The current state of energy consumption indicates that an increasing number of individuals want to power their houses using solar energy. In a brief YouTube video titled ‘Basics and Benefits of Going Solar | SCE and Solar Power,’ Southern California Edison stresses the benefits of solar power over other sources of electricity. Additionally, the video explains the fundamentals of solar power.
As demonstrated in the video, solar panels absorb sunlight and convert it to power. It describes how each solar panel is composed of solar cells that generate direct current. Home appliances run on alternating current. An inverter is therefore needed to convert D.C to A.C.
The video further explains that by installing solar power in your house, you may get electricity from the solar power grid without interruption even at night, on wet or on cloudy days. However, not all solar panels are identical; hence, further consultation with your contractor is necessary before going completely solar power. Additionally, approval is required before installing solar power for security reasons.
