Photovoltaic Solar Panels

There are many reasons why homeowners go solar, but improving the environment and cutting energy costs are the most common. Many people are aware that solar is a great home efficiency upgrade and are eager to reduce their carbon footprint while also improving property value.

Whether you’re a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With photovoltaic solar panels, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 25+ year life-cycle. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and save you money.

Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with photovoltaic solar panels have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking photovoltaic solar panels into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as home-buyers become more educated about photovoltaic solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic solar panels will continue to grow.

What Are Photovoltaic Solar Panels?

A photovoltaic solar panel is a device that converts the energy from sunlight into usable electricity. “Photovoltaic” refers to the process of converting the sunlight, and the solar panel is the device itself. Photovoltaic solar panels are widely used today by homeowners and business owners to generate power for their property, save money on electricity every month, and improve their property’s value.

Do Photovoltaic Solar Panels Need Direct Sunlight?

While it’s true that photovoltaic solar panels do operate at their best in direct sunlight, solar panels will still produce electricity with only indirect sunlight. However, you will see a drop in performance. Ideally, your photovoltaic solar panels should receive between 4 and 5 hours of direct sunlight every day.

Did You Know That Photovoltaic Solar Power Can Increase Your Electricity Output & Energy Efficiency?

When you have Photovoltaic solar panels installed, you generate free electricity when the sun shines. You may actually be generating more electricity than your home consumes during periods of low electricity demand. When this happens, the net metering regulations stipulate that you must buy your surplus electricity from your electric utility. Depending on the size of a solar device and household use patterns, you can expect your electricity bill to be reduced by 40% -80%.

In a larger overall home energy saving plan , which includes high levels of insulation, improved air tightness, energy-efficient water heating and high-performance heating and cooling (solar energy), it is important to consider solar energy as one element. Keep in mind that photovoltaic solar energy can also be used by generating solar-heated water in a solar thermal device that saves money.
