• What is a solar electric or photovoltaic (PV) system?
    -

      Spreck uses state-of-the-art PV panels constructed of silicon cells that function as semiconductors which convert light directly into DC electricity. The DC electricity is then converted into AC electricity for household and commercial uses. Spreck uses the most efficient solar panels commercially available that have a 25-year warranty and a 40-year life expectancy.

  • Aren’t solar power systems expensive?
    -

      They used to be. Solar systems have plunged 60% by 2012, with advances in technology and the growth of the industry, as well as with state and federal incentives and innovative financing programs, solar is not only a much more affordable energy option, it actually pays for itself through savings and the additional income your system will generate for you.

  • How long does the installation process take?
    -

      Installation time depends on the size of the system. Once permitting is finalized, the actual installation time for a residential system takes an average of 3 to 5 days to complete, depending on system size and complexity. For a commercial installation, expect a 3-6 month process as fabrication of carports, custom racking solutions and NEMA interconnection applications have longer lead times.
