Domestic solar panels

  1. 1. • Domestic Solar Panels The evolution of solar panels over the years has been in response to the increasing household electricity demands. They help to substantially reduce electricity bills by significant levels. This explains why many people are opting to install them in their homes. Moreover, it is incredibly energy saving.
  2. 2. • Benefits• You do not need to be a genius to understand the advantages of solar power, which is the medium through which solar energy is absorbed and used in homes. One advantage of solar energy is the fact that they are environment-friendly. Installation of solar panels and reliance on the sun as a natural source of energy do not result in pollution of any form.
  3. 3. • People are, however, reluctant to install solar panels in their homes because they assume that they are expensive to install. Homeowners are advised to do some research and review the various solar company plans within their locality before making such assumptions.
  4. 4. • They can estimate their daily electricity consumption and select those solar panels that are not only cost effective but are also within their budget. It takes not more than 5 years for the solar panels to return your investments. Considering the various benefits of the solar panels, this serves as a great investment. Saving costs when using this energy is dependent on a number of factors, among them the amount of sunlight which the panels receive when they are at the peak of their function. The cost also relies on the solar panel capacity. A second hand panels will cost you less compared to a new one however, its efficiency will definitely be lower.
  5. 5. • Working of Domestic Solar Panels They are meant for generating electricity, work based mainly on the charge flow principles. For home systems that are run by solar, a negative layer of silicon is put against a positive layer of silicon resulting in an electric field which aids in flow of charges. Upon striking the panels, sun rays generate electric charges, after which these charges are converted into electric current by a conductive metal. Thus the current generated is distributed as electricity in home appliances. In water heating systems they work by absorbing heat through the collector from the sun and later converting it into heat. A conducting liquid then carries the resultant heat to hot water tanks. If you intend to install a solar water heater in your home then it is important to know more about the costs of the solar water heaters. You can as well choose to use a homemade solar water heater and save yourself some cash as it is much cheaper!
  6. 6. • Solar power is one of the most beneficial alternative energy sources used for power generation. Though domestically they may not generate a large amount of power, still to some extent, they could be quite beneficial for household tasks. Scientists are doing more research towards improving the productivity of domestic solar panels as well as making them more cost-effective.
