Solar energy refers to the use of solar radiation primarily for practical purposes. However, with the exception of geothermal and tidal energy, all other renewable energy sources are energy sourced from the sun.
The amount of energy produced by the sun for every hour it shines on the earth could meet the world’s energy needs for an entire year. Unlike conventional energy sources, which require the refinement and time-consuming burning of fossil fuels, the use of solar energy can also result in significant and long-term savings in electricity costs in the long run.
- Effective Electricity Cost Savings
Solar PV system requires sunlight in order to function on days when the sun is not shining. All it needs is light to create energy, so although the effectiveness of the solar PV array will be less when the sun is covered by clouds, it will still generate some electricity.
Utilizing solar power helps lower your electric bills because the systems are generating some of the electricity you use. Some systems can even generate as much as 50 percent of the electricity you use on an annual basis.
- Save the Environment, Save the Earth
By using green energy instead of fossil fuels, you’re doing what you can to protect the environment. Our world’s fossil fuel reserves are rapidly decreasing, so we will have to find alternative fuels soon. Solar PV panels provide a green way to produce electricity.
