Frequently Asked Questions

What is Green Energy?
Green energy is the term used to describe sources of energy that are considered to be environmentally friendly and non-polluting, such as geothermal, wind, solar, and hydro. Solar energy can be generated in two forms, namely electricity and heat.
What is a PV cell?
Solar cells or PV-cells are used to convert solar radiation into electricity. Photovoltaic systems release no greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and they don't even need direct sunlight to produce energy; they just need daylight and this means they can operate even during cloudy and less bright days or in foggy weather.

Did you know? The PV panel output is better in colder climates.
Why should I use Green Energy?
People may decide to buy green energy systems for a variety of reasons. Many want to help preserve the earth's finite fossil-fuel resources and reduce pollution. Choosing green energy systems is a powerful and direct way for you to help protect the environment, and make a long-lasting commitment to the planet's future.

Some people like the security of renewable energy, because it makes them less vulnerable to future increases in electricity and fossil fuel prices. Others are interested because renewable energy systems can provide emergency power in case of storms or other power system failures. Finally, some people just don't like paying utility bills and appreciate the independence that renewable energy provides.
What does it mean to "Go Green"?
Going green means living within a balance that must exist between you and your environment, a balance that humanity has too often let fall to the wayside in recent times. It means to minimize your impact on this earth, and offset or even eliminate your use of nonrenewable resources.
