A Brief Rundown of Options

Tapping into the Sun’s Renewable Energy If you are thinking of an energy source that is powerful enough to supply energy for a long period, then the sun is the most powerful of all energy sources. The sun’s beams can produce up to 1,000kWh per square meter of energy. It is the best source of renewable energy because it never dies out. Other sources of energy damage the earth by causing pollution and emission of greenhouse gases. Let us keep our environment safe by shifting to natural and renewable energy sources that does not harm our environment. With solar power, light energy from the sun is harvested to produce electricity using photo-voltaic (PV) panels. Conversion of light energy top electrical energy takes place in the solar inverter system, where a 12 volt direct current is converted to 240 volts. This is enough power to partially supply the electricity needs of a building. A PV panel can produce around 1.5 – 2kWp on average. It can supply power to a fraction of a household’s daily electricity consumption. Solar panels are more efficient during summer months as there is a greater amount of sunlight to be harvested during these months. Three types of panels are available for you to choose from: Mono-crystalline, poly-crystalline, and thin-film amorphous silicon panels. The efficiency in which energy from the sun is harvested depends on the type of system you use. Mono-crystalline panels harvest 15% of its capacity; poly-crystalline, 13%; and silicon, only 7%.
Lessons Learned About Panels
Local authorities might be concerned about your installing solar system panels on your house roof therefore it is best to ask permission if needed. Hiring an experiences technician to install your solar system will certainly benefit you in the long run, especially if you have no experience in solar systems. Solar panels are very low in maintenance costs, because they only need occasional cleaning, and will last for a long period of time if installed properly.
Getting Down To Basics with Energy
But despite its low maintenance, solar panels have not been very popular due to a very long payback period. There isn’t much of a market for surplus energy produced by solar power systems in India to profit from. Another way to access renewable energy is by using solar water heating panels. The heat energy of the sun is harvested and is used to generate hot water. Hot water can be supplied by this system to offices and households. The two types of solar systems available for you to choose from are: Flat plates and evacuated tubes. Evacuated tubes are more efficient than flat plates, and are more expensive. But despite the difference in the two systems, both deliver hot water by pumping the heated water into hot water tanks. In comparison, evacuated tubes last 10 years longer than flat plates. Your solar panel supplier will be able to tell you what system best suits your needs.
