HOW DOES IT WORKAbout Our Solar Electric in Cape Coral, FL

You’ve no doubt heard of solar power, but have you honestly thought about what it can do for you? Imagine having the ability to power your home with little more than a solar panel and, of course, the sun. Photovoltaic Solar has come a long way since it was first introduced to the public, and with lots of different types of collectors and inverters, you not only have a fantastic way to cut utility costs, but you’re also helping make a difference in our environment.

So, how does it work? Well, on a very basic level, the solar panel (also known as a solar module) is typically installed on rooftops of homes or on open land (ground-mounted) that has a great amount of sunlight exposure. Throughout the day, the cells in the panel’s film lining are charged by the sun’s rays and then sent to the inverter, which turns into the same electricity you normally use around the house.

The “Photovoltaic Effect” is a process that generates an electric current in a photovoltaic cell when it is exposed to light. A panel consists of a layer of Silicon Cells, a semiconductive material, with a metal frame and encased in a glass unit. Upon exposure to the sun’s rays, photovoltaic cells initiate a flow of electricity inside the panel. Groups of panels are connected by wires that direct the flow into an inverter system which converts the direct current (DC) electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity and can be tied into the utility grid. Alternatively, AC electrical flow can be fed into the electrical panel whereby is available for use inside the building!

More times than not, when deciding if Photovoltaic Solar is the right option for your home, many questions come to mind. Luckily we’ve got the answers for you!


The PV cells in the panel absorb energy from the sunlight when the sun shines onto a solar panel. This energy forms electrical charges that move in reaction to an internal electric field in the cell, prompting electricity to flow.



Our solar panels for homes in Cape Coral, FL have many benefits. Here are a few you can look forward to.

  • Reduced Utility Costs: Residential solar systems can significantly reduce utility bills, particularly in sunny Florida. In fact, it is common for homeowners to see electricity savings in excess of $1,000 per year. Net metering enables the utility company to measure the amount of electricity that your solar system is returning to the electrical grid. During seasons of most vital sunshine, systems tied into the electrical grid can actually earn credits with the local utility company, which will be used to offset bills later in the year.
  • A solid long-term investment: The reduction of a homeowner’s electricity bill, credits earned from net metering, and governmental incentives in the form of tax credits all go back toward the cost of installing a solar electrical system. The return on investment is now between five and ten years, depending on the availability of incentives. Once your system is paid for, the solar system will generate free electricity for many years.
  • Enhancement to property value: Realtors confirm that solar-equipped homes hold higher property values and sell faster than homes without. Appraisers now include solar installations in their valuations of homes, and many buyers jump at the prospect of inheriting the benefits of a solar home.
  • Insurance against rising energy costs: Energy prices have increased steadily over the years. Obviously, producing one’s own energy is a savings in and of itself. Additionally, the credits a homeowner earns through net metering will increase proportionally to the rise in the cost of electricity.

Some homes are more ideal than others for the installation of a Solar Electric System. There are several questions homeowners may consider when determining the feasibility of moving forward:

Does your roof receive ample sunshine? In the vast majority of cases here in SW Florida, roofs are mostly unblocked by palms and other trees. In any case, your roof does not require perfect sun exposure to provide ample benefits. Solar panel installation can also be performed on ground mounts, carports, and even porches and fences.

Is your roof getting old? Our solar panels for homes in Cape Coral, FL are incredibly durable and can outlive new roofs. With that being said, a homeowner may want to consider replacing an older roof prior to moving forward because the costs related to uninstalling and reinstalling the panels can be burdensome.
