PV solar cells are highly functional and energy-efficient. Uncomplicated as they are, they perform the essential job of making electricity from sunlight. Solar electric, or photovoltaic (PV), systems take the sun's energy and convert it into direct-current electricity. An inverter in the solar system then converts this into alternating current for residential and business use.

The solar modules that are the visible component of the system are attractive and adaptable to various roof formations. In fact, panels can be set up almost any place that has a good southern exposure and not too many obstructions. A yard or garden will do as long as trees or buildings do not interfere with sunlight.

Silent Partner

There are many reasons why the California Energy Commission (CEC) recommends PV solar cells and offers cash rebates to property owners who install this system. Solar is quiet and clean--no noise, no pollution. Being simple in design, with no moving parts, solar systems are durable and virtually maintenance-free.

With a 25-year warranty and a life expectancy of 40 years, solar is a bargain. Cash rebates and tax credits cut the cost by almost 50%, so the system becomes quite affordable. Above all, you have your very own reliable electricity source.
