Solar power is the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics, indirectly using concentrated solar power, or a combination.
Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam.
Solar power is one of the cleanest, most sustainable, and most renewable resources in the world.
Let Potentia Management Group convert your residential or commercial power to solar.
Solar electric systems convert sunlight into electricity. Photovoltaic (PV) systems are made up of individual modules. A PV system generates solar electricity with a group of solar panels, called an array. When the array is exposed ti daylight, a DC electric current is created. The current is changed from DC to AC through an inverter. The system is connected to your electrical service panel, and supplements your utility service. When the PV system generates more electricity than household demands, the excess power is sent back to your utility company.
The panel array works best when facing south, and most not be shaded. Solar panels work fine in ambient light, and will produce significant energy on overcast days.
PV systems can be designed to meet most electrical needs and requirements, large and small.
Grid-connected PV systems are systems that remain plugged into the the local utility. These systems may have a battery back-up system, but most do not.
