Solar Panel System FAQ

Solar energy is the resulting radiation from the sun that is capable of producing heat and generating electricity through chemical reactions, commonly referred to as ‘green’ power.

Solar radiation is light or electromagnetic radiation that is emitted by the sun.

There are two kinds of solar energy. Concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP) and photovoltaics (PV).


The most common solar energy is (PV) that is generated through solar panels. When the sun is shining on solar panels, energy is generated, then absorbed within the panel through the PV cells.

The resulting electrical charges moving in response to the internal electrical field inside the cells cause electricity to flow.

Concentrating Solar-Thermal Power

Concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP) are used primarily in very large power plants.

Mirrors collect solar energy, converting it to heat when reflected and concentrated onto receivers. The heat can be used for producing electricity or stored for use at a later time.

Solar panels or photovoltaic cells are the most common form of harnessing solar energy and commonly installed on homes or commercial buildings.

For larger applications, such as photovoltaic power stations, they are arranged and aligned side by side for capturing sunlight in large fields.

When the sun’s rays are hitting on the cells, electrons are released from their atoms through the cellular semiconductor materials within each panel. The flow of electrons through the cells generate electricity.

Solar energy is a renewable and inexhaustible energy source. The sun is a constant, fixed presence that remains the same from day to day, month to month and year to year. Everywhere on earth receives sunshine making solar energy available anywhere.

Solar energy creates employment for builders, developers, maintenance techs and installers. The solar industry fuels the economy offering businesses and families investment opportunities, creating local wealth and jobs.

Minimal maintenance is required when solar panel systems are set up and in place. Other than periodic cleaning, it is an electrical system and has a useful lifespan of up to 25 years.

Solar panels are very practical and very easy to dismantle when time to remove or replace them. Materials are all recyclable that can be reclaimed and reused. This reduces the environmental impact of solar energy overall.

A solid, reliable technology that is improving but really has become a mature technology. Solar panel systems are durable, reliable and they perform.
