How Solar Panels Work
In order to understand the benefits of installing a solar power system, it is necessary to know how exactly the panels work. Solar panels work by extracting energy from the sun and converting it into usable electricity for your home or business. All the electricity produced by your solar panels that isn’t consumed by you will flow back to your power meter to offset the cost of your next electric bill. Solar is a renewable asset that utilizes photovoltaic (PV) frameworks to produce power, which you can then use to power your home or office.
The silicon and conveyors in the board change over the light into Direct Current (DC) power, which then streams into the inverter. The solar inverter changes over the Direct Current into Alternate Current (AC) power, which you can use in your home. Any extra power that is not used by your house is once again transported back into the grid for which you can get credit.
The positive impact of switching to Solar on the environment
- Solar power generation requires less Water Usage.
Solar panels do not require water to function, while conventional electricity sources use tens of thousands of litres of water every year. Additionally, fossil fuels generate harmful gasses like methane and carbon dioxide which reduce the air quality. Air pollution can hinder our health and well-being by causing anxiety, headaches, pneumonia, heart attacks, asthma, bronchitis, and allergies. Solar energy dramatically reduces carbon emissions in the air we breathe, which consequently improves your overall health.
- Solar power has helped slow down climate change.
Solar Power has also proven to be a positive impact on the environment as studies have shown that transitioning to solar power from traditional energy sources has slowed down climate change.
- Lower harmful emissions
The burning of fossil fuels increases the presence of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere that contributes to enhanced greenhouse effect which is warming our planet faster than before. The consequent increase in global temperature results in the melting of glaciers, rising sea levels, which in turn causes a number of calamities like cyclones, frequent floods, extreme heat and drought. On the other hand, generating electricity from solar panels does not produce any greenhouse gases and therefore helps to slow down climate change.
- Fossil fuels are finite in nature and are non-renewable and solar power is an excellent alternative.
Fossil fuel as an energy source cannot keep up with the increasing demand of energy and is a major contributor for air pollution. Solar energy, on the other hand, is abundant and can be endlessly harnessed to meet global energy consumption, reduce energy costs and ensure a stable energy future.
