What is Solar Energy?
According to Wikipedia…
Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the sun harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, solar 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 the way 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.

Maintaining Solar Panels on Your Home
Powering your home using solar energy requires some maintenance. But not much…
Solar panels are built with no moving parts. They are a completely stationary system. Once they’re installed, there’s not a lot that can go wrong. It is however, important to keep the panels clean. Too much dust buildup and bird droppings on the panels can reduce the amount of sunlight striking them. Resulting in a reduction of the amount of electricity produced.
Home solar panel maintenance is not something that needs to be done once a week. You normally only have to hose the panels down one to four times a year. You shouldn’t need to get on the roof. A hose and nozzle from ground level usually works.
We do however recommend having the panels inspected by a qualified professional. This will ensure proper installation and functionality. Alway consult the manufacture for proper maintenance guidelines.
