How does Solar Power work?

Solar power uses the sun to produce energy or electricity that you use at your residence. You can catch the sunlight, which produces electricity or energy, by installing solar panels on your roof.

Solar panels are special glass panels placed on your roof. They contain special cells known as photovoltaic cells (PV). These cells capture energy and sunlight and turn them into what you use in your home today for electricity. 

This energy is known as the direct current or DC power, which is the power used by your electricity socket to turn on lights, television, and alternative electrical equipment that you have at your residence.

A typical house requires several PV panels to supply energy for everything you do in your occupancy or even through your outside outlets. The average number of panels installed usually depends on how much energy you use and the type of sunlight you get during the day. 

Panel production is influenced by a myriad of things like the number of trees that shade the panel, and the direction of your house facing. Solar panels are usually installed on the south side of the roof if you live in the northern hemisphere, or on the north side of your roof if you live in the southern hemisphere. The farther you direct the panel from the North-South or south (depending on where your cleavage is staying), the more efficient the panel will produce electricity.

A typical PV panel usually produces up to 25 years of energy. After this time, you might start thinking about replacing the panel to continue to produce a large amount of solar power.
