How Solar Panels Work: A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding Solar Energy 

March 20, 2024

In India, while many people are considering investing in solar energy, understanding its basics remains a challenge for most. In this article, we’ll delve into the fundamentals of solar panels and solar energy. 

Solar energy involves harnessing sunlight through photovoltaic (PV) cells, which convert it into electricity. Simply put, when sunlight hits solar panels, a chemical reaction occurs in the cells, transforming sunlight energy into usable electricity for our daily needs. This electricity is typically measured in kilowatts (kW). The amount of sunlight reaching the Earth’s surface is calculated using mathematical formulas, and kW measurements indicate how much energy solar panels can ideally produce in an hour of direct sunlight. 

Solar panels play a crucial role in converting sunlight into power. But how do you determine how many solar panels your household or commercial space needs? It’s quite straightforward. You can calculate the required number of solar panels by multiplying your hourly energy requirement by the peak sunlight hours for your area and then dividing it by the wattage of a panel. If this sounds complex, don’t worry – you can always consult an expert from APS (Contact)to determine the ideal size of solar panels for your home or office. 

The electricity generated by the cells is stored in installed batteries, which act as the lifeline of the solar system. From these battery banks, electricity powers your entire household. Depending on your electricity usage, you’ll need to install the appropriate number of panels. More panels mean more electricity generation, allowing for unlimited usage without worrying about electricity bills. Your appliances, lights, and other electrical devices will now be powered by solar panels, ultimately reducing your electricity bill to zero. 

But what about excess electricity? You have the option to sell it back to the grid. Put simply, you can use as much electricity as you need, and any surplus will automatically be sent to the grid by your battery. The government will compensate you for selling this excess electricity, offering you an additional source of income. Not only does solar energy eliminate electricity bills, but it also provides an opportunity to earn money by selling surplus electricity to the grid. 

Interesting Right? But what’s even more intriguing is that this entire process is environmentally friendly. With no pollution or emissions involved, solar energy offers long-term benefits for both individuals and the planet. Additionally, reputable solar companies like Australian Premium Solar offer warranties of up to 25+ years on solar panels, ensuring that your investment is secure and reliable.
