Solar Power!

Solar panels are very instrumental in the process of building a green home.  Solarpanelinfo.com says, “Solar panels (arrays of photvoltaic cells) make use of renewable energy from the sun, and are a clean and environmentally sound means of collecting solar energy.”

According to howstuffworks.com, you must have a roof that has the correct orientation or angle of inclination to take full advantage of the sun’s energy, as well as the proper choice in battery.

hubpages.com tells of the pros and cons of solar paneling:

Pros:

  • solar panels do not release any pollutants into the air. The only pollution that is caused is when the panels are manufactured, the transportation of them, and the installation. Once they are installed they are not harmful to the environment.
  • Electricity that is produced through the use of solar panels is quiet unlike most machines that run on fossil and renewable fuels.
  • Solar energy has the ability to harness electricity in locations that are remote and are not connected to any national grid
  • the amount of money that you will save. When starting off you will have to invest a large sum of money. But once it is installed it will help to provide a free source of electricity that will pay itself off over the years.

Cons:

  • the amount of money you will need to start using it. The average price of highly efficient solar cells can be more than $1,000 and many houses and companies will need more than one
  • the weather will greatly affect the solar cells and the power that they can harness
  • The level of pollution in the area can affect the way that solar cells work. Businesses that want to use solar energy in highly polluted areas will have a harder time with this.
