What is a Solar Energy System?

Laredo solar panelsA solar energy system is a technology that captures the energy of the sun and converts it into electricity. The system consists of solar panels, an inverter, a battery, and a monitoring system.

Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells that absorb sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. The inverter then converts the DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is compatible with the electrical grid.

The battery stores the extra power for later use, and the monitoring system keeps track of how much power is made and how much is used.

Advantages of a Solar Energy System:

Switching to a solar energy system has many benefits, including:

Reduced energy bills: Solar energy is a free and renewable source of energy, and once you have installed a solar energy system, you can generate your own electricity and reduce your energy bills significantly.

Eco-friendly: Solar energy is a clean and renewable source of energy, which means that it does not emit any harmful greenhouse gases or pollutants that contribute to climate change.

Low maintenance: Solar panels are very durable and require very little maintenance. Once you have installed the system, you can enjoy the benefits of solar energy for decades without any major repairs.

Increased home value: Installing a solar energy system can increase the value of your home, as it is a desirable feature for many potential homebuyers.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells that absorb sunlight and convert it into DC electricity. Each cell is made up of two layers of silicon, which creates an electric field. When sunlight hits the silicon, it knocks electrons loose from their atoms, and they start to flow through the electric field. This creates a direct current (DC) electricity flow, which is then converted to alternating current (AC) electricity by the inverter. The AC electricity can then be used to power your home or business.

How to Choose the Best Solar Energy System

Choosing the right solar energy system can be a daunting task, but we are here to help. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a solar energy system:

Size: The size of your solar energy system will depend on your energy needs and the available space on your property.

Efficiency: The efficiency of your solar panels will determine how much electricity they can generate. Higher efficiency panels will generate more electricity in less space.

Cost: The cost of a solar energy system will depend on the size and efficiency of the system, as well as the installation costs. It is important to consider the long-term savings on energy bills when calculating the cost of a solar energy system.
