Do you want to reduce your carbon footprint? Have you always been interested in making your home more green? If this sounds like you, it’s time to consider solar energy as your step toward environmentally friendly living.
Solar energy is an emissions-free source of renewable energy that comes from the sun. The sun, which has been burning for more than 4 million years, is a fusion reactor and provides enough energy in one minute to supply the world with enough energy for one year.
Although the sun is an excellent resource, using solar energy to produce electricity is a relatively new concept and was only discovered in 1839. Fortunately, solar energy harnessing products are widely available and can help decrease your dependence on other sources of energy.
Live HomeWise has installed more than 20,000 solar systems in Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville and Longwood, FL, since first being formed in 1994. Privately owned and operated, Live HomeWise has the solar services to bring your home into the future of renewable energy.
When most people think of solar energy, they think of inefficient, bulky panels on the top of a house. But, solar energy technology companies are rapidly producing sleek, modern and efficient panels that are bringing in the future of green energy.
Photovoltaic systems, or what is used to turn the sun into electricity, are like other electrical power generating systems. While (PV) systems use different equipment, the basic principle behind operation and interfacing with other electrical systems is the same and, just like traditional electrical systems, are regulated by electrical codes and standards.
While a photovoltaic array produces power when exposed to the sun, other components work in conjunction to conduct, control, convert, distribute and store energy properly. Depending on the operational requirements of the system, specific components may include other major parts such as a DC-AC power inverter, battery bank, system and battery controller, auxiliary energy source and, in the case of appliances, a specified electrical load.
Batteries are in photovoltaic systems for many reasons including storing energy produced by the PV array and supplying that energy to electrical loads.
