Save Money On Solar Panels

Solar panels provide green energy to your household and reduce your carbon footprint. Additionally, they will cut your energy bill.

Solar Panel Overview

Have you ever considered supplementing your energy with a renewable and clean source? Perhaps you have thought about how producing some of your own energy with solar panels to cut down on your property’s energy bills? Do you have a south-facing roof, and want to utilise all the potential energy from the sun currently going to waste?

Solar panels could potentially be very beneficial to you, and can save you money while reducing your carbon footprint. The amount of money you can save depends on the position of your roof and how many panels will fit, but generally people find they save significant amounts on their energy bills. Some people find they generate enough energy that they can sell some of it back to the National Grid, which means for extra gains.

Brief History of Solar Panels

The process of harnessing electricity from sunlight, known as the photovoltaic effect, was discovered by Alexandre Edmond Becquerel in 1839.[1] However early cells were inefficient and costly to manufacture. In 1941, over a century later, the silicon solar cell was invented by Russell Ohl.[2] Early investors in solar technology were the US Government that used solar panels to power space satellites.[3]

As efficiently increased so solar panels grew in popularity, by the 1960’s photovoltaic cells had reached 14% efficiency.[4] New technology significantly reduced the cost of solar cells and by the 1970’s solar panels were being sold commercially. In December 2014 the world record for solar panel efficiency at 46% was achieved.[5]

Solar power has come a long way since then and is constantly developing; its potential as an energy source around the world is huge.
