Because wind is a source of energy which is non-polluting and renewable, wind turbines create power without using fossil fuels.
Why chose us
Space and Orientation
For maximum performance,your solar electric system needs about 100 square feet of unshaded roof or yard space for every kilowatt of electricity produced.
If your roof is more than 15 years old, you may want to consider replacing it when you purchase your solar electric system.
Shading a panel reduces its performance because it blocks sunlight. The most common items that shade solar panels are trees, nearby buildings and electrical cables.
Most solar electric systems come with a 10-15-year warranty, but maintenance may be required to comply with a manufacturer’s warranty.
Proper maintenance of your system will keep it running smoothly. A&T recommend a yearly maintenance check by your installer,
Using a professional to install your solar electric system can prevent problems with the system caused by improper installation and maintenance.
Types of Solar Panels
Silicon Solar Panels
These rigid panels come in two types: crystalline (made from a single large crystal) and polycrystalline (made from blocks of silicon that contain many small crystals). Silicon solar panels are the most efficient on the market, but also the most expensive.
Thin-Film Solar Panels
These flexible solar panels are made by spreading silicon and other solar producing materials in a very thin layer (about the thickness of a human hair) directly onto a large plate that is usually made of glass or ceramics. Less efficient than silicon solar panels, thin-film solar panels are also less expensive to produce.
Future Solar Panels
New solar materials that are emerging include lightweight foil-based panels, plastic collectors, and hybrid solar electric/solar water heating collectors. The new hybrid systems capture hot air from the solar electric panels and use it to heat water. Except for the hybrid systems, most of the new materials are not available to home-owners.
