Residential Solar Panels
Residential solar panels are on the forefront of solar technology at the moment and are the perfect balance of technology that provides clean renewable energy, which is also especially convenient. Solar panels for the home are becoming widely available and these devices have become real contenders for replacing the standard source for electricity for the home – i.e., the electric company, which gets its power from many non-renewable sources such as natural gas and oil. Many people enjoy the feeling of being ‘off the grid,’ but in actuality most homeowners will use a combination of solar energy and power from the electric company. Regardless of the actual setup of the system, homeowners will enjoy lower electric bills and a reduced impact on the environment.
Solar panels are large collections of solar cells, which are wired together and then wired to the electrical system of the home. These cells are photovoltaic, meaning that when certain types of sunlight strike them, they produce electricity. This energy is free (who owns the sun?) and it is clean. Solar cells have no emissions and simply generate electricity when struck. These devices are usually placed on the roofs of houses, though some homeowners place them in their lawn. To have a home that uses these devices, homeowners need to have a certain amount of exposure to the sun in order to get the light that will power their home. Additionally, during certain parts of the year, there is less sun and more cloud cover, making these systems less efficient or inoperable.
