Pennsylvania Solar Energy Company Inc. of Canonsburg, PA stands behind solar power because it’s a clean, renewable energy source. A solar power system produces electricity by converting the sun’s UV rays into clean and useable energy. When struck by light, photons within the photovoltaic solar panel begin to excite the electrons within the panel and produce a renewable energy source.
This reaction produces direct current electricity, which then needs to be transformed to alternating current, which can then be used to power your appliances. This is done with a central-inverter system (DC system) or a micro-inverter system (AC system). A DC system is centrally located in your home or business and comes with a few drawbacks. It tends to lose energy and pose noise and safety concerns. We recommend that you choose an AC system.
An AC system uses micro-inverters located on the roof beneath each solar panel to transform energy. The installation is completed on the roof, which:
