Qualifications for home solar energy systems are not complicated. Homes only need a minimum of 100 square feet of roof exposed to the sun, preferably facing southward; the panels will angle between 5 and 30 degrees. Installation is simple, too. Solar panels for the home (Solar photovoltaic or PV panels) are mounted on your roof, where they collect energy from sunlight. The cells then convert into a form of direct current electricity. That power is in turn converted by an inverter into alternating current electricity for home use. Alternating current electricity is fed directly into homes, the same as with your electricity company. Another home solar energy system advantage is it works in unison with your electricity provider; you continue to get electricity when home solar energy systems are not sufficient energy resources -- on cloudy days and night time.
Solar panels for the home hold up well in extreme weather, such as hail and strong winds, and require no maintenance from residents. Home solar energy systems last on average of about 25 years. Adding solar panels for the home are a home improvement, thus making your home appreciate in value.
The only consideration with installing home solar energy systems is aesthetics. It may be a challenge to find a high-performance location with low public visibility. But Abbott Electric, Inc. will assess your roof’s suitability and suggest the right size and type of solar panels for the home.
