Everything You Need to Know about Solar Panels
Are you concerned about the integrity of the environment or perhaps looking for new ways at benefiting from the energy the environment has to offer? Do you already own a specific energy system, and would like to lower your carbon emissions?
With the growing effects of global warming and carbon pollution, environmental conservation has become a priority. In addition, the rising costs of energy products is on the rise, thus switching to greener forms of energy that still allow you to meet the energy requirements for your home or business is an important step towards protecting our environment from further threats.
Have you considered switching to solar panels? As they can provide you with an effective energy source to meet your energy needs at an affordable price.
Here you will find answers to the vital questions you might have about solar panels.
A solar panel converts sunlight into an electric current or heat used to provide electricity for home or building. Solar panels are constructed as a collection of lots of small solar cells that are spread over a large area to provide enough power. The larger the concentration of light hits the cell the more electricity or heat is produced.
Solar panels work by converting light photons into electricity through the solar photovoltaic (PV) effect. This allows for direct conversion of sunlight into solar power, or electricity. Solar panels use layers of semi-conducting material, most commonly silicon. PV’s are measured by kilowatts peak (KWp).
This measures the rate solar panels generate energy at their peak performance with direct sunlight in the summer. Solar panel cells can either be mounted on rooftops or on the ground, alternatively you could have solar tiles fitted instead, thus completely replacing the already existing rooftop.
When considering solar panels there are two main types to choose from:
Solar thermal systems work based on the process of solar thermal heating using the suns by absorbing the sun’s energy and then converting it into heat that can be transferred into your home or business to be used for hot water heating and space heating. The heat is generated from solar panels (collectors) that are mounted on rooftops.
Choosing the right system for your requirements can be hard and time-consuming. At Solar Power Systems we would be happy to help you with more information and choosing the right system for your needs. Do not hesitate to contact us or visit our webshop!
