How Does Solar Work?

Solar energy is the energy produced by the sun and is used to generate electricity. Solar panels are the most common way to capture and convert solar energy into electricity. They are made of photovoltaic cells that absorb sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. The solar inverter will convert this DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity to power your loads.

Is Solar Worth It?

Having a solar or the sun energy is an investment that can save you money in the long run. The initial cost of purchasing and installing solar panels can be expensive, but the cost of solar energy is lower than traditional energy sources. Solar energy also  increases your home’s value, and the Kenyan government does offer tax credits and other incentives to make solar energy more affordable.

The amount of money you can save will depend on the following: 

  1. The size of your solar system.  
  2. The amount of sunlight your area receives. 
  3. The amount of electricity you use. 

The more sunlight your area receives and the larger your solar system, the more money you are going to  save.

Sun energy can also reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and it  helps to reduce our carbon footprint.The  solar energy has become increasingly popular, and to find solar panels and other solar products is becoming much easier.
