Solar panels are the core component of all solar power systems. They are responsible for converting the sun’s free energy into electricity that can be used in your home. Quality levels can vary greatly between residential solar panels, so it’s important to understand how solar panels work and how they are rated to ensure you are getting the best solar panels for sale.

How Residential Solar Panels Work

Residential solar power systems consistent of three main components: solar panels, a solar inverter, and a meter. Solar panels are also called photovoltaic or PV panels. This is because solar panels actually consist of thousands of small photovoltaic cells. Solar panels create energy when sunlight hits the photovoltaic cells, which excites electrons within the cells and creates a direct current (DC) of energy.

DC energy cannot be used by appliances in our home, so it must be converted into alternating current (AC) energy, which happens within the solar inverter. Once AC electricity has been generated, it flows into your home via a meter that keeps track of the amount of electricity your solar power panels have created. If excess electricity is generated, it is fed back into the electric grid via the meter so the surplus can be accurately measured.

Benefits of Benefits of Residential Solar Panels

High efficiency solar panels are the perfect solution for homeowners who wish to save money and do their part for the planet. Residential solar panels have become incredibly popular over the past decade because they offer many valuable benefits to homeowners. These include:

  • A huge reduction (or even elimination) of your monthly electric bill
  • Price-protected electricity for the lifespan of your system
  • Generation of clean, renewable solar energy
  • Reduced dependence on fossil fuels, which contribute to global warming
  • Maintain the aesthetic appeal of your home
  • Silent, unobtrusive operation
  • Long lifespan and minimal ongoing maintenance
Solar Panel Quality Rating System

If you have been looking at solar panels for sale, you have probably noticed that some of the solar power panels indicate their quality rating. If you see that the solar panels have a “Tier 1” rating, this indicates that they are among the highest quality solar panels available on the market today. The tier designations are optional – not all solar companies choose to undergo this independent analysis and provide their customers with the peace of mind that they are getting the best solar panels for sale. Since residential solar panels are a big investment for the average homeowner, we encourage you to consider only working with a solar company that provides Tier 1 rated solar panels.

Are there any hidden costs?

Simply put—no. During the free consultation, we’ll outline precisely what you can expect to get from our relationship. With many of our programs, there is no money down and you’ll be able to see immediate savings once your solar system is activated.

Who fixes the panels if there is an issue?

No need to worry if your panels need fixing. An iron-clad product warranty and worry-free maintenance is built into your solar agreement. We’ll keep your system functioning optimally and will monitor it to detect and resolve any issues that may arise.

will i still be connected to the grid?

When you go solar, there will be times that your system isn’t generating quite enough power—like after sunset. The majority of solar customers remain connected to the electric grid for easy access to power after dark.

What is net metering?

The good news is that when your solar panels produce more power than your home can use, the excess electricity is automatically sent back into the grid. The meter actually spins backwards, building a ‘bank’ of credits with your utility company. The process is referred to as “net metering,” and is another financial perk of home solar.

What if i lose power?

For the safety of workers that are fixing power outages, it is a utility regulation for solar power systems to shut off during blackouts if there is a connection to the grid.

What if i want to sell my home?

If you sell your home, you can transfer your solar agreement to the new homeowner pursuant to the terms of your solar service agreement. The process is very easy and offers electricity savings, which is a great selling point when your home is on the market. The Momentum Solar Customer Experience team will walk you through the entire process, but it’s important that you contact us by email at MyInstall@momentumsolar.com or by phone at 732.902.6224 as soon as you decide to sell your home.

Why are agreements 20-25 years in duration?

The reason for a 20 or 25-year term is to keep your rate per kWh as low as possible. Your solar savings are either locked in or predictable so that you can enjoy peace of mind for years to come.
