Solar power is an endless source of natural energy that can be converted to electrical energy. Over the recent years many people have opted for this form of energy that comes without charge. Any home can use this form of electric energy, but the system delivers optimum results in those homes that get plenty of sun during the day, sun being the source of this energy.
How Do Solar Panels Produce Electricity?
Every simple and practical demonstration of the working of solar panels is the working of your calculator that works on solar battery/cell as light falls on it. Solar panels have a specific number of solar cells, also known as photovoltaic cells, arranged in a specific manner and wired together that absorb sunlight and transform that to electric current that can be used for operating electronic or electrical devices, depending on the output derived. To enable them to harness sunlight, which is transformed to electric current, solar-panels are often kept on the rooftops.
Which Are The Common Ways for Utilizing Solar Power at Home?
1. Powering Home Appliances
The power produced by solar panels, like other normal power, can be used for operating any household appliance, but it all depends how much power your panels are capable of delivering. It is practically possible to generate enough power to run the entire household on the power so generated. However, apart from the design of the panels, you have to ensure sufficient bright sunlight.
2. Heating the Home
Yes, you can heat the entire house in winters by using flat plate collectors that are designed to collect sunlight and deliver power enough for operating a solar heater that sets up convection currents to heat your home.
