The biggest benefit of the installation of a solar panel system is energy awareness. Before consumers install solar panel systems they audit their homes for energy efficiency. The cost of installation prohibits letting money leak out the door, windows, roof, and air ducts.
It is easy to waste money on energy if you do not know any better or don’t know what you can do to save it. Most companies that install solar panel systems provide an energy audit prior to installation.
The savings on your monthly energy bill depends on a lot of variable factors. There are definitely energy savings on your bill. The size of your system, weather conditions (sunny days), and energy efficiency of the home determine the total amount of savings. Smart homes save energy. Savings underlie the technology. The products are created to solve the problem of wasted energy for efficiency and conservation.
Energy independence is a common result and tangible feeling many homeowners get after installation of a solar system. It’s part of the American spirit to be independent. Solar systems offer a sense of independence for users.
The fact is that many homeowners generate enough electricity to sell it back to the power companies during peak times. The meter runs backwards. It must feel great. There are still times when electricity must be purchased. At night, for example.
Residential Solar Panels
Solar panels make a home Green Real Estate or Eco-Friendly Real Estate by definition. Green Real Estate is ecological friendly (eco-friendly) property. It takes steps to prevent harm from interactions with the environment.
The most common features of eco-friendly property are conservation methods for non-renewable resources. Low carbon emissions is the desired effect of eco-friendly property. Photo-voltaic Cells, solar panels are an energy conservation method that reduces the use of non-renewable energy sources.
Residential solar panels are Photovoltaic cells placed on homeowners roofs to capture photons from the sun and convert them into electricity. Rooftop solar panels catch the sun’s rays and convert them into electricity that we can use in our homes. Photo-voltaic cells is the name of the hardware that converts light into electricity.
A group of PV Cells are called a module. Several modules make up a solar panel. A group of solar panels make up a solar array.
Photovoltaic cells are made of two types of silicon, metal conductors, and wires. Silicon is a semiconductor and is used to absorb the sun’s rays. Metal conductors transfer the electric charge, voltage, that runs through the silicon, current, to the wires. The wires meet at junction boxes and carry the energy into the home.
There is anti-reflective coating inside the PV Cells and a glass cover as well. The anti-reflective coating prevents energy loss. The glass cover protects the cells from the environment.
