Solar Energy Facts
Solar power is noise pollution free. It has no moving parts, and does not require any additional fuel, other than sunlight, to produce power.
A home solar panel system consists of several solar panels, an inverter, a battery, a charge regulator, wiring, and support materials. Sunlight is absorbed by the solar panels and is converted to electricity by the installed system. The battery stores electricity that can be used at a later time, like cloudy days or during the evening.
By relying on battery backup, solar energy can even provide electricity 24×7, even on cloudy days and at night.
