, Panasonic, Silfab, Mission and Solarworld. The inverters we use are Enphase, and SolarEdge. Last we install battery backup with the latest technology of lithium iron phosphate batteries, that cycle life of 8000.
How long does a solar panel last?
Solar panels last about 25 to 30 years, but don’t think that means they stop producing electricity after the 25th year. This simply means the energy production level starts to decline according to the manufacturer.
