Do you have a solar water heating system or a solar electric system that does no longer work? Give us a call, we can inspect the system and make repairs! This last year repairs and modifications were made on several solar electric systems that got them producing.
Solar Heat and Electricity
Basically yes, sunlight (solar) can be used to generate electric power. Small solar electric generators are scattered around Montana, some of these are connected to the utility grid, others are independent of the utility grid. Believe it or not, there are grid tied solar electric systems in Montana that have been working for over twenty three years. The reality is that some older solar electric systems may have had component failures that decrease electric energy output. It is likely that the solar modules “panels” still are producing at close to their original output, but charge controllers, inverters or other components in a solar electric system may have failed. Further, solar modules are not prone to fail, but module failures do occur.
