General Solar FAQ
Q) Do we have enough sun in our area for solar to make sense?
A) We do. In fact, we have more solar energy available here than they do in Germany, and Germany produces more solar energy per capita than any other country!
Q) What is the difference between solar thermal and PV?
A) Solar thermal systems use the heat of the sun to heat an antifreeze solution which is pumped from the collector outside back into a heat exchanger to heat water. A PV (photo voltaic) system uses the radiation from the sun to generate DC electrical current in the panels which is either stored in batteries or immediately converted to AC power with an inverter.
Q) what are the different types of PV systems?
A)There are 3 basic types of PV systems.
The first type is grid tied. This type of system does not have batteries. It consists of solar panels and a grid tie inverter. The goal of this system type is simply to reduce or eliminate you electric bill. A grid tie PV system typically does not provide backup power during power outages. Some systems can provide limited backup power during sunlight hours.
The second type is a hybrid system. These systems also connect to the grid , but they have a battery bank as well. They are capable of supporting some or all of your loads during a power outage.
The third type is an off grid system. These systems are not connected to the power grid at all. They rely on solar power with batteries, and a backup generator that acts as a battery charger for days when the demand is greater than the supply of sunshine.
Q) What is net metering?
A) Net metering is the practice of taking the difference between your power produced and power consumed at the end of the month either charging you for power used or putting a credit on your account for excess power produced. In Indiana they will not actually pay you for excess power, but they will let you use the credit next time you don’t generate enough. A good example of this is when you generate more than you need for several months through the summer then use the credit in the winter when solar output is lower.
