Here are some additional facts that you need to know when using a solar energy system:

Solar energy is a kind of energy that is renewable, meaning, it is everywhere and it will not end. Of course, it is temporarily absent at night but will go back during the day.

Use of solar energy, especially in its conversion to useful electrical energy, will neither emit radioactive particles nor will it produce toxic wastes and harmful gases that might harm people and the environment.

Solar energy is useful in heating water, warming swimming pools, drying clothes, power appliances, and power water pumps and cars.

Solar energy peripherals may cost some expensive amount in the first installation but with a whole year's use, you will realize the cost you saved from your electric bills.

The surplus power you have generated from the solar energy system can be sold to a utility company where you can even earn while you use the system.

The level of efficiency and the amount of energy produced by the solar energy home system depends on the number of solar panels and the amount of sunlight in a certain area.

By using a solar energy home system, you can save a lot from gas and regular electric bills. By loyal use of this system, you won't even need to use gas and electricity from your utility provider.
