Considering adding solar panels as part of a greener home remodel? You should first consider some basic facts about solar power.
Solar Panels can drastically cut energy costs, eventually paying for themselves over time.
Solar Energy literally means to harness the power of the sun to heat or power your home.
William Adams discovered solar cells in 1876.
Like hydropower and wind turbine power, solar power is considered a renewable energy resource.
No only can solar energy be used to heat your home, it can also be used to power outdoor lighting setups and for RVs.
The technology behind solar energy or what described the conversion of solar energy to electricity is called photovoltaic panels, or more commonly known as PVs. Compared to the 3-4 percent efficiency that power plants have on converting the sun's energy, solar panels have an efficiency rating of around 15 percent.
Solar power systems can be connected to a grid or they can stand alone. Though many people connect them to grids in order to sell their excess power created by solar panels back to the energy companies.
