Thinking about "Going Solar"? Let us help.
When "Going Solar", Therma Breeze doesn't like to keep our customers in the dark (no pun intended). We believe they should have a general understanding of how solar energy systems work. Sunlight is loaded with photons. Think of these as little packages of solar energy. Photovoltaic panels turn this sun power into electricity. They are usually made from silicon and small amounts of boron.
When the photons from sunlight hit a silicon molecule, they knock loose one of its free-floating electrons. This electron hits another silicon molecule, shunting its electron out of its molecule. This starts a chain reaction, much like one domino striking another and another, until the final result is what is known as a flow of electrons, or an electrical current.
This solar electrical current then flows through the electrical circuits of your house.
