There are several benefits of solar energy. Solar energy is not only a sustainable energy source, but solar is also renewable, and this means that it will never run out. Solar energy is the most natural source of energy that you will find to generate electricity. Solar power requires little maintenance. Once the solar panels have been installed on your tiny house building and are working at the maximum efficiency, there is only a small amount of maintenance that is needed each year to help ensure they are in working order. Solar panels are a silent producer of energy. There is absolutely no noise that is made from the solar photovoltaic panels as they convert sunlight into usable electricity. There are continual advancements in the solar panel technology which are helping to increase the efficiency and to also lower the cost of production, thus making solar, even more, cost-effective. During solar operation, solar electricity power plants produce zero emissions. Solar power is energy that is provided by the sun. This solar energy is in the form of solar radiation, which makes the production of solar electricity possible. Solar electricity can be produced directly from photovoltaic, PV, cells. Photovoltaic means light and electric. These cells are made from materials that exhibit the photovoltaic effect, as in when the sunshine hits the PV cell, the photons of light will excite the electrons in the cell and cause them to flow, which generates electricity. Solar energy produces electricity on demand, during the day especially on hot days when air-conditioners drive up the electricity demand. When in use, solar energy produces no emissions. One megawatt hour of solar electricity will offset about 0.75 to 1 tonne of CO2. PV solar panels are being used increasingly, both in the city and in more remote locations, to help produce electricity for households, communities and schools and to help supply power for equipment such as telecommunication and water pumps.
