Solar Power Systems for St. Charles, MO
Sustainable Power for Missouri Homes & Businesses
As the cost of traditional electricity continues to rise, along with the harmful emissions that accompany it, many homes and businesses are turning to solar power systems as a clean and renewable alternative.
At Solera Energy, we are committed to bringing clean, renewable energy to homeowners throughout St. Charles, MO. For the past 12 years, we have completed more solar panel installations than all other companies in the Missouri and Northwest Arkansas areas combined, and this is only the beginning.
How Solar Power Systems Work
Solar panels operate by allowing tiny particles of light (photons) to knock electrons (bits of electricity) free from atoms, sparking a flow of electricity. Your solar panels convert that electricity to direct currents (DC electricity). Once this occurs, your home’s inverter will transform the DC charge to AC (alternating current) electricity so that it can be used to power your home.
Solar power systems work like this:
- Solar panels convert sunlight to DC electricity.
- An inverter installed in your home or building converts DC electricity to AC electricity.
- Your home uses only the exact amount of AC electricity needed to operate.
- Extra electricity is then credited to the grid.
Why Solar Power Systems?
Not only is solar power a clean source of energy, but it’s also plentiful. No matter how large your home is or how much power it requires, you will never need to worry about running out. In fact, the sun creates more energy in one hour than all the energy consumed on our planet in an entire year!
Furthermore, the cost of solar power has been decreasing since 2009. While start-up and maintenance costs may still be out of reach for some homeowners, slowly but surely, solar power systems will become accessible to more and more people.
