How Your Solar Works
Solar Electric Systems utilize a process called Photovoltaic or PV to convert light into electricity. Solar Thermal or Water / Refrigerant systems use the sun’s radiated heat to create hot water. PEP Solar is Arizona’s first residential solar electric installer from 1981 although we are certified in many energy saving products.
There are no polluting devices installed, once the system is installed the solar electric system produce quiet, consistent, pollution free electricity for your home, business, and/or electric car.
Usually the amount of roof space is enough to generate a match to your energy usage. In some cases your restriction starts from the shading on your roof or north facing roof tops. Most of the time we can set up a system to match your expectations.
Systems vary in size, based on the number of panels you need. For example, a 6kW system will need approx. 460 sq. ft. slightly bigger than an average U.S. Living room.
A roof top view to the south is a good start. PEP Solar can conduct a Site Survey to discover the best energy efficiency and system design for your location.
Efficiency of panels as a selling point is often misleading, as efficiency plays no role in producing more power. Efficiency only reflects the physical size of a module & price. As an example: a 200 watt 15% efficient panel vs. 200 watt 20% efficient panel — the 20% efficient panel produces the same 200 watts as the 15% just in a 25% less space — typically at about 20% more in cost. Our Mage Solar panels have great efficiency, but they have something even better: 30 year power guarantee which means you are getting more manufactured savings.
The system is attached to the roof with city approved hardware for each specific roof type. Each penetration by PEP Solar is designed with several code required fail safes ensuring your roof will not leak and the system is wind rated 120 miles per hour. All parts of a Solar Electric, Solar Water Heating, Solar Thermal Air Conditioning system, and so forth are UL listed and meet all standards.
A typical system will weigh approximately 2.61 -

No. Solar is unique in renewable energy in the fact that it requires no to very little maintenance, as it has no moving parts. You may need a simple garden hose to spray them off once in awhile if it get dusty.

Solar Panels are rated to survive a direct hit of 1” hailstone at wind speeds in access of 55 mph. Industry wide there has been little report of failure due to hail storms. Panel replacement would be covered under most insurance policies.
