PV Solar Panels

PV Panels (PA Sunshine Approved Installer)

Solar Innovations, Inc., a PA Sunshine Program Approved Installer, is dedicated to assisting our customers from the initial project conception to the finished product. We understand converting to solar can be an intimidating task, but Solar Innovations, Inc. is here to help you in every way possible. Here at Solar Innovations, Inc., we work with a multitude of manufacturers and distributors to ensure that we can provide you with the right product for your particular application. Our trained team members have all the experience and skills necessary to take your project through the design phases and install it properly with regards to necessary code requirements.

Solar power is a great option for many homeowners. It’s a very versatile and easy to maintain power source. Most solar energy systems have a 25 year power output warranty from the panel manufacturer as well as a 10 year warranty on the power inverters. Combine superb manufacturing quality with no moving parts and a quality install, and you have a maintenance free energy production system that will last you for years to come.

At Solar Innovations, Inc., we believe education is the key to a successful project, so, we’d like to take a moment to show how a basic grid-tied solar system operates. Below you will see an diagram of a typical residential energy system:

The solar energy system, as seen above, contains a few primary components. Your main components consist of:

  • Solar Array: This term stands for all the panels in the system in their interconnected state.
  • Inverter: This unit is the device that alters the state of the solar arrays produced DC current to the grid usable AC current.
  • Balance of Systems Components: This is a broad term used to represent all the components used to connect your solar array to your inverter and to the grid. This also includes necessary meter modifications to be compliant with your power company’s regulations on interconnection.

Solar installations on a typical residential home last between two to five days and almost all the work occurs outside, so you will experience limited interference with your lifestyle. Commercial installations can range from a few days to a few months depending on the magnitude of the installation.

Integrated Greenhouse Photovoltaic Systems
