Solar Panels

Illinois Electric Cooperative

Solar panels absorb sunlight as a source of energy to generate electricity. The majority of solar panels can produce eight to ten kilowatts of energy per square foot.


Illinois Electric Cooperative

Solar Racking is used to fix solar panels on surfaces like roofs, building facades, or the ground. There are a variety of solar mounting systems available.


A Solar Inverter converts the variable direct current (DC) output of a solar panel into a utility frequency alternating current that can be fed into a commercial electrical grid or used by a local, off-grid electrical network.


Solar panel wire (which is the same as electrical wire) is categorized mainly based on it’s conductor type.


Solar Metering allows consumers who generate some or all of their own electricity to use that electricity anytime, instead of when it is generated.
