Home Solar Energy
Solar Energy is the cleanest, most abundant and the most cost effective, simplest low carbon energy solution for all types of building.
Home Solar PV systems convert the light energy from the sun into electricity and so provide a truly renewable form of energy. Home Solar energy is not new. Building methods have for many centuries taken account of the sun’s movemeghnts in optimizing its warmth and light.
Home solar energy electricity systems are known as Solar Photovoltaic (PV). Solar electric systems, harness the sun’s energy in order to produce electricity for running household appliances, domestic heating and lighting. The technology has been around for decades and has been used by NASA to power satellites orbiting the earth.
Home solar energy PV systems consist of flat panels that you attach to your roof or outside wall. Each home solar panel consists of small PV cells which convert sunlight into electricity using thin layers of silicon to trap the sun’s rays. They are extremely durable and reliable with possible life spans over 40 years.
Although the stronger the sunshine, the more electricity that can be produced, Home Solar PV systems do not need direct sunlight but operate on radiated light. Therefore even on cloudy or overcast days they can generate electricity, on occasions more electricity because of the reflection of sunlight.
