As a locally owned and operated company in the GTA. Kinetic Solar has had a long-standing partnership with AVVIA Renewable Energy offering high quality Flushmount racking. Kinetic Solar offers a one of a kind flashing system that slides underneath shingles, which is great for solar panels in Ontario.
You can produce electricity using solar panels for 30 years. When purchased, they come with a warranty of 25 years. Currently, it’s tough to find anything in the market that lasts as long as these panels thus illustrating further the longevity and durability.
Each solar panel contains numerous solar cells that capture the sun’s rays and convert them into electrical energy. Once each of the solar cells is exposed to the sun’s rays, the sun’s energy is then transferred into electrons in the material surface. The excess energy allows the escape of electrons from their atoms and their movement produces electric current. The movement of electrons is referred to as photovoltaic effect (PV).
Polysilicon (the main material used to construct solar cells) is refined from silica sands and quarts. The material comes in various grades each of which can be used to create solar cells of varying quality. Currently, crystalline silicone is considered the best with regards to cost and efficiency. To hold them in place, lamination using a plastic substrate is used which also protects the electrical connections. The solar panels are then sealed using a backing material with the tempered glass on the top while an aluminum channel is used to frame it. Finally, a junction box that contains electrical connections is placed on the back part of the solar panel.
Each year, solar panels lose at least 0.5% to about 0.75% power output because of the degradation of the solar cells among other factors. Therefore, if installed today, within 2 decades, they will produce at least 85% of their original electricity. When calculating your yearly production of power as well as microFit income, you should consider the output reduction. Therefore any financial data and quotes from installer and solar panel providers reflect that fact.
Besides that, the solar panel should work for at least 30 years, if installed correctly and there isn’t any solar cell failure attributed to manufacturing defects, thermal stress, cracking and delamination.
As long as they are not covered in snow, your solar panels should work perfectly. Note that in the winter sun the solar panels can produce more or the same amount of power than in the summer days when they are hotter and definitely less efficient.
When calculating the solar energy production, we consider the roof slope to determine the expected loss because of snow. Keep in mind that at least 84% of electricity will be done at least ¾ of the year during fall, summer and spring when there are longer days. Therefore, any losses in the cold season are definitely negligible.
