Home solar power systems
Home solar power systems are increasing dramatically as an alternative energy resource for many people.This is a free and unlimited energy resource that is both clean and affordable.
The most important feature of home solar power systems are that you can continue to generate electricity as long as there is sun in the sky.
With these systems you will never run out of power. The power generated is usually larger than the amount of power consumed.
These home solar power systems consist of photovoltaic cells that are arranged in solar panels.
These solar panels are installed in different ways depending on the area where they are exposed to the sunlight the most. They also need to be angled properly so that maximum sunlight hits them. These are called concentrated solar collectors.
The non-concentrated solar collectors are solar panels that are not placed in an area having direct sunlight. These are capable of absorbing sunlight from direct and reflecting angles.
Home solar power systems can heat the home and provide it with electricity. The money you will pay continuously for fossil fuels will be much more compared to the initial cost of such a system. It makes the household independent and ensures its constant availability of free energy.
The benefits of installing home solar power systems are:
• Sustainable and renewable energy
The sun is a limitless source of energy. It produces heat that can be used for heating purposes using solar panels. It also produces light, which can be converted to electricity using photovoltaic cells.
The running cost of such systems is low due to low maintenance. Solar power is not at the mercy of any country or government. It cannot be stopped or controlled.
• Less dependence on fossil fuels
Fossil fuels are extremely harmful and expensive as compared to solar power. They are non-renewable and cannot be replaced.
• Environment friendly
The solar energy produces no pollutants and prevents global warming, as there are no harmful gases released in the atmosphere.
• Tax incentives
Most states and Governments provide tax incentives to people who have switched to renewable solar energy.
A professional knows exactly what size of home solar power system is needed for your house and the ideal location for it to yield maximum output.
