Home Solar Electric- Clean Solar Power to Reduce Home Electricity Bills


The world is heading towards a power outage, if we don’t resort to renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind or hydro energy. As per statistics, the non-renewable sources of energy are almost used up, and within 2050, half of the world will have to depend on solar energy and other renewable sources of energy to sustain the livelihood of human beings in planet earth. Now, on the verge of extinction of fossil fuels and other non-renewable sources of energy, solar power has grown up to be the ablest contender for the replacement of fossil fuels.

Today, solar energy is being harnessed all over the world, for its efficiency in providing electricity to residences, which makes it the fastest growing renewable energy source for residential purposes. For the last 150-200 years, mankind has severely depended on fossil fuels to power their home and automobiles. But, as we said, the limited non-renewable resources are ending up fast, and hence, in future times the prices are meant to go up, which would again inflate our electricity bill. Therefore, to take up some step against a future inflation of electricity bill, some people have started trying out new alternatives, and one such alternative is using solar power to light up their homes. Now, in this article, we will explore how solar power can help us reduce our home electricity bills, and how can solar energy be actually effective in bringing up a mass change in the current scenario of extinction of resources.

Now, the most important thing to build or to know about solar power harnessing at home or in a small basis is about solar cell. Solar cell is nothing but a type of battery, which when kept under the sun for too long, stores energy from the sun, and hence is capable of using as a power source. Now, the next building block which comes in, are the solar arrays. Solar arrays are nothing but an assortment of solar cells. Whenever the solar cells, or the photovoltaic cells are exposed to sunlight it will store the sunlight and later, would be a source to a small amount of electricity. When we link many solar cells together, in the form of a solar array, the electricity generated from all of the solar cells are substantial enough to generate electricity for a full scale family environment.

To take the maximum advantage of the photovoltaic cell or the solar cell, it is kept at the rooftop, so that it can take in the maximum sun rays, and store it in battery bank. This battery bank stores in the power all throughout the day, which helps us to harness power even at night. Now, since the battery bank hold the DC power, hence, we also need an inverter in the setup which can convert the DC power in to the AC power, so that we can use the energy for household purposes.


As more and more years go by, and non-renewable resource of energy deplete, people will turn towards this renewable source of energy. The concept of solar energy is pretty interesting, where we harness the free energy that we are getting from the sun, and then convert it in to free electricity.
