Solar power is a reliable energy source at home and very economical since its money saving.Solar power systems receive energy from sun, the energy is then transformed into electricity. This electricity can be be used to power your electronics at home like fridge, computer, television etc.
Before you install a solar pannel you will have to find out the amount ofenergy you will need ,the amount of energy the solar panel is capable of absorbing and the sunlight available in your area.
The procedure of installing a power system is not complicated. With the help a professional engineer, install solar panels around your home in areas that directly receive sunlight. Try to put the panels on roof tops for maximum benefits.
A solar panel comprises of light absorbing mirrors and some photovoltaic cells. sun rays falls on the mirrors, the cells convert solar energy into electricity energy. Solar panels have molten salts that store energy which is later converted into electricity. this can be even in absence of sunlight e.g. during the night.
Lets see some pros and cons of using solar electricity in our homes.
Benefits of home solar electricity.
*When you use this home electricity you save on large amount of money that you would have used to pay your electricity bill. This is because solar electricity is renewable, free and abundant.
*Solar electricity creates no pollution or even waste e.g. harmful gases. By installing a solar panel you are making a great contribution in reducing global warming.
*Using solar electricity at home reduces the risk of respiratory infections that are caused by petrol by-products used for heating during winters.
Disadvantages of using solar electricity at home.
*The initial cost of installation is quite expensive. Solar panels needs regular maintain in order to run smoothly and at full capacity, this may cost some money.
*Cloudy weather and rainy conditions are not favorable for using a solar panel, this is because sunlight is limited therefore energy released is also less.
Finally we can conclude that, using solar electricity can be a great idea since as we have seen it has more befits than disadvantages.
