Solar energy transmitted through solar panels:
HOW IT WORKS
Photovoltaic cells convert sunlight to direct current electricity.
Then, the inverter converts that energy into alternating current electricity.
The electrical panel sends power to the building.
A solar energy system adds to your property value, without adding any tax liability
Solar electric systems reduce pollution and CO2 emissions
Solar power systems generate electricity at peak power usage times. When the value and cost of electricity is the highest.
Not all the light from the sun is absorbed, so 60% of the sunlight gets wasted and is not harnessed
It occupies a large area of space for the system to be efficient.
The panels must be placed in a sunny area to work, which may be difficult for some.
