Solar panels are quite expensive, but the benefits provided in the supply of energy using solar power system at home is very large. As for the selection and installation of solar panels at home is not easy, but here are suggestions that you can consider in choosing solar panels at home.
– Learn how solar panels work
Solar panels work by accommodating the received sunlight through a semi conductor plate on the surface of the solar panel. Sunlight allows the electrons in the solar panels to move, and the movement generated electrons will generate electrical energy. Some electrical appliances in your home may need AC power, for that you need other equipment to convert DC electrical current into AC, ie inverter.
– Check the condition and availability of supporting equipment before installing the solar panel
Because solar panels are devices that will be installed in your home, check the readiness and completeness of your home, whether your home allows for installation of solar panels. And to convert DC power generated solar panels into AC power, then you need another support device that is inverted. This inverter allows you to drain the AC power to an electronic device that does require AC power such as TV, refrigerator, air conditioner, and others.
– Submit the process of installing solar panels to a skilled person
If you do not really understand about electrical appliances, it is better you hire a contractor or electrician to do the installation. But make sure that the cost you spend to hire an electrician is not too big because your initial goal in installing solar panels is to save on expenses, especially spending on monthly electricity bills.
– Allocate the budget you will spend on the process of installing solar panels
Since solar panels are not an easy device to install in a house, some of these solar panel installations sometimes take more than 1 day. The more days it takes for the installation of the solar system means the more money you spend, especially to hire the installation services of solar panels.
– Install solar panels outside the rainy season
Because the rainy season is always marked with cloudy, then the intensity of sunlight will certainly decrease. Reduced intensity of sunlight will make the sunlight that can be received by solar panels will also decrease as well. If that happens, then the electrical energy to be generated is also much less. For that, choose the installation of solar panels in the dry season where the intensity of sunlight is quite abundant.
