As a homeowner, one of the best investments you can make is in solar energy. With energy costs at an all time high and continuing to rise, solar panel systems can save you money from day one. Homes with solar also sell for more given their cost savings & environmental benefits. Solar just makes sense.


Solar energy harnesses the sun’s light and converts it into usable power. This can be achieved in two main ways: photovoltaic (PV) panels and concentrated solar power (CSP).

Photovoltaic (PV) panels are the most common method for capturing solar energy. These panels are made up of numerous solar cells, typically containing silicon wafers. When sunlight hits the silicon, it disrupts the atoms and creates an electric field. This flow of electricity creates direct current (DC) which can be used to power appliances or be converted to alternating current (AC) for use in homes and businesses.

Concentrated solar power (CSP) plants use mirrors to focus sunlight onto a receiver. The concentrated heat then boils a liquid, creating steam that spins a turbine to generate electricity. This method is more complex and typically used for large-scale power generation.

Essentially, the cost of solar will likely be less than or proportionate to what you are spending in recent times for the same expense of power used through your electrical provider. In case individuals decide to push through to change to solar power, it’s expected to have 2 monthly fees. However, the total of the 2 charges is foreseen to be equal to, or most likely be lesser than our clients’ existing power costs.

Pushing through solar energy buffers you and your family from future electrical price increments as it supplies predictable spending monthly.

You can pay off your solar payments instead of the power fees, cutting back finances significantly. Regardless if you have a loan for your solar power system or you settle in cash, the lasting conveniences of shifting to solar are without a doubt worth the price.

Your expenses for the electrical bill will merely be the standard service fee for the electrical meter hooked to your structure. This is merely a small chunk of the expense of what you are paying the utility provider in the past. Take note that although you change to solar energy, you will still have to be connected to the power company due to the fact that your residence needs it to make solar energy get the job done.

Each time the sun rays shine onto a solar panel, photons directly from the shining sun are taken in via the cells inside of the solar panel, which produces a magnetic field going through the layers and stimulates electrical energy to circulate. The solar batteries yield DC (Direct Current) energy, but the majority of people use AC (Alternating Electricity) power which leads us to the question – just how does solar energy function?

There is an apparatus inside the solar energy system called an inverter that switches the DC electrical power to AC electricity so people may use it in your residence. Traditional solar-power systems operate using a single ordinary inverter to convert the current. Sunpower by NYSSF utilizes the newest technology using mini inverters at the back of each panel that offers a safer, exceptionally beneficial, much better solar power system. Microinverters are likewise highly recommended for home owners living in the northeast whereby clients have to think about environmental factors including tree shadows, snowfall, and foliage falling on the solar-powered panels.

The power manufactured by the solar panels takes care of the requirements of the residence before anything else. In the event that there is an oversupply of electrical power being produced, it returns to the electrical grid by means of rotating the utility electric meter backward, giving 100% credit scores for every Kilowatt hours created from the roofing system.

After dark, every time the solar panels are not creating electrical power, the property or home is going to get electricity out of the plate where the electric energy that your solar-powered system obtained during the day is stored. From Early Spring thru Autumn, the solar-powered system will typically pull in additional electrical power than made use of. That energy pushes through to accumulate or carry over day in day out, week after week, increasing points on the utility record. These points can be put to use through the winter months, when the manufacturing of power by the solar panels is literally diminished as a result of briefer days, and minimized angle of the sunshine, snow, and foliage on the solar energy panels. The mechanism described previously is referred to as “Net Metering” and this is just how solar energy works in NYS-powered households.

The solar energy setup begins with a Technical House Examination (THA). Our solar energy service provider will appraise your residence, collect pictures and get solar readings of the roof through our drone. Our crew will additionally look your attic room area and the electrical fuse box. After all the required information are compiled, it will be forwarded to our engineers for the creation of the solar power system. The technicians are going to take into consideration the electrical power code and likewise the building code of the state where your residential unit exists.

The key installation method gets under way by designing the rails on the roof structure covering. The rails are secured to the roof and the panels are attached to the rails. The rails are connected straight to your house’s rafters utilizing stainless-steel lag bolts. The steel as well as aluminum are without a doubt made from top-grade products which are warrantied for 25 years. These cover labor and all elements made use of by Sunpower by NYSSF.

The solar panels will have microinverters connected to the rails that make the solar energy system part of your house. All electric cablings are kept below the photovoltaic panels where possible. Our company takes pride in the extraordinary visual appeals of our finished solar installments.

Sunpower by New York State Solar Farm has actually been acknowledged as a “Gold Status Quality Solar Installer” by New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) for the past 4 years. Our company takes honor in this recognition considering that just 1 of 8 installers throughout the state has been accorded this specific accolade.
