WHAT IS SOLAR ENERGY?
Solar energy is the power provided by the sun and it is an incredible way to help the environment while saving you thousands of dollars. Solar power is harnessed through photovoltaic (PV) cells technology – panels that convert sunlight directly into electricity. For those not proficient in solar panels or the “photovoltaic effect,” when the sunshine is absorbed PV cell, the photons of light excite the electrons in the cell, causing them to flow and generate electricity. Homeowners, business owners, and agricultural experts from around the world are installing solar panel systems on their roofs to maximize the use of this clean, renewable method to generate power.
GOOD FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT
Unlike conventional power, solar energy produces zero harmful emissions that hurt the environment. Solar energy is a clean and renewable process that harnesses the most natural of all resources: the sun.
ALTERNATIVE TO FOSSIL FUELS
In America alone, fossil fuels are used to generate an overwhelming 68% of the electricity we consume. As a result, the emissions generated from the combustion of these fossil fuels are incredibly harmful to our planet.
