Making the decision to install a solar power system means having a full understanding of how creating renewable energy works. While it may seem like a complicated process, simple steps are taken to convert the sun’s rays into electrical energy for your home.
There are six components of a solar power system, as shown through this solar panel diagram that will harness the sun’s energy and make it your own:
Solar modules are the heart of solar energy systems. These panels come in three types: monocrystalline, polycrystalline and amorphous silicon, also known as “thin film.” Monocrystalline and polycrystalline silicon are the two most commonly used styles of panels due to high performance and quantity of electrical output.
Designing the module array is the key to making your home or business energy efficient. SolarCity can help you create the most efficient solar panel system by providing homeowners a self-guided tour of their energy use. This energy consultation will pinpoint sources of inefficiencies and rank energy-saving improvements by cost and savings.
Installing a proper array of solar modules will help consumers create a more energy-efficient home. There are a few steps homeowners can take to see even greater savings once they switch to solar:
