What You Need to Know About Solar Panels

by Sunshine Renewable Bringing Affordable Clean Energy to Your Doorstep

Today, people everywhere seem to be fascinated by solar panels. More importantly, how in the world do they work and how can they be used?

Basically, solar panels are made up of many smaller solar cells and often have a sheet of glass on the front side, allowing sunlight to go through while safeguarding the semiconducting materials from the outside elements. When photons of sunlight hit these solar cells, electrons are discharged. They are then moved through the circuit in the form of direct current (DC) – the type of electrical current in a regular battery. The current flows through the load (e.g., a light bulb or a fan) and back into the solar cell on the lower side, completing the circuit.

The more panels, the more power is generated. Solar panels in Houston are normally installed on rooftops or in open areas that have the best exposure to the sunlight. This is done so that the panels can receive the maximum amount of solar power at any given time. To make efficient use of the solar-generated energy, the power supply is most often fed into the electrical grid using inverters in standalone systems to store the energy that is not needed immediately. This stored power can then be used when the sunlight is not present.

If you’re considering solar energy for your home, you must only enlist professional Houston solar companies to get the most of your alternative energy.
