Solar, Solar System, Solar Energy, Solar Panels, we have you covered with high quality solar panels at rock bottom prices. Hardy Solar is among the oldest Solar companies in the USA. Back when we started in 1977, there were not too many solar options available. Now, there are plenty of solar options as well as many different types of panels to choose from. In the early years, Solar panels and solar systems were low voltage and limited to the voltage of your deep cycle battery bank voltage. Usually 12VDC, 24VDC or 48VDC. Nowadays, solar and solar system trend is high voltage. With new solar charge controller technologies, the solar panel strings can be in series to increase voltage and lower line loss and reduce wire size.
Solar systems can now be off grid or grid tied. Let's talk about off grid solar system. A typical off grid solar system consists of solar panels, an off grid inverter, a charge controller, and a battery bank. An off grid solar system is typically used in remote areas where electricity is not available or cost prohibitive. A grid tie solar system is used to offset an electric bill. The main advantage of a grid tie solar system is there is no need for a solar battery bank. Think of your electric company as a 100% efficient battery bank that never needs to be replaced.
Solar energy is abundant. In fact, solar energy is available in all parts of the world. In the USA, all you need is a clear view of the southern sky. One common misconception involving solar energy is that it requires heat. In fact energy produced from solar panels is more efficient in cool weather.
Solar panels or modules are still the best alternative for producing electricity from the sun. There are some promising new technologies such as thin film and solar roofing materials ranging from roofing shingles to rolled roofing, however they are not yet cost effective when compared to the basic solar panel.
Solar Charge Controller
Solar charge controllers have advanced greatly in the past 20 years. With the advent of power point tracking, solar charge controllers can let the panels start producing energy sooner and continue to produce energy longer. This is done by wiring you solar panels in strings of series to maximize voltage. The charge controller then lowers the voltage to just above the intended use.
