What are the Advantages of Solar Energy?

Solar energy is derived from the sun’s radiation. The sun is a powerful energy source, and this energy source can be harnessed by installing solar panels. Did you know that the energy that it provides to the Earth for one hour, could meet the global energy needs for one year? We are able to harness only 0.001 percent of that energy. There is a reason why solar energy has become a trending topic when talking about renewables. While it has been widely criticised for being expensive or not very efficient, solar energy has now proved to be extremely beneficial - not only for the environment but also financially speaking. Additionally, due to the higher demand, the technology has been improved considerably, turning into a significantly efficient source of clean energy.
Advantages of Solar Energy
1. Renewable Energy Source Among all the benefits of solar panels, the most important thing is that solar energy is a truly renewable energy source. It can be harnessed in all areas of the world and …

SOURA AND EMERGING SOLAR PV TECHNOLOGIES

The larger aim of 100 GW power generation from solar PV under the national mission has entered on its crucial third and final phase. Authorities devise novel ways and methods of capacity added to the national grid, during the balance mission period.
Broadly, the plan was to achieve the objectives through two classifications namely Roof Top Solar and Ground-mounted systems. The predictions are not favouring a success under rooftop number. Therefore, new models are foreseen to meet RE share on grid capacity. 
Largely, three potential groups have emerged stronger. We will examine the projected contribution by these sources in the national energy mix.
Floating Solar Photo Voltaics (FSPV):
The foremost among the 'new generation' PV generator is Floating Solar PV. Hydro reservoirs are the targeted substitutes for land use. The floats, upon which Module mounting structure and PV modules are fixed, shall be materials combining various strengths:
a. Buoyancy factor b. Compatibility with drin…

How do On-Grid And Off-Grid Power System Work?

How Do On Grid Power Systems Work?


1.Photovoltaic solar panels mounted on your roof, or on a ground mounted frame, use the sun’s solar radiation to generate DC (Direct Current) electricity.
2. The electricity travels to a grid tie inverter, usually located near to the switchboard which converts the DC electricity into 230 volts AC (Alternating Current) as used in your home.
3. The energy generated can be used within the home or business first and any excess electricity is fed into the national grid. If there is little or no solar energy available because of bad weather or at night, energy is sourced from the national grid.
A two way (Import/Export) meter is installed in place of your existing meter, to measure the energy you feed in and take from the national grid.
How Do Off-Grid Power Systems Work?


1. Solar generation solar PV panels mounted on your roof, or on a ground mounted frame, use the sun’s solar radiation to generate DC (Direct Current) electricity. (Wind and water turbines are s…

Reasons Why You Should Use Solar Power?

People often ask themselves 'Why is solar energy good?' and, as a result, fail to realise the importance of solar technology. Solar power has evidently become the trend in renewable energy. Homeowners around India installed solar panels on their roof, managing accordingly to reap all the solar energy advantages.
Apart from the obvious financial benefits, there are other pertinent reasons why you should convert to using solar power instead of fossil fuels. What other reasons should you consider when going solar? Here are the compelling reasons.
1. Solar Power Is Good for the Environment The most commonly known fact about solar energy is that it represents a clean, green source of energy. Solar power is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. There’s nothing about solar power that pollutes mother nature. Solar power doesn’t release any greenhouse gasses, and except for needing a source of clean water to function, it uses absolutely no other resources. Hence, it’s safe and e…

Top Solar Energy Uses

Solar energy, solar power derived from the sun through the use of solar panels, is just one of the newest initiatives the "Going Green" movement has presented to us, in an effort to build and maintain renewable and sustainable power sources. As with any new addition to your home, there is always the initial cost of the components and installation cost to get it up and running.
Solar Powered Ventilation How would you like the sun's power to run bath fans, floor fans, and ceiling fans in your home?  Fans are widely used throughout the home to move air around for comfort, moisture, and smell control.  Think are heating and cooling within your home and cut down on the utility bills. Think about how many ceiling fans run in your home each day.  Now, think about how many bath fans run throughout the day,   How about floor fans and fans above the stove?  I think you'll agree, we all use fans to either keep us cool, circulate the air or discard unwanted air.  With solar powe…
