How Solar Energy works?

Solar Thermal technology utilizes the heat of the sun to reduce the need for natural gas or electricity. A highly evolved technology, it is simple, fully automatic, reliable and efficient, converting sunlight into usable, free energy for decades at a time. As shown below, there are two basic systems – solar hot water and solar heat & hot water. Solar Service will work with you to design a system that meets your unique needs.

SOLAR HOT WATER

1. A food grade anti-freeze is pumped through the panels, heated by the sun and returned to the mechanical room.
2. This thermal (heat) energy is used to heat water by using a device called a heat exchanger.
3. The potable hot water is then stored in a separate storage tank and fed to a conventional hot water before flowing to your tap.  The hot water heater supplies back up heat if needed, ensuring you will always have hot water.
4. The result is Significant energy and financial savings!

SOLAR HEAT & HOT WATER


Solar can also be used for space heating by adding more panels and another heat exchanger.  Almost any furnace or radiant floor heating system can be converted into a hybrid heat source for your home.
1. A separate thermostat controls your solar heating system, ensuring the sun is the first source of heat for your home.
2. When the house calls for heat, a pump circulates solar heated water through a radiant coil installed in the furnace ductwork.
3. The furnace fan draws cold air from the home across the hot solar coil, delivering heat to the home.
4. This system also provides domestic hot water as described above.
NOTE: Solar thermal systems are NOT a good fit for baseboard or radiator systems as these devices require extremely hot water to operate.

SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS

Solar Electric or Photovoltaic (PV) systems convert sunlight into electricity. Sizing a PV system is a balance between three variables – current electric use, availability of space on the roof and budget. Generally, one will be a determining factor as Solar Service customizes a system for you.

Like solar thermal, PV systems are simple, reliable and fully automatic:
1. Sunlight strikes a solar electric panel, excites electrons and creates DC electricity.
2. An inverter is used to convert this electricity AC current which is then wired to your existing electric panel.
3. From there, electricity flows to appliances and outlets as needed and excess electricity feeds back to the grid/utility.

With reduced installation prices, increased incentives and reliable equipment choices, there has never been a better time in history to invest in a PV system!
Interconnection & Net Metering: 
Interconnection & Net Metering are separate agreements between the customer and the utility. Interconnection allows customers to connect to and feed energy back to the grid.  Upon successful review, the utility will install a bi-directional meter that tracks energy from both sources - grid power and direct generation from solar. Solar Service will assist with the application forms and facilitate this process.
Net Metering is an agreement that credits customers for excess solar energy sent back to the grid from the PV array.  Energy is tracked monthly on the utility bill and listed as a "rollover", much like a cell phone rollover minute. A bank of energy credits can be accumulated over time and then used later when electric use exceeds solar generation.  An annual reconciliation occurs once a year, typically April, and the account is set back to zero.  Although the utility does not pay cash for this energy, monthly usage is credited back for future use. 

Note: Going “off grid” usually requires significant roof space and can be costly depending on energy use. Contact Solar Service to find a system that works best for your needs.
