Simply said solar panels (also known as "PV panels") are devices that convert light from the sun, which is composed of particles of energy called "photons", into electricity that can be used to power electrical loads.
Solar panels can be used for a wide variety of applications including remote power systems for cabins, telecommunications equipment, remote sensing, and of course for the production of electricity by residential and commercial solar electric systems.
On this page, we will discuss the history, technology, and benefits of solar panels. We will learn how solar panels work, how they are made, how they create electricity, and where you can buy solar panels.
First of all, installing solar technology in your home can help reduce your monthly energy costs as you will be generating your own electricity. Not only does solar technology help you save money on costs, but it can also increase the resale value of your home. Beyond what this represents for your economic capacity, installing solar energy means you will be able to generate energy that will help you cover your energy consumption, reduce your carbon footprint and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
