Home Solar Panels
Home solar panels are a rising star in the realms of energy technology. Solar panels were once confined to large fields in the desert, but higher efficiencies have allowed homeowners to access this free source of renewable and clean energy. Solar energy using these panels is produced by photovoltaic cells, which are sensitive to sunlight and will produce electricity when struck by the sunís rays. Advanced technology has expanded the sensitivity and the yield of these panels as well as the type of light that can hit them and produce electricity. For this reason, these products have become a viable option for homeowners looking to reduce their rising electricity bills and lower their impact on the environment.
These products are usually placed on the roofs of most homes. The roof is an ideal location as it is out of sight from the look of the home and is the spot where most of the sunís light hits. It is also an easy location to install these constructions, as there is an existing frame on which to place the panels. These products can be purchased by a number of companies and installed by professionals. Other companies sell kits that allow homeowners to get the feeling of doing it themselves.
Most homeowners do not use these systems exclusively, but instead use a combination of solar energy and standard electricity to power their homes. As is pretty obviously, during the winter and fall, there is less sunlight to gain energy from. Conversely, during the summer there is an abundance and many homeowners can even bleed this extra energy to their surrounding neighbors.
