About Solar Energy

If you know little about solar power, here are a few basic facts:

  1. Solar can be passive or active. Solar roofing is active using either solar shingles or solar panels. Active solar uses photovoltaic cells which produce energy through a chemical reaction.
  2. Photovoltaic cells (PV) are connected together to form modules. Modules are combined to form arrays.
  3. The sun’s energy hits a semi-conducting material in the array. Electrons are knocked loose and create an electric direct current. An inverter can be used to transform direct current to alternating current.
  4. Solar energy can be calculated in the same way as electricity coming into your home. One kilowatt hour is 1,000 watts of energy used in one hour. If your solar system produces enough energy you may be able to sell it to your local electric company.
