To put it simply, solar power is energy extracted from the sun’s rays. Radiation from the sun is emitted constantly as it makes contact with the earth, and it’s possible to harness this energy by making use of photovoltaic (PV) cells. When sunshine hits these cells, photons interact with electrons to create “flow,” which results in electricity generation.
Solar rays provide on-demand energy during the daylight hours, which can be extremely effective when it comes to powering air conditioning units that need to be run throughout the whole day. Taking the DC (direct current) from the sun, a solar power system uses an inverter to convert this energy to AC (alternating current) power, which can be utilized within the home.
Producing no emissions, solar panels are perhaps the “greenest” of home performance upgrades, and it’s no secret that more and more homeowners in the Lexington, KY area are moving in this direction each year.
In the quest to use renewable energy, there’s simply no better option to consider than solar.
It’s not uncommon to wonder whether or not maintaining solar panels will require a lot of work. This being said, they’re essentially worry-free and require almost no maintenance during their lifespan.
If you’ve ever run a generator outside your home, chances are you know just how loud the process of producing electricity can be. Solar panels are just about silent, producing useful energy without the annoyance of unnecessary noise.
As renewable resources continue to grow in popularity, the move towards solar will no doubt increase with each year. Solar is the future of energy production, and the sooner you can get involved, the better.
Let’s face it – for an energy nerd, solar panels are just plain sexy. Synergy president Jamie Clark shows his off every chance he gets. But the reality is that most homes need a lot of work reducing electrical demand before they invest in solar.
We call our approach diet and exercise. You can’t get skinny running 5 miles a day if all you eat is junk food for every meal. Most of our houses are pretty fat and need to go on a diet. With our bodies we can shave calories so that we need less exercise, and with our homes we shave watts so we need less electricity.
