Solar Systems for Homeowners

Solar power is the renovation of sunlight into electrical energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or not directly using concerted solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to center a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic alters light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two forms of solar energy necessitates the manufacture of two discrete forms of solar panels.

One is named a solar collector that is used to heat up water and then supply it in a tank for distribution when wanted. The other type of panel is called a solar panel, or more officially, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels accumulate the light radiation from the Sun and switch it into direct current electricity, which can then be changed to alternating current using an inverter. Intense Solar Power (CSP) systems utilize lenses or mirrors and tracing systems to focus a huge section of sunlight into a little shaft of light.
