Help the environment and cut your own carbon footprint by installing solar panels for electricity into your home. These fabulous products provide a cheap form of electricity direct from sunlight by capturing the sun’s energy, turning it into electricity which can be used to run many household appliances including lighting.
PV cells actually don’t require direct sunlight to work, surprisingly householders can still generate some electricity even on cloudy days. The PV cells are basically panels which are attached to your roof or walls, when light shines on the cells it creates an electric field across the layers so the stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced. Solar panel electricity is a renewable energy which doesn’t release harmful carbon dioxide or other such pollutants into the atmosphere.
How They Work
Are solar panels for electricity suitable for your home? Householders need a roof or wall that faces within ninety degrees south and certainly isn’t obstructed by trees or buildings, if it does the system will generate far less energy. Will your roof be strong enough? Solar panels are not light in weight so the roof must be strong enough to take the necessary weight especially when panels are placed on existing tiles.
