SOLAR ELECTRIC PANELS

Solar Electricity

The electrical power created by solar photovoltaic panels which can be used efficiently in houses, vehicles, boats and more... The location of the panels is important. More electricity is produced from the sun if the sunlight comes to the panels without any blocking. (i.e. mountains, trees or buildings).

Solar electricity may be practical and cheap for the conditions where mobile power is needed, or places frequently face with power cut. But it should be kept in mind that the solar electricity systems may be expensive parallel to the need of electricity. 

We may advantage from the sun power during the year. In order to generate solar electricity, photons from sunlight are absorbed. This process is successful, even in cloudy days or during bright nights but only in few amounts. The panels may be positioned on a roof, on the ground, or on a pole.

The amount of solar electricity may change due to strength of the sunlight. In order to have constant electricity flow, solar electricity should be kept in batteries. The constant power is essential for using the solar electricity for electronically devices requiring mains electricity. Also, attention should be given not to discharge the batteries entirely or contrarily overcharge them. This may give damage to the batteries. A controller is a helpful device at this point. Another important thing is an “inverter” which takes the DC (low voltage) from the batteries and converts as AC (high voltage) for the devices requiring mains electricity.
