Did you know you can save up to 80 percent on the cost to heat the water inside your home or business?
Photovoltaic transforms traditional water-heating methods through clean and affordable electricity technology.
If you’ve ever wondered about photovoltaic systems and technology for water heating, we put together a list of five frequently asked questions that will give insights into this on-demand technology.
How does solar convert into electricity?
Small bursts of energy are released when semiconducting materials such as types of silicon are exposed to sunlight.
Known as the photoelectric effect, this process describes how solar electric or photovoltaic (PV) cells convert sunlight into electricity.
Without the cells, the light strike particles may just bounce off or be absorbed with little to no effect.
The cells, however, harness energy from the photon, exchanging it for an electron in an atom of the PV cell. This gives rise to the magic of solar power heating.
What is the lifespan of a photovoltaic system?
Photovoltaic systems are designed for the long haul.
Once installed, they will operate for over two decades with minimal maintenance.
The basic components of photovoltaic technology, including what’s interconnected and enclosed, have no moving parts, and can last over 30 years.
With Aztec Solar, you can be ensured that the system will be expertly installed so it can surpass average life expectancy.
How large of a system do I need?
Depending on your energy needs, the scope of the system will vary.
The amount of electricity needed to heat up water and the size of your roof are major factors.

What are the precise components involved with a photovoltaic system?
These include PV modules (groups of cells) that are commonly referred to as the PV panels.
Batteries, a charge controller for some systems, an inverter for when a direct current is needed, wiring, and mounting and framework hardware complete the system.
Why should I switch to photovoltaic technology?
