Perhaps one of the most widely known energy solutions for homes is the use of solar panels. Simply put, solar panels turn the sun’s energy into electricity. This energy can then be used to power your lights, water heater, air conditioning and other costly energy users. Our Fort Worth renewable energy professionals can help you install this system and take advantage of the nearly endless supply of energy the sun provides.
Solar panels, first used in space in 1958, use photons from the sun’s rays to generate electricity through a process called the photovoltaic effect.
Solar panels are sets of solar photovoltaic cells connected and mounted together on a supporting platform. A photovoltaic (PV) module likewise, is a connected assembly of solar cells. Solar panels are used as major components of large photovoltaic systems to generate electric power for everything in your home.
Simply stated, each module carries a rating based on its direct current power output capability, usually between 100 and 320 watts. One individual solar module is limited in the amount of power it can produce, so most installations feature several modules.
If you are a homeowner considering the installation of solar panels you may be eligible for federal tax breaks. The federal government’s Energy Star program provides a 30 percent tax credit for photovoltaic systems. This credit is based on the cost and installation of the system and has no limit.
