How Do Home Solar Electric Systems Work?
Installing solar panels for your home allows your to generate solar electric power from sunlight using photovoltaic (PV) panels. Most PV panels are mounted to roofs, where they soak up the sun’s radiant energy and convert it into electricity. They use electronic inverters to convert this electricity into 120 volts AC.
When you install solar panels in Maryland or Virginia, solar-generated AC power will be connected to your utility company’s system, which supplies power to your home. Your installation will provide you with free electricity generated from the sun, and can even leave you with energy credits from your utility company if you generate more electricity than you need through net metering. Later, during the night or a cloudy day, you can use this banked energy for your electric usage.
How Much Energy Do Solar Panels Produce?
Solar panel installation continues to gain popularity due to its capacity for long-term cost savings since solar energy is a cleaner, renewable alternative to traditional fossil fuels. Each solar panel consists of multiple solar cells that convert solar radiation into usable electricity; in total they can generate anywhere between 250 watts and 400 watts per hour depending on the angle and how intensely the solar energy strikes it. This amount of electricity generated by multiple solar panels can be enough to completely power a household or commercial property.
