There are two basic types of solar energy that can be captured from the sun’s rays: Photovoltaic and Thermal. Some solar systems trap the heat from the sun and turn that into electricity (thermal). The solar panels we use at Sunrun transform the light from the sun into energy (Photovoltaic).
Whether you already have rooftop solar panels or are considering going solar, you’ll want to make sure your panels are working at their full capacity. While solar panels are incredibly durable and are designed to offer many years of worry-free performance, there are ways to make sure you’re getting the most out of your panels.
