WHAT IS SOLAR?
If you're new to solar energy, you may be wondering how you can get power from a star that is millions of miles away. But the technology behind solar is quite straightforward.
The sun gives off light, which can be turned into electricity using photovoltaics. Solar PV panels are made using semi-conducting materials, and when light shines onto these materials, they create an electric field, which is when captured and turned into usable energy. It's a common misconception that solar panels only work when it's sunny, but modern panels can now capture energy even when it is cloudy.
When there are many of us switching to solar power, we are less likely to experience blackouts or brownouts. Every household in the UK that have solar panels installed, functions as a small power plant. This, in turn, provides us with a greater electricity grid security, especially in terms of natural or human-caused disasters.
Solar allows us to make use of a near infinite, green energy!
YOUR FREE SOURCE OF ENERGY
SUPPORT THE ENVIRONMENT, GO SOLAR TODAY
We often associate solar energy with electricity, which is acquired through PV panels, but it’s also possible to use the energy generated by the sun for heating purposes. This process is accomplished by deploying solar thermal systems that simply convert the sunlight into heating solutions.
The most commonly known fact about solar energy is that it represents a clean, green source of energy. Solar power is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. There’s nothing about solar power that pollutes mother nature. Solar power doesn’t release any greenhouse gasses. It’s safe and environmentally-friendly. Yet, people are still in doubt why solar energy is good.
Solar power is self-sufficient and installing solar panels on your roof is a safe and easy path to contribute to a sustainable future. Starting on your home, farm or business is a great way to show you care about the environment.
MORE SOLAR, FEWER BLACKOUTS
SO, WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SOLAR?
It is pretty much an infinite energy source. So long as there is a sun, we can get energy from it!
Reduced reliance on fossil fuels. Through solar, we can reduce our dependence on non-renewables like coal and oil.
A green energy solution. Solar energy does not give off harmful gases, and generating energy does not create any nasty by-products or waste.
It can also be used for heating. Through new technologies, solar energy can also heat water, homes and businesses.
Minimal maintenance. There are no moving parts in solar panels: all you really need to do is keep the panels clean for maximum efficiency.
Enjoy energy independence. Solar panels on your roof can reduce your need to depend on the National Grid for energy.
Excellent savings in the long term. With the constantly rising costs of energy, solar can help you save money over time. It costs nothing for the sun to shine, so your only real cost is the initial investment!
