When sunlight strikes solar panels, it acts as an extremely powerful light-catcher. They absorb the rays of the sun.

Creation of Electricity: Within the panels are small components known as “solar cells,” which become energized when exposed to sunlight in the same way as if they had just had a large cup of coffee.
Electricity Flow: The stimulated cells produce electricity. It functions similarly to a flow of little electrical particles, or electrons, which can power appliances in your house.

Use or Store the Electricity: You can use this electricity right away to power your appliances and lights, or you can store it in batteries for later use. It is solar energy that is clean and renewable!
In simple terms, solar panels capture sunlight and turn it into electricity to power your home, gadgets, and more.

During these times where there is little to no sunlight available, our solar rooftop systems cannot generate electricity. At nighttime, Solar Panels does not produce electricity, instead, they rely on the stored energy in batteries or other sources of electricity.

On Cloudy days, solar panels generate less electricity, but it doesn’t stop working if there’s still some sunlight peeking through the clouds.

On Rainy days, the panels are particularly affected by the damp weather and decreased sunshine. Raindrops can scatter and obstruct sunlight, momentarily decreasing the solar panels’
efficiency.

It’s crucial to remember that solar panels work best in direct sunlight, thus bad weather will reduce their output. On cloudy or wet days, however, solar systems may generally still help you meet your electricity needs and lower your total energy expenses if you have the right backup plans in place.

Cost per watt is a common unit of measurement for solar panel prices. Solar panels may currently be purchased in the Philippines for between PHP 40 and PHP 70 per watt on average.

Depending on market fluctuations, technology used, and other considerations, this price range may vary.

Calculate Your Energy Usage: Start by reviewing your utility bills to determine your average monthly and annual energy use in kilowatt-hours (kWh). This data can help you determine how much electricity your solar system consumes.

Consider Your Location: The amount of sunlight in your location is an important factor to consider. If you live in a sunny area, you may require fewer panels to meet your energy requirements. To compensate for reduced sunlight, a larger system may be necessary.

System Efficiency: Since solar panel systems are not entirely efficient, their efficiency rating must be considered. The average efficiency of most panels is 15-20%, which indicates that they convert that percentage of sunlight into power.

Roof Space: Determine the amount of available roof space.

It is strongly recommended that you contact PAVI Green, who can perform an on-site examination and provide a more accurate system size recommendation based on your particular needs.

Annual cleaning of solar panels is recommended to ensure maximum sunlight absorption. The Philippines has a tropical climate with strong rains that can help wipe away debris and dust.

Keep in mind that the specifics of solar panel maintenance can vary depending on factors such as location, weather, and installation quality. Consult with PAVI Green to ensure that your solar panels continue to function properly and offer clean, sustainable electricity.

Solar panel systems are frequently marketed with a variety of warranties and guarantees to provide customers with confidence in the equipment’s performance and durability. Specific warranties may vary between manufacturers and solar panel installers; however, the following are the most common types of warranties and guarantees:

Panel Warranty (Product Warranty): The majority of solar panels come with a product warranty, often known as a panel warranty, that protects the panels from manufacturing problems and premature failure. Most Tier-1 manufacturers offer warranties that last 12-15 years.

Performance Warranty: Solar panels are commonly marketed with a performance warranty, which guarantees a specific level of power output for a specified period of time. These warranties frequently ensure that the panels will retain a certain percentage of their initial efficiency after 25-30 years, typically 80% or higher.
