Best Renewable Energy Sources

Solar energy is one of the best renewable energy resources, which is clean green electricity produced directly from sunlight or in some cases, by heat from the sun. The installation of solar power systems in residential areas usually means the installation of solar photovoltaic or solar thermal systems on the roof.

Solar power is a free renewable source of energy which, unlike finite fossil fuels, is sustainable and completely inexhaustible. It is also an environmentally friendly source of energy and does not emit greenhouse gases when producing electricity. Solar energy has been transforming power around the world’s market from the rooftop to large-scale farms. Since 2007 to 2017, the installation process of photovoltaic modules has been increased by 4300% in the world.

Along with the solar panels, that convert sunlight into electricity, Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems are also used that utilizes mirrors to concentrate solar heat and instead divert thermal energy.

Solar energy can supplement all or part of your energy consumption. With solar power, you can lower your energy costs and save money. Installing solar panels, low maintenance and discreet enhances the value of your home. Solar energy has also been used as a source of heating and cooling.

Types of solar power installations

There are two main types of solar power systems i.e. grid connect and off grid (standalone/remote power) installations.

  1. With a grid connection system for businesses or private households, your home or property is always connected to the power grid, so no battery storage is needed. A grid-tie installation ensures that you have the power you need whenever you need it – automatically and whatever the conditions.
  2. An off-grid power system is based on the battery bank to store the electricity produced by solar panels. Off-grid power systems usually used in rural areas or outback areas where the main grid connections are not available or the connection is prohibitively expensive.
