Solar Energy Education


There’s no doubt solar technology is capturing a lot of attention these days by businesses, homeowners and the general public. While solar power will remain an excellent source of green, zero-carbon, energy, these technologies continue forward with increasing efficiency and are more integratable with buildings and surroundings.

Let New England Renewable Energy Systems help select, design, and install the right solar water heating and photovoltaic (PV) energy producing products for your specific personal and community needs.

Solar technologies capture readily available sunlight energy to produce hot water and electricity. Solar hot water systems are typically closed loop systems that capture thermal energy directly from sunlight to heat water.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are comprised of cells made from silicon and other materials. Photons from sunlight agitate or excite electrons found in the silicon; as these electrons begin moving they are conducted or “routed” to current “I”, which is the basis for electricity. In this way sunlight is converted to electrical energy.

PV technology is rapidly advancing and can be found in a widening variety of products including traditional PV arrays as well as integrated into commercial and residential building materials. PV technology is also becoming more efficient, and produced in greater quantities to help drive material and manufacturing costs down.

All this combined with government incentives make solar technology more affordable than ever before. And more importantly, solar technology will help drive your energy costs lower, with greater predictability and profitability for homes and businesses.
