Jul 24, 2021 | Solar Energy

Interesting facts about solar energy installation are plentiful, aside from the cost and electricity saving functions they offer peace of mind when considering your carbon footprint. These hi-tech systems allow you to better manage and utilise the energy in your home or on your property. With more info you can fully understand the benefit of these solutions on your property. Read on to find out more about these systems.

Completely Free And Renewable

Once the initial costs of setup are covered, you will not need to spend a cent on the electricity they produce. Moreover, you will reduce your carbon footprint by using this greener, more efficient solution, since it is entirely renewable. Customers who make use of these services save, annually, not only on the cost of their resources but also on the cost of fuels used to create electricity. 

What Are They Made Of?

These installations contain solar cells, also known as photovoltaic cells, made of semiconductors  that convert sunlight into electricity. When light hits the cells, the electrons are separated from their atoms and flow through the cell, thus generating electricity. This is then fed into your power or storage systems in place. 


Once set up, almost no maintenance is required to ensure the correct running of the system. You will only have to make sure they’re clean and not shaded by anything. A tilted roof will require less cleaning, since rain helps remove dirt. Additionally, panels usually have a very long lifespan. They carry a standard 25-years warranty, but can last up to 30-40 years.

They Do Not Need Direct Sunlight To Work

Even though maximum efficiency is reached when the sun is shining, electricity is still produced on cloudy days and during winter. On the other hand, no electricity can be produced at night, but a storage system can solve this problem. The battery storage system cost can also often be paid off by selling excess energy to the national grid, depending on your area and system installed. 

The Technology Is Versatile

These systems can be used on any type of building, road, bridge, and even spacecraft and satellites. This type of solution is making its way into all aspects of life: lightweight, portable panels are already present on blinds for your windows and small devices like phone chargers. Moreover, next-generation cars and boats are updating to using elements of this process.

Solar energy installation is an effective way to manage and maintain your home and property usage. When you make use of these professional systems you can get benefits that are used around the world in a multitude of ways. These are interesting facts to know about these systems.
