What is Solar Power?
Solar panels are made from cells called photovoltaic cells. The word “photovoltaic” comes from the word “photons”, which are particles that make up sunlight, and the word “volts”, which is a measurement of electricity. These solar cells can convert the energy from the sun into electricity. When the the sun hits the top of the panel, move to the top side of the cells. This causes voltage to form between the top and the bottom layers of the cell. When an electric circuit is forms, current will flow, and powers your home.
Why should you consider solar?
Lower your electricity bill
With rates continuing to rise, you can lower the cost of your bill by supplementing your electricity with the solar power you generate. If you generate more power than you use, you can sell it back to the grid and make money!
Solar allows you to be self-reliant from the electric grid, which has recently been an issue in Texas.
Increase your homes resell value
Solar panels not only help you save money, but they can help you make money when it comes time to sell your home.
