Modern Solar System

Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available, and the U.S. has some of the richest solar resources in the world. Solar technologies can harness this energy for a variety of uses, including generating electricity, providing light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial use.

Solar Power Basics

Solar power harnesses the natural energy of the sun to produce electricity. Specifically, solar cells capture certain wavelengths of solar radiation and convert them to electricity for our homes, calculators, and more. Photovoltaic cells in solar panels cause a reaction between photons and electrons on an atomic scale. When photons (light rays) collide with electrons, the electrons get catapulted loose. Then, the electrons are captured and channeled into usable electricity. Pretty neat, huh? Photovoltaic cells are commonly made from different types of silicon. Sunlight takes a little over eight minutes to reach Earth and a few seconds longer to make contact with your solar panels. In the United States, solar panels need to face south to capture optimal sunlight. For more information, Contact us here:
