Many people living in Burbank have experienced a high rate of electric bills. In the residential area, the cost of electricity is higher by 25% compared to the whole country. The weather is sunny in many days in a year in Burbank. So, there is a need for them to start solar panels to reduce or limit the bills caused by electricity usage.
What is a solar panel?
It is a collection of solar cells that change light into electricity directly. All panel converts about 5 to 9% of light into electricity. The type of solar panel used matters. It is known as the output of the panel. The production of the panel has been improving due to the improvement of technology. Solar panels have semiconductor materials that turn light energy into electricity. A solar panel produces direct current. The current when used in a home, it should be converted to an alternating current flow of 230v. The converter is used to change the current and is integrated near the panel and combined with the electric circuit.
There are two generations of solar panels: the first and second generation. Three materials make solar cells often are;
- Amorphous silicon
- Monocrystalline silicon
- Polycrystalline silicon
Benefits of solar panel
There are benefits of Installing Solar Panels as discussed below;
1. Solar panel Offers Clean, Renewable Energy
Solar power reduces the reliance on coal, oil, and natural gas for the production of electricity. Solar energy is 100% clean, and it is renewable. Fossil fuel emits harmful emissions that affect the quality of soil, water, and air. Toxic products lead to global warming.
Solar energy does not lead to pollution. It protects the environment.
2. Gives You Freedom and Control over Electricity
The duration and frequency of power outage have increased in the last 15 years. This is according to research done by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. California has the most significant utility.
The grid should be modernized to meet the demand of a plugged-in society. The addition of a home battery unit can store enough power to be used by residents during peak hours.
3. You May Save on Your Current electricity Bills
You are likely to save when you use a solar panel instead of electricity. Even during the cloudy days, the sun emits energy through the bright and cloudy skies. Some solar panels produce more electricity than the amount consumed at home. This leads to a reduction in the electricity bill to zero in a month. You should check your region’s power guideline to look whether you qualify for a rebate.
4. Meet the requirements for Tax Breaks
There are state, local, and federal tax breaks due to the affordability of solar panels.
5. Costs Have Fallen due to the usage of solar panels
In recent years, the cost of solar has reduced. More money is saved on the
Maintenance. The cost of batteries used in the solar system has also reduced.
