The practical realization of photovoltaic (PV) cells began a revolution in energy generation. If light lands on these cells, elements and materials inside them emit electrons that produce power by producing electricity. So how are these “solar” cells used to make solar panels and how does Solaron install these to provide free electricity to property owners all over Napa?
What Makes a Solar Panel?
Solaron exclusively equips photovoltaic panels produced by SunPower, a leading designer of photovoltaic cells. These cells are connected together to generate panels of multiple sizes and power configurations. Based in California, SunPower employs the useful amounts of sunlight here in our state to drive development that makes photovoltaic panels that consistently supersede the endurance and power of their competition.
Connecting Panels Together
Many panels are connected together to generate enough energy to run a household. Most properties have a certain amount of area that can be given to photovoltaic panels. Here is where the SunPower superiority regularly shines! By manufacturing solely the most powerful photovoltaic panels, Solaron makes it simple to maximize your system power, even when minimal space is available. And the SunPower connection system is created to be enduring, yet simple to connect, minimizing the time you have to wait for your system to be operational.
Making Helpful Power
Solar panels generate direct current (DC), but houses operate on alternating current (AC). Therefore, your photovoltaic system by Solaron requires a device called an “inverter.” This device takes all the photovoltaic electricity from your many panels and adjusts it to a kind your household can use. Extra energy can be used to do any of the following:
- use it to recharge devices, like an electric car;
- send electricity to the grid to get payment from the company;
- recharge a household battery bank, storing power for later.
While the first option simply needs the correct kind of outlet, the other two require more components that add functionality to your photovoltaic system.
Start Using Solar Panels
You too may take advantage of the significant amounts of sunlight found in California! Installing a photovoltaic panel system from Solaron cuts your costs, minimizes your household production of greenhouse gases and starts you now on energy’s future.
