What is Solar?
Solar panels are a practical, efficient resource for production of "free" energy that reduces the dependence upon standard peak demand utilities. Unobtrusive and easily integrated into the architectural design of a building, they are available in a variety of technologies including modules of thin film, mono and multicrystalline cells, amorphous silicon, CIGS, encapsulated in plastic and glass frames, laminates, and solar concentrators. By harnessing the sun's renewable energy they are a non-polluting energy alternative to coal and oil. Solar panels also have a proven service life in excess of 30 years, outlasting nonrenewable energy sources.
