Frequently Asked Questions

Residential renewable and alternative energy solutions are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners throughout Chicago, IL and the surrounding area. But many are still unsure of the intricacies and advantages of renewable energy. If you fall into that category, please call Kapital Electric’s knowledgeable team for more information. We have answered a couple of frequently asked questions below.

What Is Renewable Energy and How Is It Generated?

Renewable energy is an innovative way to power one’s home or commercial property. It harnesses power from the sun, wind, or water to create electricity without producing harmful greenhouse gases. Many of our solutions rely on PV solar panels that comprise a series of cells designed to collect energy from the sun. The sun’s rays dislodge the electrons to generate electricity. Our systems feature inverters, which convert the sun’s energy from a direct current (DC) into an alternating current (AC) compatible with your electrical system. Any excess power you generate is sent back to the utility company, thus saving you money and protecting the environment.

Why Is Renewable Energy Important?

Renewable energy is vital to conserving natural energy resources and protecting the environment. It enhances energy security and minimizes the risk of fuel spills while also saving you money every month. Furthermore, because renewable energy does not require transportation, it promises greater price stability and less labor, which leads to economic development.
