Solar electricity is the conversion of sunlight or photons into electricity. This is done using special materials known as photovoltaic (PV) panels, which were first developed in 1954 by Bell Laboratories for use by NASA.
Electricity is produced by sunlight striking the surface of multiple photovoltaic (PV) panels. The electricity produced is in DC, much like your car battery.
That DC power must be converted to AC which is the form sent by the electric company to your home or business. Once your solar system converts this DC power to AC power then all or some of your home’s appliances will run off the solar energy.
Wiren offers the highest quality at an affordable price. Our customers are our family. We provide comprehensive service from evaluation to follow-up and monitoring.
No. Wiren will switch your home or business over to solar with no changes to your normal activities. We get your system up and running quickly so you can start saving money and using clean energy for 30 years.
This process varies customer to customer as each system is designed to meet specific needs. In our design proposal we will include an estimated installation time.
Our solar panels come with a twenty-year manufacturer’s performance warranty. The performance of our panels has a 25-30 years warranty and the inverters have a 10 years warranty.
The option to install a battery back-up (commonly called off grid) system depends on your energy needs. The battery back up system gives you full independence from the electric company. If you choose not to have to have a battery back up system for your solar system, you will still be tied into the electric company’s grid system.
Meaning your system will run off solar during the day and run off the electric company at night during off peak pricing hours. Both provide cost savings. Having a battery back-up system will also eliminate the need for noisy generators during black outs.
Our solar systems are designed to operate for more than 25 years. The basic PV module has no moving parts and can last more than 30 years. The best way to ensure and extend the life and effectiveness of your solar system is by having it properly installed and well maintained.
Every customer’s home or business is different. The size of the solar system will depend on your energy needs, roof space and financial goals. Wiren will custom design a system that will fit your specific needs and offset as much of utility bill as you desire.
