A solar installation utilizes solar modules, one or more electrical inverters, and racking. There are several different types of solar modules available for installation today, but most are primarily comprised of either mono or poly crystalline. Crystallinemodules consist of individual solar cells in aluminum frames, with a tempered glass front, and an EVA laminate backing. These modules range in size from 200-watts to 400-watts. All come with either a 20 to 25-year warranty and are backed by large stable corporations.
Crystalline solar modules are manufactured by companies such as SunPower, Suntech, Schott Solar, Mitsubishi Electric, Sharp Solar, Kyocera Solar, and Silliken. Silverwood Energy, Inc. sells all brands of modules. Unless you have a particular module in mind, we will choose the optimal brand and size module that best suits your system's requirements and that will provide the best production for the least cost without any aesthetic concerns.Crystalline modules work well for both residential and commercial applications.If roof space is a potential concern, crystalline modules are the most efficient modules on the market today and give you the most solar production for the least amount of required roof space. They are extremely durable and resilient and work well in almost any weather condition.
Along with the solar modules, your solar installation requires one or more electrical inverters. The inverter changes DC power to AC power. As with solar modules, there are many different inverter manufacturers with inverters available in numerous shapes and sizes. Most residential inverters range in size from micro-inverters to 8000 watts, while commercial inverters can range from 30 kW to 500 kW. SunPower, SMA, AE Solaron, Fronius, PowerOne, Enphase, and SatCon are some of the main inverter manufacturers.Some inverters release their heat through convection, while others have a built in fan. Both designs have their pros and cons. Depending on the type of installation, brand of module used, and location of the project, Silverwood Energy, Inc. will design your solar energy system to use the inverter that performs best for your installation.Silverwood Energy, Inc. only sells and installs inverters that come with a standard 10-year warranty (optional 15 or 20-year warranties are available) or micro-inverters that come with a standard 25-year warranty.
Silverwood Energy, Inc. uses only the best materials to mount solar modules. Our installations utilize either IronRidge, UniStrut, UniRac, or ProSolar racking depending on the type of installation. We also specialize in non-penetration roof systems such as the SunPower T10 and T5 as well as SunLink, P2, and DynoRaxx.If you are looking for a solar canopy or carport, Silverwood Energy, Inc. can help custom design a system for your project based on the dimensions of the area you are looking to cover.Silverwood Energy, Inc. does not sell prefabricated solar kits. We custom design each system with attention to several different factors such as aesthetics, production, and cost. Call us today and let us design a custom system for your home or business.
