Solar energy is a renewable form of energy and it is sustainable energy. The solar energy doesn’t create any immediate pollution. Installing solar panels are a great way of cutting your electricity bills. Solar panels are made of photovoltaic cells and it will turn sunlight into electricity. There are two types of solar panels most of the solar panel suppliers offer. They are thermal panels and photovoltaic (PV) panels.
Solar panels are constructed as a collection of lots of small solar cells and that are spread over a large area to provide enough power. When larger the concentration of light hits the cell the more electricity or heat is produced. The solar panels work by converting light photons into electricity through the solar photovoltaic (PV) effect. This will allows the direct conversion of sunlight into solar power or electricity.
How long the solar panel last?
Solar panels usually have a 25-year manufacturer’s performance guarantee and also we get another 10 to 15 years of use beyond this. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) study says that in the case of installations of photovoltaic degradation, the average solar panel loses about half of a percentage point of efficiency per year. This means that a panel at the end of its 25-year warranty period should still be operating at about 88% of its original capacity.
Most attractive features of solar panel systems are their ability to endure the elements. Because these solar panels are designed to be out of doors for decades. That is the panel can go months without needing any maintenance. The main concern for solar panel maintenance is its cleanliness because dust or debris can block sunlight from the panels. Also, this dust can have the risk of scratching the surface of the panels because the surface is incredibly smooth. Every panel has a protective coating to help guard against any detrimental damage, but the safest is to have professional clear major debris as soon as possible.
It’s good to purchase a solar panel cleaning kits and it contains a liquid soap, a wiper, a small brush. This makes easy for us to clean panels more easily. In the case of certain stains such as the stains of bird droppings that can be very difficult to clean. So that it is better to hire a professional than to risk damaging your solar panels.
Install a monitoring system helps to know about the performance of your solar panels. When the performance goes done we can understand the maintenance is required. In this system, we can track the amount of energy produced by the solar panel, diagnose problems through your monitoring system and also much-advanced monitoring are available.
Installing a solar panel is always a good decision and its important to choose the right panels. This will help to enjoy the full benefits of your solar panels for many years to come and also it helps to keep them working in top condition.
