We did not know much about solar panels before talking with Sharp Solar. They helped educate us on solar energy and make the switch to make our home more efficient. We didn't know what we were missing out on but we are very pleased with the results.
If you find that your electricity bills are constantly increasing and eating up most of your home’s budget month after month, it may be time to consider an energy source that is not only cheaper in the long run but also environmentally friendly. Solar energy is a great option for you to consider, and not just from a savings viewpoint. This source of energy is constantly available, and unlike fossil fuels, will continue to be a viable source of energy for centuries to come without creating any harmful fumes that pollute our air.
So, how do you harness the sun in order to utilize its power for your home? The answer is solar panels. A solar panel consists of a certain number of solar modules that contain numerous solar cells. These cells are linked together to help capture the sun’s rays in order to convert these into usable energy. To be able to power an entire home on solar energy alone, you need to have what is called a solar PV system.
PV is short for photovoltaic, which is generally the conversion of light to energy or electricity. Solar panels that are used to directly produce electricity in a PV system converts the rays of the sun into energy through a structure that consists of a solar array, charge controllers, inverters, and batteries, to mention a few components. This system is usually mounted on the roofs of homes to get the most out of the rays of the sun.
Another solar powered system that homes can use to help reduce energy costs is the thermal system. A solar thermal system uses the power of the sun to heat up water. The thermal system is generally used to create usable hot water for homes, thereby reducing the need to use water heaters that are powered by electricity. This water can be used for bathing, laundry, dishwashing, and even to fill up heated pools.
With a PV system used for energy needs and a thermal system used to create hot water, you can be sure that your high electricity bills will soon become a thing of the past. This is because you will no longer depend too much on electricity providers for power or to heat water with, and this is because you will have your own source of energy right on top of your home.
