Individual businesses are realising the benefits of adopting solar power. It simply makes sense for businesses to cut operating and production costs by using solar energy. Once a solar power system is installed, the monthly cost of electricity is either eliminated or greatly reduced. With a manufacturer’s guarantee of 10-12 years and a performance warranty of up to 25-30 years for some solar panels, solar power is a long term investment that pays for itself and pays off.
Solar power not only allows businesses to reduce their reliance on the grid but also to cultivates a favorable reputation. Public perception of businesses who are using alternative energy sources unrelated to fossil fuels is very favorable and gives perspective customers another reason to do business with a company.
Additionally, the government offers a federal solar rebate, which allows homeowners to achieve a deduction of approximately 30% of the cost of installing a solar energy system making Solar Power more affordable.
So, what exactly is solar power, how does it work and how does a business get started on adopting it?
Solar power is generated when sunlight is converted into electricity. Solar photovoltaic technology converts the energy of the sun directly into electricity using photovoltaic cells. These photovoltaic cells are present in the well-known solar panels that we see on solar farms in the country and on rooftops in the neighborhoods.
Once the energy is generated, it is transferred via an Inverter which converts it from DC electricity into 240 V AC electricity. This new form of electricity can then be used by the business and stored by the grid.
