Installing solar panels and batteries on your home comes with many excellent benefits. Solar power is better for the environment and can save you significant money on electricity costs over time. Solar panels generate clean electricity from sunlight, reducing your reliance on utility-provided power. Any excess energy your panels produce gets fed back into the grid for bill credits. With enough solar capacity, you could potentially eliminate your power bill entirely!
Solar battery storage allows you to store energy from your panels for use at night. With solar plus battery storage, you can take control of your electricity supply and depend less on the grid. Adding batteries prevents wasted solar energy by capturing excess generated electricity to be used as needed. You can store up power when demand is low and use it during peak times. While utility rates fluctuate, solar locks in your energy costs at a predictable rate over decades. Any extra power produced helps offset your bill at that same rate. Solar power provides long-term savings while also benefiting the planet.
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.
