Hiring the wrong solar technician can be disappointing especially if they end up mishandling the system and you have to pay another technician to install the system again. Below are the biggest mistakes people make when hiring a solar installer and how to avoid them.
Not Doing Their Homework
A lot of people make the mistake of not doing their homework when hiring a Jamaica solar power installer. Before hiring a company, compare all the installers in your neighborhood and work theirs against your expectations. Also check for their review online, check how they handle dispute cases or customer complaints. Check with the Jamaica Consumers Affairs Commission if there is any complaints against them.
Did you know: Japan consumes more than 50% of the total solar panels produced worldwide
Many people hiring solar installers in Jamaica W.I do not bother to look at the qualification of the installer. Some technicians are not qualified may end up fixing the solar system incorrectly which can lead to costly repairs and spending money again for another solar energy installation company in Jamaica to install another solar system..
Some Jamaica solar panel installers do not have experience; do not make the mistake of hiring an inexperienced installer because one wrong call can cost you a lot of money and headaches.
Did you know?: The solar energy incident on earth just for one hour is more than enough to satisfy the global energy needs for a whole year.
Many make the mistake of not hiring a team without knowing their reputation. Most companies do not have their technicians, so they subcontract. Ensure that the sub contacted team has a supervisor from the company you hired to avoid a breach of contract or damage to you Jamaican property.
Not asking questions about what your warranty covers is another mistake people make. Do not invest your hard-earned money without knowing the exact warranty period. Some companies offer one year or 10 years while others expect you to push your warranty by topping up more money. Make sure you get all clear warrant details to avoid inconveniences in future. Always choose the company with the longest warrant because it means it is reliable. Don't forget to ask about the warranty on your pumping system if any is installed.
We specialize in residential & commercial solar systems and service the entire island of Jamaica.
Did you know: Of all the energy solar panels absorb, only 15 percent can be converted for use. However, don’t be fooled by the 15 percent energy conversion rates for solar panels. Australia receives more than 15,000 times the sunshine it could possibly use; so even a 15 percent conversion rate translates to 2000 more times the energy than we need.
Sometimes when an installer comes to the site, they write down the price of their work. This might lead to future conflicts because the installer might quote a different price upon completion and claim that the initial price was just an estimate of their work. Always enquire if the price is an estimate or a final quote before an installer starts their work.
Sometimes a solar power installer in Jamaica can quote the strength of the power only for you to receive less power. Do not hesitate to ask the installer how they arrived at the quoted power and what will happen if that power production is not guaranteed.
Q: What is photovoltaics (solar electricity) or "PV"?
A: What do we mean by photovoltaics? The word itself helps to explain how photovoltaic (PV) or solar electric technologies work. First used in about 1890, the word has two parts: photo, a stem derived from the Greek phos, which means light, and volt, a measurement unit named for Alessandro Volta (1745-1827), a pioneer in the study of electricity. So, photovoltaics could literally be translated as light-electricity. And that's just what photovoltaic materials and devices do; they convert light energy to electricity, as Edmond Becquerel and others discovered in the 18th Century.
Q: How can we get electricity from the sun here in Jamaica?
A: When certain semiconducting materials, such as certain kinds of silicon, are exposed to sunlight, they release small amounts of electricity. This process is known as the photoelectric effect. The photoelectric effect refers to the emission, or ejection, of electrons from the surface of a metal in response to light. It is the basic physical process in which a solar electric or photovoltaic (PV) cell converts sunlight to electricity.
Sunlight is made up of photons, or particles of solar energy. Photons contain various amounts of energy, corresponding to the different wavelengths of the solar spectrum. When photons strike a PV cell, they may be reflected or absorbed, or they may pass right through. Only the absorbed photons generate electricity. When this happens, the energy of the photon is transferred to an electron in an atom of the PV cell (which is actually a semiconductor).
There are two types of solar panels: Photovoltaic or PV panels. These panels convert sunlight into energy; Solar Thermal panels. These panels work by absorbing the heat. Water is then circulated through it to heat for domestic use purposes and even swimming pools.
With its newfound energy, the electron escapes from its normal position in an atom of the semiconductor material and becomes part of the current in an electrical circuit. By leaving its position, the electron causes a hole to form. Special electrical properties of the PV cell—a built-in electric field—provide the voltage needed to drive the current through an external load (such as a light bulb).

Q: What are the components of a photovoltaic (PV) system?
A: A PV system is made up of different components. These include PV modules (groups of PV cells), which are commonly called PV panels; one or more batteries; a charge regulator or controller for a stand-alone system; an inverter for a utility-grid-connected system and when alternating current (ac) rather than direct current (dc) is required; wiring; and mounting hardware or a framework.

Q: How long do photovoltaic (PV) systems last?
A: A PV system that is designed, installed, and maintained well will operate for more than 20 years. The basic PV module (interconnected, enclosed panel of PV cells) has no moving parts and can last more than 30 years. The best way to ensure and extend the life and effectiveness of your PV system is by having it installed and maintained properly. Experience has shown that most problems occur because of poor or sloppy system installation. Complete form below to speak with the top solar power installers Jamaica has to offer right now.
