Solar panels, or photovoltaic systems, transform sunshine into electrical energy. The products they are made from are extremely efficient at absorbing light. Each solar panel is merely a series of solar cells linked entirely and encased in a shielding enclosure with a clear face to enable sun to go into and a strong backing. The whole panel is sealed to prevent moisture from deteriorating the panel.
Solar power systems can produce sufficient electrical energy under ideal conditions to power all the lights and electrical appliances in a common American home as well as to keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The effectiveness of your solar powers really depends upon your location. Solar panels are set up on whichever surface area of your house gets most of solar exposure-in southern climates this is the north-facing side, and in northern climates it is the south-facing side.

Even if you do not get adequate sun to produce electrical energy to satisfy all of your energy needs, you can still benefit considerably by setting up solar panels for your home. The bulk of modern homes with solar panels set up are not entirely off-the-grid.
