When you install a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. How much you can save depends on the utility rates and solar policies in your area, but going solar is a smart investment regardless of where you live.
Solar panels absorb the sun’s energy throughout the day and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. Most homes and businesses run on alternating current (AC) electricity, so the DC electricity is then passed through an inverter to convert it to usable AC electricity. At that point, you either use the electricity in your house or send it back to the electric grid.
If your solar panel system is connected to the grid, it will shut off in the event of a blackout. This is to prevent emergency responders and electricity utility repair-people from being injured by your panels sending power back to the grid. However, there are certain inverters you can buy that provide backup power in a blackout when paired with a battery.
We love sustainable living and especially Solar Systems! A common problem most people have in the life span of a solar system is staying on top of any issues that can arise, this can cause issues such as rooftop fires, voiding equipment warranties, decreased performance and the list goes on.
This is why we gave birth to the Solar My Home WA Maintenance Program. This allows our customers constant and unlimited support throughout the life span of the solar system, as well as an annual service reminder to keep your system in tip top condition – year on year.
