Solar energy is a type of renewable energy generated by the Sun and converted through current technology into a source of electricity supply, completely suitable for all our homes. This conversion is carried out through so-called “photovoltaic solar panels”. Each of the photoelectric cells that make up these panels receive sunlight and transform it into electrons, which flow freely, becoming the basis of the electricity that we are going to generate.
What are the benefits of solar energy?
-It is 100% clean .
It contributes to the sustainability of the environment by reducing the carbon footprint, since it takes advantage of the heat and light of the Sun without generating greenhouse gases, which are harmful to our planet. It does not emit toxic substances or air pollutants.
– Allows self-sufficiency.
It provides us with independence from the electricity grid, mainly in those cases in which the connection to it is difficult or of poor quality (rural or isolated areas), which allows us to have electricity in remote places.
– Inexhaustible energy.
Taking into account the billions of years of life that the Sun has left, we can speak of an energy source that ensures a continuous and unlimited supply.
– Economic savings.
The initial investment pays off quickly, since we save up to 70% of the price of traditional electricity supply, as well as dependence on fluctuations in its prices. In addition, the self-supply of energy also allows us to sell surpluses, generating income for those who have decided to carry out the installation of our photovoltaic solar panels.
– The energy of the future.
According to Greenpeace reports, photovoltaic solar energy will supply electricity to more than two-thirds of the world’s population by 2030.
