Solar Energy is obtained by converting continuous flow of non-depleting energy from the sun through Solar panels such as Photovoltaics (PV) into electricity. This is considered to be most natural way of obtaining the energy without polluting the environment. There is no harmful emissions or polluting particles released into the atmosphere. The photovoltaic (PV) process that transforms sunlight into electricity doesn’t require any fuel. As a result Solar Power Energy is considered to be the ‘Green’ energy producing mechanism.
The mechanism behind Solar energy is that the Solar panels work by absorbing sunlight with photovoltaic cells, generating direct current (DC) energy and then converting it to usable alternating current (AC) energy with the help of inverter technology. AC energy then flows through the home's electrical panel and is distributed accordingly.
Renewable (solar) energy: the sun provides sufficient energy to meet the energy needs of the entire world, and unlike fossil fuels, it won’t run out. As a renewable energy source, the only limitation of solar power is our ability to turn it into electricity in an efficient and cost-effective way.
Solar energy is a clean source of energy where no greenhouse gas emissions are released into the atmosphere when you use solar panels to create electricity. And because the sun provides more energy than we’ll ever need, electricity from solar power is a very important energy source in the move to clean energy production.
There is no need to burn any fuel in association with the production of Solar energy. Once the Solar panels like Photovoltaics (PV) are installed, the energy is produced through capturing and converting the Sun-rays into the usable energy form as electricity. In doing so the cost factors involved are rather low in comparison to other forms of power generation.
Thereby the environment can be protected from burning and emission of fumes by producing clean solar energy at every residence or company. This help reduce pollution into the air and contribute less towards global warming. Solar power is environmently friendly and saves on individual electricity bill, reducing the need for constructing any additional energy generating plants. This aspect gives one the satisfaction of knowing that you are significantly benefiting and contributing to the betterment of the environment. This energy creation will substantially impact on fuel imports and more self-reliant in energy production and supply.
Generally a DS1's solar panels convert 22 percentage of their available energy into electrical power. This may vary based on regions and requirements. Most household solar panels may produce around 14 percentage of the energy that reaches them will be converted to electricity.
The efficiency of solar panels is dependent on many factors such as how much sunlight it gets, angle of the solar panels, whether parts of the cell are shaded and how clean the solar panels are. A continuous maintenance of keeping the panels clean and free of dust and debris can help them to better absorb sunlight and produce more output. In addition to this you can help your solar panels by locating them in sunny areas that has a direct line of sight with the sun’s rays, away from shaded by trees, parked cars, buildings or other structures.
