The Sun’s Star Plus Energy can be used to power our daily activities in many different ways. It’s a clean, renewable resource that is available everywhere in the world.
Photovoltaics (PV) convert sunlight directly into electricity. Groups of PV cells are arranged into modules and arrays to generate larger amounts of electricity. PV systems can be used for a variety of applications, such as generating electricity for a home or business, lighting commercial or residential buildings and even powering public utilities.
Concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies use lenses or mirrors to focus sunlight onto a smaller area. This concentrated sunlight heats a working fluid, which then produces electricity or fuels another process. The most developed CSP technology is the parabolic trough. Other systems include the solar tower, concentrating linear Fresnel reflector and Stirling dish.
Some residential solar systems include a solar battery to store excess energy for use at night or during peak demand. The amount of energy your system produces depends on the number of sunny days your location receives and how much shade is present. Other factors include panel quality, labor costs and incentives.
Solar Energy Solutions offers multiple options for financing your residential or commercial solar energy project. We can help you determine the right solution to fit your needs and budget.
Solar systems produce clean, reliable energy and help reduce your carbon footprint. But, they do have some environmental impact at the manufacturing stage. Certain types of PV cells and panels contain chemicals that must be handled carefully to avoid leakage into the environment. When they reach the end of their useful life, solar systems also require careful handling and disposal.
