Solar Panels



Solar panels are typically installed on a roof but can also be installed on ground mounts and tracking systems. Solar panels are made up of individual photovoltaic (PV) cells, which convert sunlight into direct current (DC)  power. The system can be tied directly to the electrical  grid (grid tied) or be used as a stand alone system for power generation with battery back-up power.
