Installing solar panels on your roof is one of the best ways to utilise renewable energy while saving money on your electricity bills. The technology behind solar energy has improved dramatically in recent years, making solar power an accessible and affordable option for homeowners. With solar panels, you can convert free sunlight into electricity to power your home. Any excess electricity that your solar panels generate can even be sent back into the grid, earning you credit on your utility bill through net metering programs.
The benefits of going solar are numerous. Solar energy is clean and renewable, producing no carbon emissions. Solar panels can slash your electric bill by 50-90%, providing decades of free electricity after the initial system cost. The return on investment for solar panels is now around 6-8 years. On top of that, home values increase by approximately 4% for every 1 kW of solar installed.

Solar Power Installation for Your Home
How solar energy panels work boils down to fundamental physics. Photovoltaic solar panels are constructed cells made with semiconducting materials – typically silicon – that convert light directly into power that can be used to generate electricity.
The photons within the electromagnetic radiation from the sun heat the semi-conductive cells within a solar panel, and the increased temperature causes electrons to start moving around. This rapid movement then creates an electrical current. This process is called the photovoltaic effect.
The generated direct current (DC) electricity then passes through an inverter where it is converted into a usable alternating current (AC) and delivered to your home. It can power anything in your home that runs on electricity, from your toaster to your TV.
Solar panels are designed with an anti-reflective coating to help increase the amount of sunlight they absorb. They also typically come encased in glass to protect the cells better.
The insulation within the casing is to help regulate the temperature inside the solar PV panel.
If a solar panel gets too hot, its efficiency will drop.
