It may sound complex. But solar is simpler than you think.
At UNIfied Energy Services, we aim to take the complexity out of the solar process to make it easy to understand, quick and affordable, for your family. Let’s get started!
How does solar power work, anyways?
The benefits of solar don’t end with lower power bills. Cutting carbon pollution? Tick. Empowering communities? Tick. Creating good jobs? Tick and tick.
Today, solar power is everywhere – from home roofs to Ikea superstores to the Mojave Desert in California! And thank goodness. It’s a win-win solution to the climate crisis that creates jobs, saves money, and helps cut the carbon pollution changing our planet.
Plus, when it comes to energy, solar might be the closest thing to free money out there – and we haven’t even begun to harness its full potential. Why? Well, consider this fact from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory: More energy from the sun strikes the Earth in an hour than all of humanity uses in a year.
How do solar panels work?
According to Live Science a solar panel “works by allowing photons, or particles of light, to knock electrons free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity.” That’s a technical way of saying that the panel’s photovoltaic cells convert the energy in sunlight to electricity (specifically, direct current (DC)). This DC electricity is then converted to alternating current (AC) by an inverter. AC is the type of electrical current you typically use when you plug anything into a residential wall socket. If you have solar on your roof, the system’s electrical panel sends power to your lights and appliances.
