What is a solar power system?
A solar power system is a set of solar panels that are used to convert sunlight into electricity. Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells, which use the sun’s energy to generate electricity.
How do solar panels work?
Solar panels work by absorbing the sun’s rays and converting them into electrical energy. The solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells, which use the sunlight to generate electricity.
What are the parts of a solar power system?
The main components of a solar power system include solar panels, an inverter, and a battery. Solar panels are the main part of the system, and they are responsible for converting sunlight into electrical energy. The inverter is responsible for taking the electricity from the solar panels and converting it into AC power, which can be used in your home. The battery is responsible for storing the electricity so that it can be used when the sun is not shining.
What are the different types of solar power systems?
There are two main types of solar power systems: grid-connected and off-grid. Grid-connected systems are connected to the utility grid, and they use solar panels to supplement the electricity that you receive from your utility company. Off-grid systems are not connected to the utility grid, and they use solar panels to generate all of the electricity that you need.
How do I choose the right solar power system for me?
There are a few things that you need to consider when choosing a solar power system. The first is the size of your home. You will need to determine how much electricity you use on a daily basis, and you will need to find a system that can generate that amount of electricity. Additionally, you need to consider the climate in your area. If you live in an area with lots of sun, you will need a different system than if you live in an area with little sun. Finally, you need to decide whether you want a grid-connected or off-grid system.

Will my solar panels still work in the winter or when it is cloudy?
Solar panels will still work in the winter and when it is cloudy. However, they will not produce as much electricity as they would in the summer or on a sunny day.
What if I produce more electricity than I use?
If you produce more electricity than you use, you can either sell the excess electricity back to the grid or use it to offset future electric bills. Many states have programs that allow you to sell your excess electricity back to the grid.
What is net metering and how does it work?
Net metering is a billing system that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid. For example, if a residential customer has a PV system on the home’s rooftop, it may generate more electricity than the home uses during daylight hours. If this happens, the utility company will provide a credit to the customer’s bill for the excess electricity. The customer can then use this credit to offset the cost of electricity used at night or during periods of low solar production. Net metering is available in many states, but each state has different rules, so it’s important to check with your local utility company to see if net metering is available where you live. Phoenix Power will work all of this out for you and make sure you get the most out of your solar panels.
Can I add more solar panels later?
You can always add more panels to your system. We recommend adding more batteries to your system first, if you live in an area with little sun, or if you want to be prepared for a power outage. More panels will increase the amount of power your system produces and will lower your electric bill even more.
How long will my installation take?
The average installation time for a solar panel system is between 1-2 days. However, the size of your system will affect the amount of time it takes to install. More panels will take more time to install. Additionally, if you have a complicated roof or need to do additional work to prepare for the installation, it may take longer.
Can I store excess energy?
You can store excess energy in batteries. This is a great option if you live in an area with little sun, or if you want to be prepared for a power outage. More panels will increase the amount of power your system produces and will lower your electric bill even more.
Can I take my home off the electrical grid?
You can take your home off the electrical grid if you have a large enough solar panel system and enough batteries to store excess energy. This option is great for people who want to be prepared for a power outage or who live in an area with little sun. However, it is important to note that taking your home off the electrical grid is a more expensive option.
