What You Need to Know


Solar PV can be difficult to understand, especially when you are thinking about using it for your home or business. There is a long list of things to consider, but the first step is to understand the basic technology behind the panels. Solar panels contain solar cells (mentioned above) that collect heat energy from the sun. Once this energy is trapped, an inverter is used to convert the energy so that it is usable within your home to power things with electricity (EnergySage). Though you may not be able to produce enough energy to meet 100% of the needs for your home, solar PV can still help you save a lot of money. Solar PV is considered ‘clean’ energy because it harnesses energy from a renewable resource: the sun. Our planet is constantly receiving energy from the sun, so why not utilize it? Overall solar is a very environmentally friendly solution in a society that uses colossal amounts of energy
