Can I use a solar panel without a battery?
So long as you are connected to an electrical grid, the answer is yes – you can use a solar panel without a battery. That being said, grid-tied solar systems tend to be shut off during power outages so as to prevent electric backflow from hurting utility workers. This also negates the “immunity” that solar-powered homes have against outages, since solar panels equipped with batteries may utilize the excess energy stored in the batteries during such periods.
How long can a house run on solar power alone?
Technically, so long as your home is exposed continuously to clear sunlight that is falling upon an accurately designed solar system, a home can run as long as your solar panels last. Most solar panels have a lifespan of 25-30 years. You can expect overcast weather to reduce your system’s potency. Also, if you incorporate a new electric-powered item in your home that significantly increases usage, your current solar panels may not be sufficient to fully power your home. Solar power is a great source of energy, but one of the most important parts of ensuring a properly functioning system is to ensure it’s installed adequately and is correctly sized.
Do solar panels work at night?
While solar panels will not actually produce energy at night, they may utilize excess generated energy from the daytime. Solar panels will become “inactive” during the nighttime, stopping them from producing any electricity. Because they utilize the photovoltaic effect, they are only activated by sunlight and cannot generate power without active light.Excess energy created during the daytime can be used as surplus power, which can then provide electricity during cloudy/overcast days or during the night. This requires a net metering program or a solar battery.
Are solar panels worth it in Scarborough?
Depending on where you live in Scarborough and the specs of your residential home, solar panels may be worth it. Scarborough has comfortable summers and can have some temperate days in the winter, making solar panels worth it for certain styles of homes.All in all, a properly installed solar system can help a homeowner in Scarborough save up to 50% on their total energy costs. September and May in Scarborough are the months that tend to see the most amount of sunshine, and December sees the least.Ask CMI advantage about our solar panel services and whether solar panels would be worth it where you live.
Is installing solar panels cheaper than electricity?
The actual upfront cost of installing solar panels in Scarborough is more expensive than purchasing electricity from a utility provider. However, with its energy-saving capabilities and net metering, the total cost of installing solar panels ends up being offset within about 8-10 years. This is pretty incredible, considering solar panels last 25-30 years!

I was surprised at how quickly CMI Solar was able to install my EV charger. It looks great on my garage wall and charges my Tesla very quickly. Now I never have to pay to charge my car again!- Joel Smith
Great customer service and they kept their word!!! CMI Solar communicated where we were in the process of getting our panels, what step was next AND time frames in which we could expect things to happen. If we had any questions, they always promptly answered our calls. The guys who came to install the panels and came for inspection were very nice, respectful and prompt. I honestly couldn’t say anything bad about CMI Solar. We’re also happy that we chose to go solar with them.- Paula Waller
