What is Solar Energy?
Every year the sun beams to the earth energy to sustain global needs of energy for the entire year. Solar energy is a technology used to convert solar energy into other forms like electrical energy to meet global requirements. As of now only one tenth of global energy needs is supplied by solar energy but the potential for the future is mind boggling.
The consumption of non-renewable sources like oil, gas and coal is increasing at an alarming rate. The time has finally come to look after some other renewable sources of energy i.e. solar, wind and geothermal energy. Although many countries have started utilizing solar energy extensively but still they have to go a long way to exploit this energy to fulfill their daily demand for energy. Here are few facts on solar energy that can help you assess the potential of solar energy to meet global requirements.
Solar energy refers to energy from the sun. The sun has produced energy for billions of years. It is the most important source of energy for life forms. It is a renewable source of energy unlike non- renewable sources such as fossil fuels. Solar energy technologies use the sun’s energy to light homes, produce hot water, heat homes as shown in solar tankless water heater reviews and electricity. The main benefit of solar energy is that it does not produce any pollutants and is one of the cleanest sources of energy. It is a renewable source of energy, requires low maintenance and are easy to install. The only limitation that solar energy possess is that it cannot be used at night and amount of sunlight that is received on earth is depends on location, time of day, time of year, and weather conditions.
Solar panels are usually of two types namely Polysacradite and Monosacradite, both are suitable for use in this part of the world, solar panel can be used with both inverter and batteries to increase the backup time, the solar panel receive energy during day and use the energy received to charge the battery while the battery do the supply for inverter during the night for an hybrid solution,
The major issue for Inverter set up is battery, the inverter system is just like every electronics that doesn’t get bad easily if the proper procedure is followed, the quality of the battery determine how long or well one will enjoy this solution, we have different kinds of batteries that are very good for both home and industrial use, it comes in different make from the manufacturer namely GEL, DEEP Cycle, AGM etc…, the warrantee varies between 6month to 18month as specified by the manufacturer
