You Save Green offers a complete solar electric install providing you with highly experienced Solar Technicians.
Our team of solar technicians are followed by our master licensed electrician. We are looking to offset our customer’s utility bills and design a solar package that will make economic sense and at the same time design it to perform at optimal use.
With all of our systems we will perform a based load electrical analysis, shading analysis report, three line electrical diagram, mounting rack design, structural analysis of roof truss, break down of funds, obtain customers approval for design, obtain building permits from all jurisdictions and submit incentive forms. All of our work will include a 10 year warranty on our labor and a 25 year warranty on our solar modules. YSG prides it self on using only premium made solar panels that are manufactured in the United States.
How do Home Solar Systems work?
In this simplified example, a solar system producing 2 kW of power (1 kW = 1 kilowatt = Ten 100 Watt Lightbulbs = 45 Compact Fluorescent CFL bulbs) is shown on the roof of a home in New York State. This home, using 3kW of power for all their appliances, cuts their consumption by 2/3rd on a sunny day, or, by turning off appliances, sends 1.5 kW back to the grid during the day.
How Do Solar Cells Work?
To understand the operation of a PV cell, we need to consider both the nature of the material and the nature of sunlight. Solar cells consist of two types of material, often the p-type and n-type silicon. Light of certain wavelengths are able to ionise the atoms in the silicon (causing atoms to either gain or lose electrons) and the internal field produced by the junction separates some of the positive charges ("holes") from the negative charges (electrons) within the photovoltaic device. The holes are swept into the positive or p-layer and the electrons are swept into the negative or n-layer. Although these opposite charges are attracted to each other, most of them can only recombine by passing through an external circuit outside the material because of the internal potential energy barrier. Therefore if a circuit is made (see Figure 4), power can be produced from the cells under light because the free electrons pass through the load to recombine with the positive holes.
The Photovoltaic Effect in a Solar Cell.
The amount of power available from a PV device is determined by;
• the type and area of the material;
• the intensity of the sunlight; and
• the wavelength of the sunlight.
Solar electric systems have been used by the space program since 1954, and the technology itself (the photoelectric effect) was discovered in the 1800's -- consider that:
Solar electric systems contain no moving parts -- the entire system is solid state electronics in action
Solar electric systems need very little maintenance -- keep the modules free from dirt by letting the rain (or a hose) keep them clean, and that's about it
Solar electric modules (the panels that sit exposed to the elements) come with 25 year warranties (try getting that from a car manufacturer!)
Solar electricity is used:
In outer space to power satellites
In the Arctic to power expeditions
On snowy and windy mountain tops to power telecommunications equipment
Along roadsides to power emergency phones
In jungles and deserts to power water pumps and refrigeration units
By power companies themselves to produce electric power that you are using to read this with your computer
