A: Here’s a short answer: Sunlight on photovoltaic modules produces direct current (DC) electricity which is converted to alternating current (AC) by a device called an inverter, which is then wired into your main service panel where it feeds your internal power grid. For more details, click here.

Most work is conducted on the site of the array installation (roof or ground) so your operations will likely not be impacted. We coordinate our efforts with your team, from deliveries, securing equipment, to crane usage and we always schedule site material deliveries and other electrical work that could impact operations well in advance and always get advance sign-off on these activities from our customers.
Inverters are also solid-state and require little to no maintenance beyond regularly checking the cooling fan outlets and cleaning when necessary. Mounting hardware is either aluminum or stainless steel or high-quality ASA resin (same as car side mirrors) and is rust-proof.
