The Solar panels act as a medium to capture the sun’s rays and to transfer the light energy contained in it to electrical energy. With today's technology, we are able to capture the sun’s radiation and turn it into usable forms of solar energy - such as heating or electricity. In order to be able to benefit from the use of solar energy, there are a few facts you should know. Knowing these facts can assist you to make use of solar power as a clean energy source for your home.

Solar energy is completely environmental friendly, producing absolutely no carbon emissions or other harmful byproducts whatsoever. Solar energy can be used successfully and cost-effectively just about anywhere on the planet. You do not need to live in a tropical or desert climate in order to benefit from the use of solar energy.

Solar energy can be used for heating homes effectively in cold climates, as well as in warm climates. In fact, for decades now, solar heating has been in use several cold-climate northern European countries. Solar energy technology has advanced to the point where it can be now be a viable and cost-effective replacement for regular grid-electricity.

The word "photovoltaic" comes 2 words. "Photo" refers to light and "voltaic" refers to electricity. A photovoltaic array system changes solar energy collected from sunlight into electricity. Solar energy can provide the total electricity needed by a normal home that is energy efficient. Solar energy is quiet, easy to install, and needs little maintenance.
