The future of solar panel PV home systems
You’ve no doubt heard of solar energy – harnessing the sun’s power to light and heat your home, without the need for expensive energy bills every quarter, or monthly. You will also no doubt have noticed that the cost of heating and powering a house is increasing rapidly, and solar panel PV home systems is a cost-effective way in the long run to save money and also save the environment. Think karma points here, because that’s what will come your way, in a very positive manner!
What does tend to put people off is the initial outlay cost for having panels fitted on the roof of your house, and people sometimes consider these to be ugly. There are many developments going on at present, and also recently completed, which not only downsize the panels to make them more aesthetically pleasing, but also increase the efficiency, meaning more and more of us can benefit from solar power.
New developments in solar power mean that the industry is hoping to gain more customers in the future to speed up intake, which has been admittedly slow over the years. More intense marketing is being done to highlight the advantages, as well as initiatives to cut the cost of initial installation. Did you know that having a solar powered house can actually increase its value? Well it can, and its facts like this that are being pushed to the forefront in an attempt to increase users.
Obviously if you live in a particularly unsunny or dark area, then solar panel PV home systems might not be for you at the moment, however work is being done behind the scenes by companies to try and find ways to harness the sun’s power even in darker areas. This is by using multi-junctions and nanotechnology, which is evolving all the time. It has been found that by using multi-junctions, higher concentrations of sunlight can be harnessed.
The initial outlay cost is also potentially going to be lower in the future, thanks to leaps forward in the use of printed solar cells, which companies have found show potential in cost lowering for manufacturing. This means lower costs for the user. There is also research being done into solar windows as a way to generate electricity.
As you can see, the huge benefits to be had from using solar electricity and power are being driven home with increasing force, hoping to bring about a change in habit. Solar PV home systems, as a way of harnessing power, really do save money after the initial cost outlay. You could even find yourself making money by producing more energy than you need, and selling this back to power companies.
As a way to not only save the environment but also save money, solar energy must be considered a definite future big-hitter, and with massive developments coming through in the near future, hopefully cutting the initial cost of set up, more and more of us will be looking forward to a sun-fuelled household.
