Solar Energy Systems in Birmingham, AL

Adding a solar unit to your home or office can be both an attractive and affordable way to reduce your carbon footprint, increase the value of your property and save on energy bills. And, with over 65,000 new solar energy systems being installed annually because of their increased affordability and hefty government incentive programs, now is the time to update your home or office with a solar photovoltaic system.

In order to make a wise investment in a new solar energy system, however, it is important to do your research first. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of information that we think you should know before going solar.

  • Monocrystalline Silicon

    Mono-silicon is by far the most common type of solar unit because it generates the most amount of energy per inch. Their biggest drawback, however, is their bulk which limits your overall capacity but, due to their efficient design (generating an average of 7 percent more electricity than other types of system), a mere few panels are usually sufficient.

    Polycrystalline Silicon

    These panels are slightly less efficient than monocrystalline, because of their smaller size and lower levels of silicon. But, because they are cheaper to manufacture,the savings is passed to the consumer.

    Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)

    This new solar design is built with aesthetics in mind. Solar shingles, for example, are made to resemble the shingles on a house which creates a seamless transition between building material and solar unit. Some BIPVs can even be used to replace other building materials which can help offset the cost of new construction.
