The Basics of Solar Power – What You Need to Know About Solar Energy

If you have been considering investing in solar energy, then here are some solar power basics to help you guide your decision. To start, solar power is the conversion of energy from the sun into usable electricity. Solar power products capture light and heat from the sun and convert it into clean energy that you can use to power your home or other buildings. As solar power is both a sustainable and environmentally sound source of power, it has been growing in popularity among homeowners in your area. Plus, it allows homeowners to depend less on electricity from the electric companies, reducing their energy bills. That is why you have likely been seeing so many homes, as well as schools, stores, and office buildings in northern California, with solar panels and other solar power products harnessing the power of the sun.

Types of Solar Power Products

While there are several types of solar power products, here at Byers Solar, we offer some unique options to our client to help them maximize their solar power usage. The most common are our SunPower® panels that can help you generate more watts per square foot than any comparable solar panels. We can also install tubular lights. While they won’t offer the same level of solar power, they can help you reduce energy use by providing ample light during the day while charging an in-tube battery that can power a soft-glow nightlight or a bathroom exhaust fan after dark. Plus, we can install other Solatube products to help increase your home’s efficiency and reduce monthly energy costs.

Additional Benefits of Solar Energy

The ability to power your electrical appliances, air conditioning, lighting, water heaters, and other areas of your home are not the only benefits of solar power. You will also help decrease your carbon footprint, which has a major impact on the environment. Many homeowners also receive a generous federal tax credit and the opportunity to receive full retail value for their self-generated solar power.
