Solar Energy Systems: How They Work.

The sun is already giving off huge amounts of energy, so why not put it to use? With the Lennox® SunSource® Energy System we offer at A2Z Air Inc in Boynton Beach, you can limit your dependence on oil and gas and lower your utility bills.

So how exactly does it work?

The easiest way to explain a solar energy system is that the system uses solar modules made of photovoltaic (PV) cells to take in energy from the sun and convert it to electricity. This electricity will then power light, appliances and electrical devices in your home.

Grid-tied PV systems

Grid-tied PV systems are the most common and least expensive for residential solar systems. The SunSource Energy System we carry is grid-tied, which means it’s connected to your utility company’s power grid or power stations. Grid-tied allows you to use your solar energy system to power your home. On occasions when the system isn’t creating electricity, the utility grid will supply power to your home.

And, when your system produces an excess amount of electricity, it will be fed back into the grid through net-metering. With net-metering, your meter spins forward if you’re using electricity from the grid and backward when you’re putting your SunSource System’s electricity back into the grid.

*Note: Most rebates and incentives that make a solar energy system less costly are only available when your system is grid-tied.

Stand-alone PV systems are an alternative for those in remote areas without utility service, but they cost a lot more. A stand-alone system is not linked to a utility grid and provide for the entirety of a home’s energy consumption needs.
