Alternative Energy from the Sun and Wind
Solar Photo-voltaic (PV)
Eagle Mountain is currently refining some world-class solar photovoltaic (PV) systems designed to enable you to capture the sun’s energy to power your house.
Photovoltaic systems convert sunlight directly into electricity that can provide a significant portion of your house’s electricity needs. PV systems connect to your building’s electric service panel to offset your utility usage.
When your PV system generates more electricity than your home is using at the time (such as during sunny weekdays when you’re at work), your electric meter will spin backwards, giving you a credit for power that you are generating back into the utility grid – a process known as net-metering.
A four-kilowatt PV system on the south-facing roof of a house can produce about 4,600 kilowatts of electricity per year; typically offsetting 70 percent of the home’s total electricity consumption. The average home in New York State uses about 600 kilowatt hours per month of electricity.
We hope to have our solar PV products listed on this Web site in late 2008.
