PV Solar Panels For Your Phoenix, Arizona Home

Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels efficiently convert the sun’s energy into electricity. There are many economic as well as environmental advantages of using PV solar panels. Not only will you cut down your energy bills, but you will also reduce your carbon footprint. 

PV solar panels have been the best and most popular choice of homeowners in Phoenix, Arizona for decades due to their performance and efficiency. They do not emit any gas and it does not pollute the air. It uses clean power to help protect the environment.

How Do PV Solar Panels Work?

Photovoltaic solar systems convert the sun’s energy into direct current and produce electricity. Electrons are knocked free from atoms by using particles of light that the solar panels absorb. Solar panels are composed of photovoltaic cells that are linked together to create a solar panel. 

The photovoltaic cells are placed in between layers of semiconducting silicon. When these cells are hit by sunlight, they create an electric field also known as the photoelectric effect. Each layer of semiconducting silicon has different electronic properties that electrify when hit by photons.

After electricity is generated, the direct current passes through an inverter to convert direct current to alternating current. The current can be your home or it can also be transferred to the electric grid if you have an excess supply of electricity.

Advantages Of PV Solar Panels

Photovoltaic solar panels are eco-friendly. It does not produce any harmful greenhouse gas emissions while generating electricity. Since solar energy is supplied by the sun, it is free and unlimited. You can use solar energy for your home anytime and anywhere there is sunlight.

PV solar panels have a large demand and the cost is expected to reduce for the next few years. This means it will help sustain the environment and at the same time, provide economical viability for the future. 

The maintenance cost and operation of photovoltaic solar panels is extremely low. Since it does not have mechanically-moving parts, it is less likely to break as compared to other sources of renewable energy systems such as wind turbines.

When your home energy consumption demands are high during the summer, PV solar panels can provide the best solution to efficiently cool your home and still help you save money on your energy bill.

PV solar panels have exclusive financial incentives that make it one of the best investments you can have. On the other hand, solar panels are easy to install on residential roofs and your lifestyle does not need to be interrupted during installation.

When photovoltaic solar panels generate electricity, they don’t produce any noise. Solar panels are made from silicon sheets and you do not have to worry about leakage of photovoltaic cells or any hazardous gas emitted by the solar panels. They are guaranteed safe to use.

Residential Solar Electric Systems

Residential Solar Electric Systems

A grid-tied solar system provides better efficiency rates and lower installation costs that will help you save more money. Grid-tied systems are very simple to install. As the term implies, these solar power systems are tied to the electricity grid and it will work without storage batteries. 

When your Phoenix, Arizona home is connected to the grid and you also have solar panels installed, then you are consuming and at the same time producing electricity. There is a two-way transfer of electricity between the electricity grid and your home.

Grid-tied systems do not need to produce 100% of electricity for your home or business. If energy is not needed, the solar panels transfer excess electricity to the grid. When the solar panels are not able to produce enough energy, the grid provides energy.

One of the best advantages of a grid-tied solar system is that it can be used for both residential and commercial buildings. This is a good source of renewable energy that is reliable and convenient. The high-quality components contribute to the long lifespan of the solar electric system.

Off-Grid Solar System

An off-grid system requires that the solar panels can provide enough energy to cover 100% of the electricity needs of a property. Backup battery storage is needed for off-grid solar systems since the demand for energy is higher at night or in a low-light environment. 

Grid-tied systems have simpler installation requirements than off-grid systems. Off-grid systems are typical in remote areas or locations that have no access to utility service. Electrical usage must be monitored in an off-grid setup since there is no grid source to supply excess power.

Hybrid Solar System

Hybrid solar systems function the same as grid-tied solar systems. They also differ when it comes to the type of inverters and batteries to store energy. They function as backup power during power outages. This is often a combination of solar and energy stored that is connected to the electricity grid. If you have high energy usage, you might consider a hybrid solar system. However, it is more expensive as compared to the grid-tied solar system.

Residential Solar Installation And Mounting

Sloped Roof Mounting

Most residential roofs have a sloped design. There are many options for a solar mounting system for angled roofs such as railed, rail-less, and shared railed mounting system. However, there are different approaches to mounting your solar panels to your Phoenix, Arizona home.

Rails

Rails are used to attach the roof to support rows of solar panels. A clamp with two rails is attached to a vertically-positioned solar panel. A screw or bolt is used to secure the rails to the roof with a flashing installed for waterproofing purposes.

Rail-Less

Solar panels are attached directly to the bolts or screws that are in the roof. Rail-less installation is much faster since there are a few components that need to be installed. The rail-less installation will allow you to position the solar panels in any orientation.

Shared-Rail

A shared-rail system uses two rows of rails for each row of solar panels. Every two solar panels will share a middle rail. There will be fewer bolts and screws needed since only three rails are necessary to install. 

The installation time and costs are reduced by using the shared-rail technique. The solar panels can be positioned in any orientation and once the rails are positioned accurately, the installation of the solar panels is much faster.

Do Solar Panels Work In Poor Sunlight?

Weather is an important factor for your solar panels to produce power efficiently. However, there is a big misconception that solar panels will not work when there is poor sunlight. Solar panels will still work in shaded areas, locations with poor sunlight, or cloudy weather. 

The energy that is produced is less as compared to excellent sunlight exposure. Solar power panels produce more energy during the summer season. Warm temperatures and strong sunlight will make your solar panels very efficient.

If you are considering solar panels for your Phoenix, Arizona residence, our expert technicians will guide you in planning, designing, and installing the best solar solution to your home.
