Alaska Solar Panels

How solar panels work
Solar panels covert sunlight into electricity. Although they work their best on sunny days, Alaska solar panels can produce electricity on cloudy days. Solar panel systems use Photovoltaic cells to convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.

Alaska solar panel systems include an inverter, wiring and optional battery storage and a charge controller. Solar panels use the solar inverter to change the DC electricity into AC (alternating current) electricity to power your home and appliances. The DC electricity can be stored in the batteries for later use, so even on cloudy days your Alaska solar panels will still produce energy. Solar panels have no moving parts and require little to no maintenance.

Weather conditions, excess shade, and the angle and position of your solar array can affect performance. If too much snow builds up, it may have to be brushed off to ensure your Alaska solar panels are working at optimum capacity. Alaska solar panels work best when placed in direct sunlight, away from any object that might cast shade. A qualified solar installer can perform a free home solar evaluation to see if Alaska solar panels are right for you.

Alaska solar panels are a big help to the environment. They offer a clean alternative to burning fossil fuels that emits harmful pollutants and greenhouse gases into the air. In fact, each Alaska solar panel installation offsets an average of 180,000 pounds of carbon dioxide, 600 pounds of nitrogen oxide and 500 pounds of sulfur dioxide from being released into our atmosphere.

Contact Solar Panels online to see if Alaska solar panels are the right investment for you. If your monthly utility bill is $100 or more, home solar installation is cost-effective way to drastically lower your energy bills.
