Solar Photovoltaic energy systems convert the sun’s rays directly into electricity. Generally speaking, rooftop panels produce electricity for a residence or commercial building, with excess energy flowing into the electrical grid. Other exciting applications include golf carts, sailboats, and automobiles. Due to new federal, state, and local incentive programs, demand for PV systems is at an all-time high.
