If you own a house, you may be looking for ways to save money and energy. Solar panels are a great way to do both because aside from the upfront cost of installing them on your roof, you only need to let the sun do the work. However, of course solar panels are not a magic fix and there are things you should know about them before you decide to invest. The initial cost can be a lot, after all, and you need to be sure that they will work the way you expect them to.
In this video, you will learn how solar panels work. With this information, you should have a better understanding of what you’re buying.
Solar panels are made up of solar cells intertwined with conductive materials. The choice in materials creates a negative and positive side, similar to batteries. When particles from the sun hit these materials, they will be guided by the opposite charges to send charge, or electricity, toward whatever needs powering.
