Solar energy is one of the most sustainable and renewable sources of energy because sun isn’t running out anywhere in the next billions of years. We can say the sun is just like one big battery for us. Solar energy is like that one infinite power source that is free and can be used every day. Solar energy can be used in various ways like to generate the electricity, heating buildings, heating water, cooking, etc. But only few know about the process through which it is generated. Solar energy panel is an absolute need of the hour because it is time for a sustainable energy policy which puts consumers, environments, human health and peace first. Did you know, every second the sun generates enough energy to sustain Earth’s needs for 50,000 years but the major question that arises here is how do we harness this power?
Following is the complete process with the equipment through which the solar energy is generated and made useful for daily chores:
• Solar Panels: Solar Power panels are well equipped with PV cells (photovoltaic cells) which help the panel to convert the sunlight into electricity (direct current- DC) throughout the day.
• Inverter: The process of converting the direct current electricity is then continued here by converting it to alternating current electricity (AC).
• Electrical Panel: The alternating current (AC) electricity is then transferred to the electrical panels installed in our homes which further power the various electrical appliances and of course the lights.
• Utility Meter: The main job of the utility meter is to measure the power used by you. It keeps a track on the power used at your home/building by going backwards and generating more energy than you need. This also helps you use the solar energy in the night.
• Utility Grid: Your home/business should be still connected to the grid in case you run out of solar energy during the night.
So now you know how solar energy is generated and how it works. It is high time when we think of the future and start using the sustainable resources, not just for the benefit of ours but of our future generation as well.
