Residential Solar Systems

 

Solar Residential Power Systems have the potential to replace fossil fuel-based energy as the most prevalent way of powering individual homes. The free and inexhaustible power of sunlight makes it a far superior home-powering fuel, and it gradually becoming an affordable one!

 

The most important thing about home solar power systems, in other words, is that they will keep producing electricity as long as the sun is shining. Even if everyone on Earth had one, they'd never run out of energy! The solar power systems available to homeowners use solar cells (photovoltaic cells) to convert the sun's energy into direct current electricity for powering their home appliances.

 

The type of solar panel used in home solar systems depends on the geographical area in which those systems are installed. Concentrating solar collectors are those which have panels angled in such a way that they absorb a maximum amount of direct sunlight. Non-concentrating solar collectors can be used in areas where there is not as much direct sunlight, absorbing the sun's energy from both direct and reflecting angles.

 

Climate change is a global environmental issue. In order to avoid the impacts of climate change we need to move from the current unsustainable energy modes to a future with clean and renewable sources of energy.

 

Since technological improvements are ignoring their impacts on the environment, educating younger generation about renewable energy, energy conservation and efficiency has become of utmost importance.
