Since half a century power is generated through oil, coal, and gas and the combustion of the fossil fuel has led a dramatic impact on the atmosphere. A great damage to the local ecosystems has been caused in the form of acid rain and pollution that has further been a prime reason behind the climatic change. The rising concern over the environment has forced people to think of other alternative of power generation that is both environment safe and energy efficient. This has been the main reason behind the invention of the solar panels that has reduce dependency on fossil fuels to generate electricity to a great extent. The solar panels have been useful in keeping the atmosphere free from the fossil fuels harmful emissions.
Solar panels are devices used to collect solar energy from the sun on its semiconductor panel that can be later converted into electrical energy. The use of these solar panels have proved to be great energy saver as well as environment friendly. This clean and highly efficient panels will drop the electricity bill to a great extent and the use of right panels will also assure that every electrical product in the house is powered with the help of these solar panels. However the main reason behind the domestic use of these solar panels is heating the home as well as producing hot water. The great utility of these solar panels has not only been proved in some countries only but people of poor countries are also using the smaller version of these panels to cook food.
Solar panels not just prove efficient in reducing electricity bills but these ate also helpful in reducing carbon footprint thereby contributing in a cleaner and greener earth. These panels in combination with inverter, batteries, and special wiring are used to produce electricity and several other things along with their use in space satellites. This form of energy can be utilized in endless option and still lot of work has to be carried out to harnessing this solar power to its full potential. It has been proved that just an hour of daylight can produce enough energy for the entire population of the earth for the period of one year. This fact has shown great prospective to the people working on these solar panels so that inexpensive and easily available energy can be produced.
