Frequently Asked Questions
Questions we commonly receive about solar panels include:
Solar panels work by converting sunlight into electricity using photovoltaic (PV) cells. When sunlight hits the PV cells, they generate a flow of electrons, creating a direct current (DC) that can power electrical devices or be stored in batteries for later use.
The number of solar panels needed to power a house depends on various factors, including the amount of electricity needed, the efficiency of the panels, and the amount of sunlight available. On average, a typical American home might require a solar panel system that ranges from 10 to 20 panels, depending on their energy consumption.
Solar panels have a life span of around 25 to 30 years, but this can vary depending on factors such as their quality, installation, and maintenance. Routine inspections, cleaning, and repairs can help extend the life of the panels.
Yes, there is a Maryland tax credit for solar panels. The state offers a tax credit for residential and commercial solar energy systems. However, there are certain eligibility requirements and limitations that apply.
