Who does not care does not live
Solar Energy thanks Solar Photovoltaic Panels
Many people do not know exactly what it is when we refer to ‘solar energy’ and this happens with the people who spend most of their time in the dark, natives of the hidden jungles, comuneros of the Andes, inhabitants of the cabedas, farmers with villages without roads, or slaves of their terroirs with very unique customs where, although it seems exaggerated, the state rulers have not visited.
They know little or nothing about electric current.
Our task at this time is to educate, which is why we are leaving these lines: “Solar Energy, serves or does not work”.
2. Solar cells appear
They state in documentations that in 1883 the American Charles Fritts made mention of the solar cells that operated with selenium, called a chemical semiconductor and a very thin bit of pure gold.
Already in this time the solar cells oriented him to the generation of electricity.
The applications of the selenium cell were for light sensors in the exposure of cameras.
The silicon cells that are now known come from the American inventor Russell Ohl built in 1940 and patented in 1946.
The modern era of the silicon cell arrives in 1954 in the laboratories Bells (American company of research and scientific development) where they claim that they accidentally managed to have a semiconductor based on silicon very sensitive to light despite tiny impurities.
Then they appeared commercially from the silicon cells achieving an efficiency of 6%.
3. -Toward panels and photovoltaic modules
Russia and the United States of North America used solar cells in solar panels in space satellites called ‘geospatialaltites’ for the development of communications, in which the energy would come from a device for capturing sunlight.
They had the desire to look for increasingly efficient panels in trusted technology, so the first market for photovoltaic solar panels was the aerospace sector.
As time progresses, silicon cells enter the industry scenario and development of larger production technologies. The objective, to manufacture more efficient panels as in 1970, appeared the first solar cell with heterostructure of gallium arsenide (GaAs).
Photovoltaic panels, also known today as photovoltaic solar modules, are now easily purchased at industrial centers or factories in the retail world and at large production scales with a minimum efficiency of 20%.
As the protection of the environment is the commitment of all, governments, people and industries, we see a great growth, both in the production of increasingly cheaper solar panels and in the implementation of large solar plants connected to electricity networks.
Source of the Electric Current is the Sun that thanks to the Photovoltaic Solar Panels or Modules we can have in our homes or daily work centers
4. -To have Solar Energy at home
Our task today is to monitor, calculate and know the amount of electric current we need in the house to look for the size, design, quality of the components of a whole Photovoltaic Panel System without disturbing the Light Company that sells us electricity.
The amount of solar energy we require depends on the quantity and efficiency of your photovoltaic solar panels; We reiterate that, we have to calculate the number of them and size the other components such as regulators or controllers, batteries if required, cables, inverters and continuous control resources. (see help)
It makes sense to acquire high performance photovoltaic panels if that allows you to consider in more difficult spaces with the least amount of panels, plates or photovoltaic panels.
5.-Have solar energy without problems
5.1 -A solar generator could be the answer to personal energy problems, and who can say that someday we will solve the world’s energy crisis?
5.2 -Find subsidies and discounts to help pay for the installation of solar panels. The costs of installing solar energy are not overwhelming, in addition, you can get subsidies for investments in renewable energy systems installations. This helps reduce your expenses significantly.
5.3 – Consult the local regulations before installing any type of solar energy system. In some countries they require a number of permits. That’s the last thing you’ll want to deal with when the system is in place and you have to eliminate it later.
It is possible to obtain tax deductions for your costs
5.4 – Keeping the panels clean will help ensure that you are taking advantage of the maximum amount of sun energy you can. Hire professional help for cleaning and inspection if warranted.
5.5 Many governments around the world can grant credits for their taxes if they switch to solar energy. This can save up to a third of your initial purchase. Check the Internet for the different credits you qualify.
5.6 Cars that work with solar energy can actually reduce carbon-based pollutants; However, the technology has not yet been perfected. Each year there are advances in solar technology that make them more efficient and less expensive.
5.7 We need to have it annotated the design date of our photovoltaic solar panels. Often, more contemporary models have better and more efficient features.
5.8 – Have the configuration checked twice a year. During this verification, a technician will check all connections, make sure that your solar panels are at the correct angle and make sure that your power inverter is turned on and working properly.
5.9 – Compare more than just the price. These panels vary in size, brand, voltage, warranty, performance and quality of materials. Therefore, it is important to make sure of each solar panel before buying, starting with seeing its quality then the cost. Compare with another distributor.
5.10 -If there are children in the home, it is likely that the bill for monthly electricity consumption or the energy expended is high: TVs, cell phones, computers, lights, extra clothes, etc. that are included in the upbringing of each child. Therefore, the use of solar energy can significantly reduce your bill mentioned above.
5.11 – Perform periodic checks to verify that your solar panels are still in excellent condition. If your unit is damaged, it will not pull any power and leave you in a difficult situation. A large energy bill can result from not checking your system from time to time.
Carefully consider how much energy you need to keep your home running. Also, think about where the sun shines the most on your property. From there, start thinking what kind of panel you want. Smaller and more efficient panels can be the best option for your home.
6.1 – When thinking about the amount of energy from the solar energy system, be sure to consider all the factors. The classifications on the panels are only in ideal situations. Trees, cloudy skies and a number of other factors can reduce this number.
6.2 – Finding reliable information about solar energy can be difficult. Now that we are reading this article, we are better educated and we know what it is about.
6.3 – We are even more informed of the benefits of solar energy, we will have these tips in mind when it comes to solar energy; but NEVER forget:
If we are thinking about installing photovoltaic solar panels, we will take note of the climate of the area to be used. That the panels capture a minimum of five hours of sunlight every day and, if we live in a climate where it snows a lot or there is a lot of cloudy weather, it is possible that solar energy will help us with more studied and better studied photovoltaic solar systems, but not impossible.
