Solar PV

Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology is a rapidly growing industry that offers a sustainable and renewable way to produce electricity. PV systems work by converting sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity, which is then converted into alternating current (AC) electricity through an inverter to be used in homes and businesses.

If you are considering installing a solar PV system, there are several things you should consider. Here are some key pieces of information to help you get started:

  1. System Components: A typical solar PV system consists of solar panels, an inverter, mounting hardware, and electrical wiring. The solar panels, which are made up of photovoltaic cells, are installed on the roof or in a ground-mounted array to capture sunlight. The inverter converts the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into AC electricity that can be used to power appliances and electronics in your home or business.
  2. System Sizing: The size of your solar PV system will depend on several factors, including your energy needs, the available space for solar panels, and your budget. RHW can help you determine the appropriate size of the system based on your energy consumption, geographic location, and other factors.
  3. Cost: The cost of installing a solar PV system can vary widely depending on the size of the system, the type of components used, and the geographic location. In general, the cost of solar PV has decreased significantly over the years, making it more accessible and affordable for homeowners and businesses.
  4. Energy Savings: A solar PV system can significantly reduce your electricity bills and provide long-term energy savings. Depending on your energy consumption and the size of your system, you may be able to produce enough electricity to offset your energy bills entirely, or even earn credits for excess electricity produced through net metering programs.
  5. Maintenance: Solar PV systems require minimal maintenance, as they have no moving parts and are designed to last for decades. However, regular inspections and cleaning of the solar panels may be necessary to ensure optimal performance.
