Lets discuss about Green energy for a better world. Solar energy is available all over the world. Not only the countries that are closest to the Equator can put solar energy to use – Germany, for example, has by far the highest capacity of solar power in the world. With the introduction of net metering and feed-in tariff (FIT) schemes, homeowners can now “sell” excess electricity, or receive bill credits, during times when they produce more electricity than what they actually consume.
Certain solar cells require materials that are expensive and rare in nature. This is especially true for thin-film solar cells that are based on either cadmium telluride (CdTe) or copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS). Power density, or watt per square meter (W/m²), is essential when looking at how much power can be derived from a certain area of real estate of an energy source. Low power density indicates that too much real estate is required to provide the power we demand at reasonably prices.
Because of shading, insufficient space and ownership issues many American homes are simply unfit for solar panels. With the introduction of shared solar, homeowners can subscribe to “community solar gardens”, and generate solar electricity without actually having solar panels on their own rooftops. The advantage of this is that installation costs can be cheaper if large numbers of panels are installed on vacant land. Legislation is required to enable community solar in each state and whilst this has existed from some time in some smaller states it is only just coming into play in key states such as California and New York.
Solar panels (also known as photovoltaic panels) are installed on your home. The solar panels convert light (photons) into electricity (voltage). Each panel is connected to a microinverter that changes the electric current from DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current). Each microinverter operates independently of the others so that if one stops working your system is still generating maximum power. The microinverters are also connected to a communication hub that is connected to the internet. Information is sent to our monitoring system that allows us, and you, to know when one of your microinverters is not working properly. The software allows you to see how much energy you are generating and how much you are using.
The typical solar panel installation takes one to three days. Obviously, larger systems will take a little longer. After the solar panels are installed the utility company will come out to change out the electric meter. Depending upon the utility company, it can take one to three months for the utility company to do their part and turn on the solar energy system.
There are a few factors that go into pricing a solar panel installation. At SunKey, we offer three types of panels and two types of inverters. This equates to five different system designs, each of which has a different cost associated with it. Next, we need to take into account the size of your home and roof space, the accessibility and slope of your roof, whether you want an off-grid or grid-tied system, and whether your electrical panel requires any upgrades prior to installing the solar panel system.
SunKey Energy has quickly become a recognized leader in the solar energy industry by raising the bar when it comes to exceeding customer satisfaction.
