Q1. Why go Solar?

  • Solar reduces your electricity bills and pays for itself.
  • Going solar means you are hedging against the rising cost of electricity. On average, electricity prices have been going up 5% every year. 
  • Going solar means you are producing your own electricity. It’s like having a clean power plant on your roof. 
  • Solar is good for the planet because it helps curb the effects of global warming. Solar helps reduce green house gases by offsetting fossil fuel-based electricity production such as coal and natural gas power plants.

Q2. What are the Major components of a Solar Power System?

A typical Solar Power System has the following major components:

  • Photovoltaic (PV) Modules
  • PV mounting structure
  • Inverter
  • Battery Bank (Optional)
  • Charge Controller
  • Balance of System such as cables, combiner box, switches, relays etc.

Q3. How does the Solar Power System works ?

The solar PV modules convert the Sunlight falling on them to electrical energy (Direct Current). The inverter converts this DC into Alternating Current (AC) and sends it to the load. If Battery bank is installed, the system charges the battery bank too. The power stored in the battery can be used when the Solar Power System is not producing sufficient current such as during night time/cloudy days.

Q4. How do I know if my location receives enough solar energy to make electricity?

We conduct a complete site examination, including shade analysis, to determine whether solar is a viable solution for your location(s). Solar Power systems require either a large, flat structure such as a rooftop or available ground space. Syndicated consulting and project management teams are able to conduct site evaluations FREE OF CHARGE to determine the feasibility of any project.

Q5. Are there any charges for site assessment?

There are no charges for the site assessment. You are under no obligation to buy the system from us.

Q6. Is solar cost effective?

Very much so! If you look at solar as an investment, a solar system has low risk with a high return over the 25-year lifetime.

Q7. Why should I buy a system now rather than later?

The current photovoltaic market is quite volatile due to varying supply and increasing demand. This means prices may increase or decrease in the near future in varying degrees. It is true that the cost of solar technology has been trending down, and will probably decrease in the long run. But there are many financial incentives available now and there is no guarantee they will still be available in the future. 

Q8. How efficient are photovoltaic solar panels? Does it matters?

Currently, the efficiency of a solar panel can range between 12-18%.  The greater the efficiency, the less space it needs to produce the same amount of electricity compared to the electric production of a panel with a lower efficiency. But at the end of the day, a watt is still a watt, regardless of the solar panel’s efficiency. 

Q9. How much solar energy will I produce?

There are many variables to consider for accurate estimation. These include the pitch and orientation of the roof, as well as the total system size of the solar array. A south-facing roof is the ideal location to put a solar system but you can also have a system on a east and west-facing roof. As a rule of thumb, a 1000-watt system will produce about 1550 KWh annually.   

Q10. How much electricity do I use?

You can figure out your electricity consumption by looking at your previous monthly electricity bills. Look for the amount of kilowatt hours (Units) consumed. 

Q11. How often does a solar system need to be serviced?

Once a solar system is installed, there is minimal maintenance. One just need to clean the PV modules to get rid of dust/bird droppings also cleaning of battery terminals is required. A solar system can run for 25 years without any major servicing, so operating costs are very minimal.  

Q12. What kind of warranty does a solar system have?

Most solar modules are covered by a 25-year power warranty. The inverters are typically covered under a 5-10-year warranty depending on manufacturer. Brilliant Energy gives customers a 1-year installation warranty. Overall, you are well-covered.   

Q13. Will the solar system be damaged by bad weather?

The complete system and solar panels are designed to withstand up to 100 mph winds. Solar panels are also designed to withstand 1-inch hail. So you don’t have to worry about the weather conditions.

Q14. Who does Brilliant Energy partner with?

We work with best entities as partners in the solar technology and solar equipment supplier communities. Across this spectrum of industry participants, we help drive industry standards to make solar a meaningful resource for energy supply. 

Q15. How are  systems installed by Brilliant Energy different from other solar offers?

We use best quality, tried and tested components that are fitted in our systems. We use world class materials and execute the project with professional quality work. The systems are provided with 1 year installation guarantee.
