Solar energy is one of the most promising forms of renewable energy. Solar panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) cells, convert sunlight into electricity. They are an important part of the energy revolution, helping homeowners and businesses reduce their electricity bills and become more energy independent.
At ACR Solar, we understand the importance of solar energy and strive to provide the highest quality solar panels to our customers. We are committed to helping you make the most of your solar investment and are passionate about ensuring your satisfaction.
Solar panels are made up of many small photovoltaic cells, which are connected together to form a solar panel. These cells are made from materials such as silicon that convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. The DC electricity is then routed to an inverter, which converts the DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity that is compatible with your home’s electrical system.
Solar panels are usually mounted on the roof of a house, in a field, or on the ground. The ideal location for solar panels is an area that receives plenty of sunlight throughout the day. The best angle to mount solar panels is on a south-facing roof, at an angle of 35-45 degrees.
At ACR Solar, we offer a variety of solar panel systems to meet the needs of our customers. Our systems are designed to be easy to install and maintain and are designed to maximize the amount of solar energy that is produced.
When selecting a solar panel system, there are a few things to consider. The type of solar panel system you need will depend on the size of your home, your energy needs, and your budget.

When your solar panels are clean, they are more efficient at harnessing the sun’s energy.

ACR Solar can safely clean and maintain your home’s solar power system.

ACR Solar can help you from beginning to end, following the state mandated energy standards in your project.
Propylene glycol is the most common heat transfer fluid in the freeze protected closed loop solar water heating systems used in this area. These fluids degrade overtime and, just like with your car, should be checked and changed every 5 years to properly maintain your system. These systems are pressurized, so it is advised for homeowners to have a licensed expert perform maintenance. ACR Solar can professionally maintain your home’s solar water heating system.
