How Solar Works

Inverters

The inverter(s) convert DC electricity from the solar array to AC electricity used in our homes and businesses.

Solar Panels

The photovoltaic (PV) cells convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity

Utility Grid

Your home remains connected to the grid in order to provide you electricity when your system doesn’t produce enough and to accept your system’s surplus energy.

Net Meter

The net meter tracks both the electricity you consume and the electricity you send back to the grid. You build up credits during the summer that can be used during the winter.

Inverters

Banner Power Solutions uses string and micro-inverters for their inverting, optimizing and monitoring abilities.

Micro-inverters are our primary choice because they:

  • Mount directly under the solar modules and require no wall space.
  • Optimize individual modules to maximize system production.
  • Work excellent in both sunny and shady conditions.
  • Allow system owner and contractor to monitor entire system and individual modules for performance.
  • Have a 25 year warranty.

Racking

Banner Power Solutions uses Ironridge Racking to attach the solar modules to the roof. Ironridge Racking is:

  • Stronger railing allows us to spread mounting brackets, reducing penetrations by 30%.
  • Designed and tested in the most extreme conditions for Washington.
  • Certified to meet the latest engineering and building codes for our region.
  • Comes in silver or black depending on customer’s preference.
  • Can attach to any roof or surface type.

Monitoring

Banner Power Solutions solar installations can include monitoring capabilities for the solar owner. Solar owners can check in on the performance of their solar PV system

  • Monitoring ensures that modules are at top performance. If otherwise, the owner will receive email notifications.
  • Monitoring can be completed on a single module or total system level.
  • Receive daily, weekly, monthly production data reports for any date range you choose.
