A set of photovoltaic consist of silicon wafers which absorb sunlight form the atmosphere and convert it into electricity. The electricity so produced is direct current (DC) which we cannot use directly to run our daily household electronic or electric devices. In order to convert the DC into alternating current (AC) we need an electronic deice commonly know as solar inverter. The current so generated by using the direct current by the inverter is used to power our daily household electricity consuming equipments.

Direct Current Functions

Direct Current Functions

Direct Current represents flow of electrons in one direction with a regular strength. The flow of the electrons is from negative node to the positive one. To understand the flow of direct current one can take case of batteries commonly used in vehicles or even smaller batteries used in battery operated devices. Other examples of DC are solar power cells, solar power systems etc. Although, almost every electronic circuit operates on DC but the problem with DC is it cannot be transmitted to use it away form its original place of generation.

Alternating Current Functions

Conversely the alternating current (AC) continues change its direction and its strength also keep variations. Probably due to the rapid change in directions of the current on alternates it is named alternating current. Step-up and Step-down transformers are used to increase and decrease respectively the voltage power of AC. Due to this functionality the AC is easy to transmit from the location of its generation to the locations of its use.

The concerns regarding the global warming and the damage sustained by the environment as a result of increased carbon production are on rise. This situation is very detrimental to our eco-system and our environment and of course the ozone layer. The focus is now being shifted to ways of energy production that is environment friendly, cheap and efficient.

Go Green

Solar energy popularity and awareness is on the rise, ample information is now available about it everywhere from internet to magazines and papers. Solar cells and panels are easily available, with the advancement in solar technology, solar panel size has actually reduced and now it does not need a very big space to be installed. If looked after properly the solar panel may have a life that may spread over many years, so it would be one time investments and the profit would be reaped over for many years.

Go Green

You can contribute to the betterment of the environment by making optimum use of the solar energy, help save earth precious and fast depleting resources, controlling pollution and the carbon production. By helping in controlling the environmental damage you will also help yourself save a lot amount in lieu of energy bill and your dependence on the power supplying company will be greatly reduced.

The Solar Panels Available In the Market

A search on the internet shall bring you across a lot of websites that are offering residential energy alternatives, so your dependence on the electric companies may be minimized and the heavy amount that you pay them may be saved.
