Solar Power for your Home
Thank goodness for the sun. Let me explain. As the world continues to use up
its supply of oil and coal, we have come to rely more and more on renewable energy sources, namely solar
energy, wind energy and hydro power or water energy.
It is difficult to use hydro power for individual homes, but solar energy can be used by individuals and quite
easily too. In fact, we now have solar powered cars, solar heated swimming pools, and solar heated homes, and
this reduces our reliance on fossil fuels.
We can easily harness the sun's energy using solar panels, which can then be connected to an appliance, using a
registered electrician. The solar panel consists of grids, or photovoltaic cells which collect the sunlight as
efficiently as possible. Since there are more solar panels in use these days, their cost has come down
significantly since the early days.
You may have seen photovoltaic cells by the roadside for lighting roadsigns, or roadwork signs, or even in your
calculator if it is solar powered.
Yes, there is definitely a need for more people to use solar power, to reduce there dependency on the elctricity
grid they currently use. Even if you don't switch over to a home using all solar power, you can still save by using
a few solar panels, and thus reduce your monthly electricity bills.
