Solar Photovoltaic Roofing

With our flexible solar panels, we can equip almost any flat expanse of  southerly exposure to produce solar-electric power. Clearspan Construction offers photovoltaic electric producing panels for installation on new or existing roofs.  These panels generate direct current electricity that can be used, stored (batteries), or converted to alternating current to be sold back to the local power company (net metering).  The panels are flexible and durable; they can be applied to many roof surfaces.  We can assess the feasibility of your site and we offer complete design and installation services.

TECHNICAL EXPLANATION OF

SOALR PHOTO VOLTAIC

A PHOTOVOLTAIC CELL CONVERTS LIGHT INTO ELECTRIC CURRENT. TO CREATE AN ELECTRIC FIELD WITHIN A PV CELL TWO LAYERS OF DIFFERENT SEMICONDUCTOR MATERIALS ARE PLACED IN CONTACT WITH ONE ANOTHER. WHEN LIGHT IS ABSORBED THE ENERGY CREATES A FLOW OF ELECTRICITY SIMILAR TO A BATTERY ( DC POWER ). WHEN MANY OF THESE PV CELLS ARE HOOKED TOGETHER THIS IS A SOLAR PANEL OR SOLAR MODULE- NORMALLY PRODUCING FROM 60 TO 200 WATTS PER MODULE. THESE MODULES CAN BE ARRANGED IN STRINGS ( SERIES ) AND THEN ARRAYS ( PARALLEL ). TO CREATE A SMALL OR LARGE ELECTRICAL GENERATION SYSTEM.

THIS DIRECT  CURRENT FROM THE SOLAR MODULES MUST BE CONVERTED TO ALTERNATING CURRENT VIA AN INVERTER. THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY IN INVERTERS PUT POWER INTO THE ELECTRICAL GRID PERFECTLY IN PHASE WITH THE GRID POWER. THE INVERTER WILL NOT FEED POWER INTO THE METER IF THE POWER GRID IS DOWN ( FOR SAFETY REASONS ). THIS FLOW OF POWER WILL SPIN THE ELECTRIC METER BACKWARDS AND YOU CAN BE PAID FOR THIS POWER ( NET METERING ).

A TYPICAL SYSTEM CONTAINS: SOLAR MODULES , COMBINER BOXES , DC DISCONNECT , INVERTER , AC CIRCUIT BREAKERS , CONNECTION TO ELECTRIC METER , AND OPTIONAL DATA ACQUISITION AND MONITORING. WITH A SYSTEM SUCH AS THIS YOU CAN BECOME A CARBON FREE ELECTRICITY PROVIDER.
