Sea Wind Solar was founded by Barry Brandt in 1978 when Solar Energy was still primarily being used for residential hot water heating,and pool systems. As the tax incentives dwindled, thermal solar systems were installed less and less even though they were still the most economical way to heat a pool.

Sea Wind Solar was founded by Barry Brandt in 1978 when Solar Energy was still primarily being used for residential hot water heating,and pool systems. As the tax incentives dwindled, thermal solar systems were installed less and less even though they were still the most economical way to heat a pool. Now with the development of photovoltaic solar panels for residential applications it just makes sense environmentally and financially to create your own electricity, and continue to be less dependent on fossil fuels! Everyone should  have access to clean renewable energy. Sea Wind Solar is committed to helping you make that happen now!The discovery of the" photovoltaic effect is first attributed to a French physicist in 1839, but wasn't really  understood until Albert Einstein wrote a comprehensive theoretical study for which he received the nobel prize in 1921. The "photovoltaic effect" refers to photons of light knocking electrons into a higher state of energy to create electricity.Photovoltaic cells are made of special materials called semiconductors such as silicon, which is currently used most commonly. Basically, when light strikes the cell, a certain portion of it is absorbed within the semiconductor material. This means that the energy of the absorbed light is transferred to the semiconductor. The energy knocks electrons loose, allowing them to flow freely.
