Solar Energy Facts – Solar Electric Panels and Solar Panel Installation

Solar electric panels also called photovoltaic panels or PV panels, are primarily used to power homes that are also connected to the existing power grid system. Solar panels consist of multiple solar cells that form modules. These modules are combined to form the photovoltaic panel. The more solar panels your system has, the more you can reduce your reliance on power from the grid. You use the electricity you produce and draw any additional electricity your house needs from the grid. If you produce more power than you need, that electricity goes back to the grid and you earn credits for the extra energy you produce.

For most homeowners, it now makes good economic sense to produce their own solar power. Click to learn more about the financial incentives. There are tax credits and rebates that greatly reduce the cost of installation. Then as you begin to generate your own electricity, there is an easy way to essentially sell your power back to the utility companies!

“No company has ever invited me to choose anyone from their customer list at random to call for an unbiased, unprepared reference, but Solar Energy World did. They also have invested in their own solar system for their headquarters. None of other local solar installation companies I called had done that. Solar Energy World’s commitment and level of integrity is impressive.”
