What is Element Energy Systems (E2SYS)?

Element Energy Systems (E2SYS) is a renewable energy company based on Long Island, New York, specializing in solar energy systems, energy storage solutions, and wind power turbine installations.

How does solar energy work?

Solar energy systems utilize solar photovoltaic (PV) technology to convert sunlight into electricity. Solar panels, made up of crystalline silicon cells, capture sunlight and generate direct current (DC) electricity. An inverter then converts the DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is compatible with standard household appliances and the electrical grid.

What are the benefits of investing in a solar PV system?

Firstly, it allows you to achieve energy independence by generating your own electricity from the sun. Secondly, it helps reduce your utility bills by offsetting your reliance on traditional grid electricity. Additionally, solar energy is clean and environmentally friendly, reducing your carbon footprint and contributing to a sustainable future. Lastly, there are various state and federal incentives available, such as the New York Megawatt Block Incentive and the federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC), which make solar installations more affordable.

What is an energy storage system, and why is it important?

Energy storage systems play a crucial role in balancing energy supply and demand, enhancing grid stability, and integrating renewable energy sources into the power grid. These systems capture excess energy when it is available and release it when needed, addressing the intermittency and variability of renewable energy generation. 

Are there any laws or regulations for solar installations and wind power turbines on the East Coast?

Yes, there are laws and regulations governing solar installations and wind power turbines on the East Coast. These regulations may vary by state and municipality. E2SYS is well-versed in the local regulations and can guide you through the permitting and compliance processes.

How long do solar PV systems and wind power turbines last?

Solar PV systems typically have a lifespan exceeding 25 years, with the panels being highly reliable and durable due to the absence of moving parts. Wind power turbines can last 20 years or more, depending on maintenance and environmental factors.

Can I still use traditional grid electricity with a solar or wind power system?

Yes, you can still use traditional grid electricity in conjunction with a solar or wind power system. During times when your renewable energy system does not produce enough electricity to meet your needs, you can draw electricity from the grid. Similarly, excess energy generated by your system can be fed back into the grid, potentially earning credits or compensation through net metering or feed-in tariff programs, depending on local regulations.
