This is because people are using wide varieties of appliances, electronics as well as electrical gadgets in their homes for ease and convenience of work. It is quite obvious that power utility bills are also increasing with increased consumption. The only way to minimize the bills is by using renewable sources of energy for power production. And in this regard, there is nothing better than that of solar power.

Solar power is being harnessed in extensive manners globally and quite a huge percentage of power requirements is being met with the same. There was a time till which solar energy was being used for commercial sector only as the initial cost of installing solar panels and other things was quite high.

It has been seen that many homes are using solar power now. You definitely have a fair idea of the power consumption of your home each month and you can plan for solar power in a likewise manner. Solar panels or solar cell systems have to be installed in the house for trapping solar energy. It is not only important to have an open roof or a large yard for this. It is also important to ensure that there are no obstructions of any kind like buildings, trees or other houses. When the panels are installed in an area with no obstructions, it can absorb the maximum amount of sunlight in the most effective manner.

There are many places where sunlight is abundant, but there are too many obstructions around. In such places and areas, solar energy is not the right kind of renewable source of energy. Fuel cells or wind energy can be thought of other options in such areas. The solar energy which is trapped in the solar panels can be converted into electrical energy and used in the home as per needs.

Are residential and commercial solar panels different?

Though the concept on which solar panels work is the same for residential as well as commercial use, there is a slight difference in the solar panels which are used. Solar panels which are used for commercial purposes have huge capacities and they have the capacity of powering a company’s complete operations or even power a town completely. The scale and the cost of the panels are quite high due to obvious reasons.

On the other hand, residential solar panels are smaller and fewer in numbers. Residential solar power systems have a capacity of holding approximately 5 kilowatts of energy on average. It is true that this is quite a small scale, but the amount of energy saving which can be done is highly noteworthy. It is possible to save quite handsome amounts of money with such steps. The affordability of the panels for home use has also made it a viable option.

Cost of installing solar panels for home

With increasing demands of solar panels for residential usage, many companies are manufacturing the same. Initially the costing of these panels was quite high, but with time they became pretty affordable. The company from which you purchase the panels will come and install them in the area of the house where it will work most effectively. Charge of maintenance is also taken by the company. Initially the cost of installation of the solar panel at home might seem to be pretty expensive, but the savings that it will make will become effective in the long run.
