We all know that the sun offers us an innovative way to create electricity. All we have to do is point some solar panels to the sky and convert that energy into usable power! The only downside with solar energy is that it can take an awfully long time to generate that electricity!
The good news is that developments in the industry mean that we have access to better technology. What that means for green energy advocates is we can create sustainable energy faster. Here are some of the examples that we can take advantage of today:
Long Lasting Batteries
As you know, any electricity received from photovoltaic panels gets converted into DC energy. That power then gets stored in an array of batteries. One of the struggles that solar energy advocates had was using batteries that offered a long life.
Today, battery manufacturers have succeeded in achieving that goal. As an aside, today’s batteries take up less floor space without compromising on capacity.
Did you know that photovoltaic solar panels are available in different construction types? Ones made out of monocrystalline cells are the most efficient and even work well in low light levels.
Many people assume that solar PV panels must get fixed to static roofs. What might surprise you is that they can track the direction of the sun! That’s made possible with the use of motorized bases.
So, now that you know how to get the most out of the sun, all that’s left is to live somewhere sunny! Check out the top ten “solar cities” in the United States:
