Regions such as North Texas with readily available sunlight are ideal for producing home solar power.
Solar energy is energy generated from the sun’s light or heat and is used to produce heat, light, hot water, electricity, and even cooling for homes and commercial buildings. There are two primary systems that create home solar energy:
PV Systems easily capture sunlight to power your home or business without restrictions or constant monitoring. The PV system can be blended easily into both traditional and nontraditional homes. The most common practice is to mount modules or an array onto a south-facing roof or wall. (100 square feet of un-shaded roof area per 1 kilo-watt of installed solar panels facing predominantly southward is ideal.) For an additional aesthetic appeal, some modules resemble traditional roof shingles or can be built right into glass skylights and walls.
In today’s market, PV panels can increase the value of a home by as much as $20,000 for every $1,000.00 saved in annual utilities. This value could actually increase as utility rates continue to rise. Texas law dictates that your homeowner’s taxes do not increase due to the added value of the solar system.
Another advantage to home solar power is that it is environmentally clean, minimizing the electromagnetic fields in the atmosphere. Solar power is a natural resource with no toxic emissions or hazards to you, your family and the environment.
In 2000, the Harvard School of Public Health studied the human health effects from two fossil-fuel-fired power plants in Massachusetts. It estimates that the air pollution from power plants causes:
