MAGE – New Energy For A New World®


Dad, how long will the sun last?

Delivered daily, free and forever The sun’s energy is reliable, renewable and abundant. EVERY MINUTE, enough sunlight falls on our earth to meet the whole world’s energy demands for one entire year! Add to this MAGE SOLAR’s sophisticated photovoltaic (PV) technology and you are ready to harness this FREE energy for yourself. America is truly blessed by the sun: there is hardly another country in the world with better sun radiation to power a photovoltaic system. Clearly, utilizing renewable solar energy is more than just an environmentally friendly move. A well planned PV system provides you with a significant economical gain. It also gives you the freedom and independence you have always wanted from the ever increasing electric power bill. How long will the sun keep shining? We’ll tell you: about four and a half billion years, or for about another 180 million generations.

Solar radiation per year in US kWh/m2/Year 1200 - 1300 1400 - 1500 1600 - 1700 1800 - 1900 2000 - 2100 2200 - 2300 2400 - 2500




Is it difficult? No, I’ll show you.

Solar is as easy as 1,2,3


Your MAGE SOLAR速 panels absorb the sunlight and converts it into direct current (DC). This will happen even on cloudy days. The generated electricity is forwarded through wiring to a transformer, called the inverter.


The inverter then transforms the DC current into an alternating energy (AC), the kind of electricity used by your household appliances and the utility grid. You are now powering your home by the sun!


The solar electrical system is connected to the utility grid through your meter. When your home generates more power than it can use, your meter will actually spin backwards. This extra energy goes to the power company allowing you night time credits .


Solar panels absorb sunlight and covert it to DC electricity


This energy is forwarded to the inverter where the DC electricity is converted into AC electricity


The meter provides data about the energy produced, used or sent to the utility
