Introduction to Solar Energy – Solar Panels
If you don’t mind; Solar energy is simply, energy provided by the sun. This energy is in the form of solar radiation, which makes the production of solar electricity possible.
Electricity can be produced directly from photovoltaic, PV, cells. (Photovoltaic literally means “light” and “electric.”) These cells are made from materials which exhibit the “photovoltaic effect” i.e. when sunshine hits the PV cell, the photons of light excite the electrons in the cell and cause them to flow, generating electricity.
According to WikiPedia, Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis.
It is an important source of renewable energy and its technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on how they capture and distribute solar energy or convert it into solar power.
Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic systems, concentrated solar power and solar water heating to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light-dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.
Reasons to Consider Using Solar Energy
1. Solar Energy is Good For the Enviroment:
The most common known benefit concerning solar power is, that it is a clean, green source of energy, that pollutes less than almost every other source of energy.
Solar power doesn’t produce greenhouse gasses and it doesn’t pollute water or any other part of nature. Other than that, solar power is almost self sufficient, and only requires a little water to work.
2. No Cost on Electricity:
The price for electricity usually differs through the day, being more expensive in the middle of the day and in the early evening.
Because power plants create a relatively steady output of electricity, the prices rise and fall throughout the day, based on the before mentioned change in demand. With solar power, you can avoid this rise in price, and get cheap energy all day.
3. It Helps in Security:
When we have a lot of people generating energy with solar power, we are less likely to experience blackouts. Each house with solar cells on it, functions as a small power plant, which provides us with a great grid security, in cause of human-caused or natural disasters.
Is it Worth Using Solar Energy in Nigeria?
Yes! it worths it. In a country like this, I think using solar energy can help to increase productivity in homes and offices without any noise pollution.
You can use solar energy to power street lights. You can also use it in powering all indoor appliances like refrigerators, home theatre and fans.
Solar power can also be used in pumping water in the compound. In offices, it can be used to power all electronics gadgets also. Many big firms have it as their main source of light, so why not give it a try.
The best part of it is that Foreign Solar Nigeria Limited has made it budget-friendly unlike it was before. Now, both the poor and the rich can fix it in their houses for one or two uses.
