Solar electricity means generating cheap, green electricity from the sun. It is possible to create electricity with using solar panels and the sun. There are technologies that directly transform the sun’s energy into electricity and known as photovoltaic. If you know how to use photovoltaic for your business or own house you will save plenty energy and money by using Photovoltaic electric system.
All you need to know is that solar panels on your house roof or in your garden take the sunlight and produce electricity. The electricity is captured and fed into an inverter to boost low voltage direct current into high voltage alternating current electricity.
This 240 voltage current will be compatible with your household appliances. It is free electricity. Just you need to pay for photovoltaic panels. Panels are necessary because cells in panels take sunlight in and produce electricity.
PV cells come in variety of colors and shapes. You also need inverter otherwise electricity which is produced by panels is low voltage and not useful for you. You also need new electricity meter. Then you will have all the time free electricity. The stronger the sunshine the more electricity is produced but even in cloudy days you can still generate some electricity because photovoltaic cells don’t need direct sunlight to work.
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 â€œinverterâ€ which takes the DC (low voltage) from the batteries and converts as AC (high voltage) for the devices requiring mains electricity.
