Main Solar Panel System Components

Solar Panels

Solar panels (also known as PV panels) are the most vital of all the solar power components. Residential solar panels consist of on average 60 solar cells, while most commercial solar panels contain 72 solar cells, and are what collect and convert the light from the sun into electrical energy.


Solar panels generate Direct Current (DC) electricity but almost everything you use in your house uses Alternating Current (AC) electricity. This is why solar systems require an inverter. Microinverters are mounted directly behind each solar panel and convert the DC electricity from each solar panel into usable AC electricity.

Solar Flashing

Flashing is an essential part of a roofing system. Its role is to keep your roof airtight and waterproof by sealing up places that are vulnerable to water. But in the case of solar panels, it’s the point where the solar racking connects to a pitched roof that is the greatest concern.

Racking and Mounting Equipment

Rooftop solar panel systems will have a racking and mounting equipment, which will hold the solar panels stationary on your roof. Their design is essential to make sure the panels get maximum sunlight while being designed for wind loads applicable to your region.

Production Monitoring

Our exclusive microinverter supplier features a complementary monitoring software, Enphase MyEnlighten, that you can use to track your solar energy production from your smartphone, tablet, or computer. You’ll be able to ensure your system is functioning optimally and view how many kilowatt-hours you are producing every day.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Simply put—no. During the free consultation, we’ll outline precisely what you can expect to get from our relationship. With many of our programs, there is no money down and you’ll be able to see immediate savings once your solar system is activated.

No need to worry if your panels need fixing. An iron-clad product warranty and worry-free maintenance are built into your solar agreement. We’ll keep your system functioning optimally and will monitor it to detect and resolve any issues that may arise.

When you go solar, there will be times that your system isn’t generating quite enough power—like after sunset. The majority of solar customers remain connected to the electric grid for easy access to power after dark.

The reason for a 20 or 25-year term is to keep your rate per kWh as low as possible. Your solar savings are either locked in or predictable so that you can enjoy peace of mind for years to come.

The good news is that when your solar panels produce more power than your home can use, the excess electricity is automatically sent back into the grid. The meter actually spins backwards, building a ‘bank’ of credits with your utility company. The process is referred to as “net metering,” and is another financial perk of home solar.

For the safety of workers that are fixing power outages, it is a utility regulation for solar power systems to shut off during blackouts if there is a connection to the grid.

If you sell your home, you can transfer your solar agreement to the new homeowner pursuant to the terms of your solar service agreement. The process is very easy and offers electricity savings, which is a great selling point when your home is on the market. The Momentum Solar Customer Experience team will walk you through the entire process, but it’s important that you contact us by email at or by phone at 1-800-552-8300 as soon as you decide to sell your home.

We offer complimentary maintenance and monitoring so that we can identify issues and fix them accordingly is provided as part of many of our programs. We also offer real-time monitoring software to all of our customers that will allow you to track your energy usage from your smartphone or computer, so you’ll know if you are not producing as much as you should be.

How Solar Energy Works

When making the commitment to install a solar power system on your property, you may want to know how you’ll be generating clean electricity:

  • Sunlight hits your solar panels and creates energy.
  • The energy is converted into electricity.
  • The electricity is used as needed and excess power is sent back to your bidirectional meter.
  • Excess power is sent from your meter to the utility grid and builds a “bank” of credits.
  • Your utility company provides electricity at night after your “bank” of credits are used.
