  • How much electricity does a PV solar system produce?

    The production ranges from four to fifty kilowatts. On average, a 10-kilowatt PV system could generate approximately 13,140 kilowatt-hours per year, or a little more than the total amount of electricity used in a typical home.

  • What is solar energy? How is it generated?

    Solar energy is electricity that is converted from sunlight. It is generated through photovoltaic (PV) systems that use semiconductor cells, or modules, that convert sunlight directly into electricity. The PV cells are connected in the form of flat panels that can be mounted on rooftops.
