How does a solar photovoltaic system work?
Photovoltaic cells contain two layers of semiconducting material, typically silicon. When sunlight hits PV modules, it produces direct current (DC), which is then converted into alternating current (AC) by an inverter. The electricity thus produced is wired into your main service panel, where it feeds your internal power grid.
What is a photovoltaic (PV) system?
Some main components of a photovoltaic system are: PV panels (also known as PV modules), batteries, a charging regulator or controller, an inverter to convert direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC), wiring and a framework. Our PV systems are designed to provide households and businesses with sustainable, reusable and clean green energy.
Will a roof-mounted framework cancel my roofer's warranty?
We thoroughly coordinate our installation process with roofers to ensure warranties remain intact. Additionally, our solar system is a safe investment with a payback period of between 3-5 years.
How long will with the solar panel last?
Based on our experience and reliability testing, our PV panels will last more than any typical business investment you choose. They are manufactured to withstand harsh weather and cloudy days. An average PV panel lasts up to 30 years.
Do I need batteries?
No, batteries are not needed. Grid operated solar systems do not store any electricity. In fact, any electricity that you do not use in your house is fed into the electricity grid automatically.
How much electricity will each PV solar panel produce?
The amount of electricity a solar panel produces depends on multiple factors, including the direction of the panels, where you live, any shades causing hindrances for sunlight to reach, or the amount of sunlight available at a given day. Research about the specific solar system you want to be installed and consult GreenUltimate regarding any query.
What happens during a blackout?
We at GreenUltimate take all the required precautions. Keeping your safety in mind, we have built our systems in a way that they stop producing electricity in case of a blackout. It is an important safety measure that allows anyone working on a blacked-out grid system to work safely. As soon as the system comes back on line, its ability to produce electricity will also be restored.
