Photovoltaic (PV) devices convert the suns energy into DC
(Direct Current) electricity. With the appropriate power conversion
equipment, PV systems can produce AC (alternating current) electricity which is
compatible with any conventional appliances.
Common uses for simple systems include:
- To charge batteries
Regulatory and financial incentives, such as tax credits, low
interest loans, grants, special utility rates, and technical assistance
to encourage the installation of photovoltaic systems are all available,
though they vary from region to region.

PV systems do not burn fuel and have no
moving parts, making them clean and silent.
PV systems do not produce atmospheric emissions or greenhouse gases that
have detrimental effects on the planet.
