Photo Voltaic (PV) System

Photo Voltaic (PV) System
The United States Department of Energy indicates the amount of solar energy that hits the surface of the earth every +/- hour is greater than the total amount of energy that the entire human population requires in a year. Another perspective is that roughly 100 square miles of solar panels placed in the southwestern U.S. could power the country.

It seems that the use of solar power should be the best choice for us. Supprisingly, it is less than 1% of the electricity supply in the US is generated by solar power. The main fuel sources used to generate electricity are coal, gas, nuclear and oil. They are all environmental unfriendly. There was a CBS 60 Minutes interview on how unsafe the coal ash to our environment was.
Solar power is a clean, abundant, safe and quiet energy solution compared to any other types of energy source. The main reason that it is still not a popular alternative source of energy is because of the expensive one-time investment.

Now, we have found a way and resource for you to make solar power become a very affordable energy solution.

Let us work together to protect our envirnoment and improve the comfort and safety of living.

Introduction to PV System

A solar electric system converts sunlight into electricity using many smaller solar (photovoltaic or PV) cells. When you hear the word photovoltaic or “PV” used, it simply means converting sunlight into electricity. Solar cells contain special materials called semiconductors (usually made of silicon). Semiconductors share some properties of metals and some of those of electrical insulators, making it a key part of solar cells. Panels of solar cells are mounted on your roof or the ground and convert particles of light energy, known as photons, into direct current (DC) electricity. An inverter changes DC (direct current) power into AC (alternating current) power, which we know as AC electricity that powers everything from our lights and electronics to appliances and water heaters.

Net Meter

Net Metering allows residential and commercial customers who install solar (and other small scale renewables) to receive a credit on their electricity bill for excess power generated by their system and fed back into the grid.

PV System Advantages

Government Incentives and Rebates
The federal government offers a tax credit on the total cost of a system including installation. 

30% for systems placed in service by 12/31/2019
26% for systems placed in service after 12/31/2019 and before 01/01/2021
22% for systems placed in service after 12/31/2020 and before 01/01/2022

There is no maximum credit for systems placed in service after 2008.
Systems must be placed in service on or after January 1, 2006, and on or before December 31, 2021.
The home served by the system does not have to be the taxpayer’s principal residence.
2020. For commercial installations an accelerated depreciation program exists (MARCS)
which allows for additional return. There are many state and utility programs that exist to reduce the initial
investment as well. Grants may also be available depending on qualification and availability.

SMART GRID

A key element that allows all of the emerging Smart Grid technologies to function together is the interactive relationship between the grid operators, utilities, and you. Computerized controls in your home and appliances can be set up to respond to signals from your energy provider to minimize their energy use at times when the power grid is under stress from high demand, or even to shift some of their power use to times when power is available at a lower cost.
ECO-FRIENDLY
The intent is focused on not creating harm to environment, and to prevent as much harm from occurring to the environment through your interactions with it. It goes beyond an idea and extends to actual practices that influence how communities, businesses and individuals conduct themselves. Being eco-friendly goes far beyond just turning off lights when you leave the room or separating your garbage for recycling – it is about changing the purpose of how you live.
WIND GENERATORS
Wind energy for a sustainable future Wind energy's potential is huge. Siemens is committed to driving this potential into real growth for the future of renewable power. Toward this goal we enable profitability and reduce project risk by pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Integrated solutions along the entire value chain help customers transform wind into a profitable asset for a sustainable tomorrow.
SAVE POWER

How will the Smart Grid affect your home and save power? It won’t look very different, but behind the scenes a lot will be happening. Even right now, in many cities across the nation, new equipment, appliances, and software are available that use emerging Smart Grid technologies to save energy, seek out the lowest rates, and contribute to the smooth and efficient functioning of our electric grid.

In achieving our mission of providing the most reliable and latest technology products and first-class services, we owe thanks to our team of dedicated engineers and professionals who are devoted to ensuring the best design, quality control, guaranteed ship dates, technical assistance and on time project completion dates in the solar energy and LED lighting industry.
