The panels installed on your roof collect the precious energy from the sun in the form of direct current (DC POWER) and send it to an inverter transforming it into alternating current (AC POWER);
The alternating current is then sent to your electric panel and used throughout the home like what you usually get from the conventional electric grid. Whatever energy you don’t use can be sent back to the grid, given, and utilized by your neighbors. This process helps keep the grid stable, and the electric company gives you full credit for that energy.
Generally, you send more power to the grid during Fall, Winter, and Spring, generating a substantial credit with the grid that eventually gets used in the Summer because of high power demand due to Air Conditioning use.
What we use!
These are the panels we use: They are monocrystalline black on black panels. The panels are Tier 1 which is awesome.
The equipment installed meets Dade County Standards can withstand sustained winds up to 150 miles per hour, and hail the size of baseballs and smaller, which is truly AWESOME.
Our panels also have a degradation measurement of less than half a percent. (0.5%) per year. So, in 20 years your panels will still be producing at 90%.
Tier 1 Solar
150 MPH, WIND AND HAIL RESISTANT
BASEBALL OR SMALLER
Guaranteed Advanced Performance
FOR 25 YEARS, 100% GUARANTEED LINEAR SUPPLY.
Hail and Wind Tested
Compared to some of our competitors who have been through the same field tests, this is how they fared, which is horrible. It is not only for how they look, but the degradation of their panels is 1%-1.5% per year. What this means, in 20 years, guess what? The panels only produce 60%-70% of the solar energy they initially produced.
