With increasing electricity costs and load-shedding, more South Africans have turned to sustainable solar energy. Whilst South Africa may have a water and power shortage, there is no shortage of sunlight. Hence why solar energy has become a sustainable alternative for many households and companies. Today we look at the advantages of solar energy and answer some important questions on the topic.
Advantages of solar energy
There are numerous advantages to solar energy. It is a fact that everyone needs to use available resources responsibly and effectively. Solar energy is by far the best source of renewable energy since it uses sunlight. It is renewable, clean and does not have direct emissions. It drastically reduces electricity bills. However, how much you will save depends on the size of your solar system and how much electricity you use. Furthermore, when it comes to maintenance, solar panels are known for their low maintenance costs. They should be cleaned a couple of times per year and cables can be checked every now and then to ensure the system runs smoothly. Finally, the industry is constantly advancing and new developments are often made available. This is an industry that has no shortage of innovation.
How does it work?
Solar panel’s photovoltaic cells alter sunlight into renewable energy or a direct current (DC). This DC is converted to alternating current (AC) by means of an inverter. AC is the type of electricity one would use in your residence. Therefore remember to place your panels in a spot that gets a lot of sunlight. There must be no trees or buildings that can cast shadows over the panels.
Solar panels will last a very long time since parts do not wear out whilst producing clean energy.
