  • Can I expect a positive return on investment from my photovoltaic system? +

    The cost of PV technology has dropped dramatically in the past ten years and, thanks to government incentives or subsidies
  • Can I produce my own electricity? +

    If your home has a roof with some shadow-free space, a PV system can generate electricity for your consumption. With
  • Can I sell excess solar electricity back to my utility? +

    The householder of a PV system has two choices: either to sell all the output to the local power utility
  • Can I walk on photovoltaic modules on my roof? +

    PV modules are most often encapsulated in two layers of tempered low iron glass or between glass and tedlar (a
  • Do I have to change my boiler if I install a photovoltaic system? +

    PV is a technology that generates electricity, not heat. Therefore, the existing heating system remains unchanged. As a measure to
  • Do I need to contact my electricity supplier when installing a photovoltaic system? +

  • Does my grid-connected photovoltaic system have to include batteries? +

    Batteries are only essential if power needs to be ‘stored’ in case of a utility outage. However, most grid-connected PV
  • Does the manufacturing process of a photovoltaic system not need more energy than it itself produces during its lifetime? +

    PV systems, like every other product, do require energy during the manufacturing process. However, PV systems pay back this energy
  • How do I know what size photovoltaic system I need? +

    The best indicator for sizing a PV system is your historical electrical usage, or the number of kilowatt hours (kWh)
  • If I install a photovoltaic system on my roof, will it attract wasp nests? +
