Solar Photovoltaics (PV)

Solar Photovoltaics (PV)

Solar Photovoltaics (PV) are a renewable energy system that converts the sun's energy into electricity. The PV panels are designed to withstand 120 mph winds and typically carry 20 - 25 year warranties. An average panel will guarantee power output at 90% of rated power for the first 10 years and at 80% of rated power until the 20th year.

The solar panels can be placed anywhere on a property where they receive sufficient sunlight. Common locations include carports, awnings, ground arrays and roof systems. For flat roofs, you have the option to install a system with no roof penetrations; it is a ballasted system weighted down with concrete blocks or sandbags, etc. Please be sure to coordinate with your roofer in order to maintain your roof warranty. The solar panel system requires the use of an inverter, which converts the DC current created by the solar array to AC current. AC current is used for most businesses and residences in the United States.
