To generate solar power for your home you will require a solar panel, or more than one depending on the amount of electricity you intend to use.
The most popular and accessible usage of solar power is when used to heat water. Solar hot water heaters can help vastly in lowering your electrical consumption.
Always consider the placement of your solar panels to absorb as much sunlight as possible throughout the day. Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells, so that when the sun reflects off the panel a reaction will take place enabling the sun’s energy to transform into electrical energy.
Some electrical knowledge will be helpful if you want to start a project alone, otherwise seek advice from someone who does.
