Over the past years solar has become very popular as a home investment. It’s time to learn more about solar panels: what types there are, how they work, how much they cost, their pros and cons.

Usually, home solar panels are installed on your roof. They get energy from the sun and convert it to electricity. Today, there are two main types of solar panels: solar thermal and photovoltaic. Solar energy often refers to the photovoltaic effect. Solar systems convert sunlight into direct current (DC) energy using a photovoltaic (PV) effect. The solar cells, made of silicon, are connected into panels. A group of solar panels mounted on a frame is called a solar panel array.

When the sun shines, the energy produced by the solar panels is fed through cables to equipment called an inverter. The inverter converts the direct current produced by the solar panels into the electricity needed for your home (called alternating current, or AC). Once the energy passes through the inverter, it will run through the wires to the electrical panel in your home.

In order to calculate how many solar panels you will need, you will have to consider many factors like the size of your house, the location, the number of people living there, your usage etc.

Solar panels can offer you certain benefits like keeping control over your energy bills, not depending on rising energy costs, adding to the value of your home and reducing your negative impact upon the environment. As for the cons of solar energy one must keep in mind mostly the upfront costs that are still rather high and whether your roof type is right for it.

If you are doing your research and have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out! Our highly qualified professionals will be happy to answer them and help you decide whether solar is right for you.
