WHAT IS SOLAR ?
Solar takes advantage of a free and powerful energy source – the sun.In a single hour, the sun transmits more energy to the earth's surface than the world uses in a year.Solar converts this energy into electricity, making it a simple, clean and cost-effective way to power our lives. It’s dependable, too – because unlike fossil fuels, the sun’s energy is unlimited.Just imagine what that could do for the environment, and to you, financially.
Earth's Energy Budget
The Earth can be considered as a physical system with an energy budget that includes all gains of incoming energy and all losses of outgoing energy. The planet is approximately in equilibrium, so the sum of the gains is approximately equal to the sum of the losses. All energy use results in waste heat. In order to use more total energy than presently and without raising the Earth's average temperature, that additional energy must be compensated for by using only sources that would otherwise have been wasted.

WHAT ARE SOLAR PANELS?
Placed on roofs or on the ground, solar panels capture the sunlight and convert it into electricity.
It was once treated as a "Trendy" & "expensive" technology, however, by time passes, the technology of producing and scale of economy has lowered the production cost with an astonishing rate that make solar a reasonable choice for an cleaner alternative of power source.
It’s true that the more light the panels receive, the more electricity they can generate. But they still work on cloudy days – just as a solar-powered calculator does.Their full name is solar photovoltaic panels, or PV. (“Photo” means “light” and “volts” means electricity.). However, we usually just say “solar” for short.
ADVANTAGES USING SOLAR ENERGY
How Solar Panel Works?
You’ve probably seen solar panels on roofs, or maybe on the ground. The panels are frames made up of solar (PV) cells (these are layers of monocrystalline or polycrystalline silicon).The best conditions for solar:
- All facing directions are consider efficient in Equatorial countries, tilting angle plays a bigger role.
- An angled roof (not flat) that points to the sun.
- An unshaded spot so your solar can see the sun absorb as much daylight as possible throughout the day.
