Evolution Solar Harnessing Energy from the Sun through Solar Energy Panels
Almost all countries are now very dependent in energy resources derived from fossil fuels. • However, this energy is a nonrenewable resource and is now rapidly depleting due to abuse and overconsumption. • Humans have been uncaringly producing and using this resource without thinking that the world will soon face scarce energy sources.
Because of the energy crisis affecting many countries around the world, governments are now greatly promoting the use of renewable energy from industrial, commercial and residential use.
One of the popular renewable energy sources widely promoted today is the Solar Energy.
Solar energy is the energy harnessed from the light and heat emitted by the sun. This energy is unlimited and free for everyone that is why people are encouraged to use this energy for their electricity consumption.
How Solar Energy is Harnessed and Utilized • To harness and utilize solar energy, people should use solar energy panels or also known as photovoltaic cells. Solar energy panels and solar energy systems are technologies that can be used to harness the energy from sun and convert it into electricity.
Solar energy from the sun is now widely used to provide electricity for industrial, commercial and residential purposes. • Solar energy panels are also used for water heating especially to heat water for household use and for heating pools.
Australia is one of the leading countries that have been widely promoting the use of photovoltaic systems for electricity consumption and water heating purposes.
The government also provides incentives and rebates for all those who use solar energy panels, energy-efficient equipments, and discounts for those who are planning to convert to renewable energy like solar energy systems.
When to Consider Solar Energy Panels • If you are living in a location that receives abundant sunlight especially during daytime or dry season, then turning to solar energy panels can be a very good option.
Some people think that solar energy panels are impractical because it can only be used during daytime when there is sunlight. • However, these technologies are not limited to daytime only since most solar energy systems are now built with batteries and backup systems which store and supply energy in case it is raining or already dark.
New solar energy technologies also allow conversion of electricity through solar heat
The amount of energy that can be harnessed will depend on the capacity of the solar energy panels, its size and the position of the modules. To harness more energy, proper positioning of the solar energy panels is important. It should be placed where it can receive more light and heat from the sun.
To convert more energy, you can opt for larger solar energy panels especially for commercial establishments. • However, if you only need a small amount of solar energy especially for household use, small size home solar panels and economic solar panel systems can be a suitable option.
Getting the Right Solar Energy Panels for Your Specific Needs • A lot of solar energy companies and manufacturers are now manufacturing and offering solar energy panels and systems specifically designed for the specific needs of the clients. People can even ask for customized solar panel systems to specifically match their energy needs.
All you have to do is to calculate your electricity needs, which can be found on your monthly electricity bill and decide the amount of energy consumption you want to be sourced from solar energy.
