One of the best ways to “go green” and use less conventional electricity is to install a solar home system. Solar power is clean energy that is taken directly from the sun. This powerful energy is collected in solar panels and converted to energy you can use for your regular household needs. SunTech solar panel inverters are part of an active solar system. You will detect no difference in the power that is created from a solar source and traditional electricity.
Home solar panels are typically mounted on the roof, in a place where the sun is available most of the day. Panels are most effective when placed in areas where there is nothing to block the sunlight. Solar energy can be used to supplement traditional electricity or may be used as a stand-alone system. If you are adapting your current home to include solar power, you’ll likely want to use the system in addition to electricity. The panels are designed to mount on the roof in a manner that allows them to attract the maximum sun input.
A solar-powered home can greatly reduce your energy costs. Solar energy is among the least expensive types of power, since the raw material for it, the sun, is free for the taking. Solar power is converted and can be stored for later use. This allows you to use SunTech solar panel inverters whenever there is sun. You can harness the power of the sun to reduce your home energy costs.
There are two main types of solar technologies. Active solar power includes the use of SunTech solar panel inverters to collect and convert the sunlight into useable power. Passive systems add to the efficiency of solar systems by reducing the amount of energy consumed in the home. For example, stone or cement may be used as a building material because these products tend to readily hold heat. Both systems can be used together to create a very efficient power source.
Adding both active and passive solar systems to your home will greatly reduce your use of traditional power sources and provide you with a cost effective alternative to electricity. The number of solar panels that you will need for your home depends on your needs as well as how well you use passive systems to enhance the system. No matter what your needs, you can easily and affordably design a home solar system that is going to drastically reduce your home energy costs.
