Solar System

Solar panels work by allowing particles of light (photons) to knock electrons free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity. This process is called the photovoltaic effect.

A complete solar system includes solar panels, an inverter to convert the direct current (DC) produced by the panels into alternating current (AC) for home use, a mounting system to hold the panels in place, a battery to store excess power (optional), and monitoring software to track system performance.

The size of the solar system you need depends on your average electricity usage, your location’s sun exposure, and the amount of space available for installing panels. Our Domolynx experts will work with you to conduct a comprehensive assessment and design a system tailored to your needs.

The efficiency of a solar system can be influenced by several factors including the quality of the panels, the angle and orientation of the panels, the amount of sunlight exposure, the temperature, and the presence of any shading or obstructions.

Solar systems automatically shut down during blackouts for safety reasons, unless they’re paired with a battery storage system or a specific type of inverter with a secure power supply feature.

Solar systems are quite low-maintenance. However, periodic cleaning and professional inspections can help ensure they continue to operate at peak efficiency.

With proper maintenance, a solar system can last 25 to 30 years or more. However, the inverter may need to be replaced after 10 to 15 years.

Yes, you can expand your system in the future. However, it’s best to design your system with potential future expansion in mind.

Our solar systems come with monitoring software that allows homeowners to track the performance of their solar panels in real-time. This software provides data on how much electricity the solar panels are producing and how much you are consuming, ensuring that your system is functioning correctly and allowing you to optimize your energy use.

Excess power produced by your solar system can be stored in a battery for later use, or in many places, it can be sent back to the grid, earning you credits on your electricity bill.

Yes, winter conditions can impact solar panel efficiency. Snow can cover the panels, reducing their exposure to sunlight and thus decreasing energy production. However, solar panels are typically installed at an angle, which helps the snow slide off. The dark surface of the panels absorbs sunlight, aiding in snow melt. Additionally, solar panels are more efficient in cooler temperatures, so on clear, sunny winter days, your panels can still perform well. Even though production might decrease during snowy periods, over the course of a year, a well-positioned and well-designed solar system in a location like Montreal can still generate a significant proportion of its usual annual output.

Yes, you can charge your electric vehicle using the power generated by your solar system. This can significantly reduce your vehicle’s running costs and carbon footprint.

Solar panels can still generate electricity in cloudy weather or in areas with less sunlight. They may not reach their maximum output, but they will still produce a substantial amount of power. The exact output will depend on the specific type and quality of the solar panels installed.

The space required for a solar system depends on the size of the system. On average, you can expect each solar panel to take up about 15-20 square feet. A typical residential solar system might use between 20 to 30 panels, which means you would need approximately 300 to 600 square feet of roof space.

Installing a solar system can increase the value of your property. Research has shown that homes with solar panels can sell more quickly and at higher prices than similar homes without solar.

Switching to solar power reduces your reliance on fossil fuels, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Solar power is a renewable resource, meaning it doesn’t deplete the earth’s natural resources or contribute to pollution.

A solar system can work with a battery storage system to store excess power generated during the day for use during the night or during a power outage. This stored power can be used when your solar panels aren’t producing electricity, maximizing your use of the power you generate

In Canada, one significant incentive is the Canada Greener Homes Grant. This federal initiative offers up to $5,000 to help homeowners make energy-efficient retrofits to their homes, such as solar panel installation. For instance, any installation bigger than 5kW (12-14 solar panels, depending on their size) would qualify. This initiative also includes EnerGuide evaluations worth up to an extra $600 and expert advice to homeowners to assist in planning their retrofits. Please note, this initiative is time-sensitive and is limited to 700,000 applications. For more information, please visit here.

Battery Storage System

A Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is a technology that allows you to store surplus electricity produced by your solar system for later use. It consists of one or more batteries, a battery inverter, and the associated control and energy management systems.

A BESS enables energy independence by providing backup power during grid outages, reducing dependence on the grid during peak hours, and allowing for the optimal use of solar-generated power by storing surplus energy for use when it’s needed most, such as at night or during cloudy days.

The amount of energy a BESS can store depends on its capacity, which is usually measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). The exact amount varies depending on the specific model and setup of your BESS. Our team can help you determine the right capacity based on your energy needs.

The lifespan of a BESS depends on several factors including the type of battery, the depth of discharge, ambient temperature, and how often the battery is cycled. On average, modern lithium-ion BESS can last between 10 to 15 years.
