As we all know Solar panels are made out of a lot of Photovoltaic cells. These photovoltaic cells absorb the sun’s energy and converts it to DC electricity. The sola inverter converts this DC electricity in to AC electricity. This AC electricity flows through and powers all the electronic devices and appliances in the premises. Excess electricity produced by solar panels can be fed to the electric grid.
When use solar energy that mean you generate your own energy through the sun for FREE by investing a capital amount to install the system to your roof. Saving money, will depend on your usage, installations cost, where you live and how much sun you can get per day etc.. Solar panels help to save money on your electricity bill. Because, when you use less power from the grid, you only have to pay LESS. As you know, the cost of electricity from the grid is rising, hence, more you generate your own power, more you SAVE. Additionally, any excess energy generate can be fed back on to the grid to offset your electricity bill depending on your electricity retailer and area you live. But keep it in mind, you need to stay in the same house for long enough to recoup the installation cost through savings on your electricity bill. Apart from that, by installing Solar panels might help to increase the property values and rental income as well. If you are selling your property, buyers might be willing to pay a higher price by considering rising electricity prices I Australia. And also, tenants might be willing to pay more to rent a property with solar panels where as they can save on electricity bill.
The good news is that solar panels can be installed on just about any roof type, but the installation process and mounting hardware can be varied.
