Are you concerned about the integrity of the environment or perhaps looking for new ways to benefit from the energy the environment has to offer? Do you already own a specific energy system, and would like to lower your carbon emissions?
With the increasing effects of global warming and carbon pollution, environmental conservation has become a priority. Also, the cost of energy products is on the rise, thus switching to greener forms of energy that still allow you to meet the energy requirements for your home or business – an important step towards protecting our environment from further threats.
Have you considered switching to solar panels? They provide you with an effective energy source to meet your energy needs at a cost effective price. To get more information, simply contact us at Go Green Guys and our friendly staff will assist you with a tailor-made solution.
A solar panel converts sunlight into an electric current or heat used to provide electricity for home or building. Solar panels are constructed as a collection of elements of small solar cells that are spread over a large area to provide sufficient power. The larger the concentration of light that hits the cell, the more electricity or heat is generated.
Solar panels work by converting light photons into electricity through the solar photo-voltaic (PV) effect. This allows for direct conversion of sunlight into solar power, or electricity. Solar panels use layers of semi-conducting material, most commonly silicon. PV’s are measured by kilowatts peak (KWp)
This measures the rate solar panels generate energy at their peak performance with direct sunlight in the summer. Solar panel cells can either be mounted on rooftops or on the ground, alternatively you could have solar tiles fitted instead, thus completely replacing the existing rooftop.
Solar thermal systems work based on the process of solar thermal heating using the sun by absorbing the sun’s energy and then converting it into heat that can be transferred into your home or business to be used for hot water heating and space heating. The heat is generated from solar panels that are mounted on rooftops.
