Sunlight Requirements for PV Systems

A photovoltaic (PV) system needs unobstructed access to the sun’s rays for most or all of the day to be effective. Shading on the system can significantly reduce energy output. Climate is not a major concern because PV systems are relatively unaffected by air temperatures, and snow cover typically melts quickly because panels are positioned [...]

Solar Panels: Installation, Maintenance and Longevity

You could install a photovoltaic (PV) system or solar panels yourself. However, to avoid complications or injury, you will most likely want to hire a reputable solar contractor with experience installing solar panel systems. While they are sophisticated electric systems, PV systems have few moving parts, so they require little maintenance. Many people ask, “how [...]

What Are Solar Cells?

Solar cells are small, square-shaped semiconductors made from silicon and other conductive materials. They are manufactured in thin film layers. When sunlight strikes a solar cell, chemical reactions release electrons, generating electric current. Also called a photovoltaic cell, a solar cell converts the energy of light directly into electricity by the photovoltaic effect. How Does [...]
