What is Solar Power?

Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity. Sunlight can be converted directly into electricity using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly with concentrated solar power (CSP), which normally focuses the sun's energy to boil water which is then used to provide power. Other technologies also exist, such as Stirling engine dishes which use a Stirling cycle engine to power a generator. Photovoltaics were initially used to power small and medium-sized applications, from the calculator powered by a single solar cell to off-grid homes powered by a photovoltaic array.

Shopping for a solar power system and choosing a solar installer can be an exciting time for many people, but as with any investment, you'll need to be careful who you deal with.

So If you're looking to install a solar power system, it is important to choose the right components to suit your individual requirements.

Installing a solar (photovoltaic or PV) power system is a great way of capturing the sun's energy to generate electricity at home.

Once your system is installed, it will help reduce your electricity bills and as well as your impact on the environment. Solar power systems are also low-maintenance and can increase the value of your home.

Solar power can be connected to the mains electricity grid or set up as a stand-alone system. If you connect to the grid you may still have an electricity bill. If you are still buying some electricity from the grid, consider buying GreenPower so that your home electricity comes from renewable sources.

If you install a solar power system at home, you could be eligible to receive renewable power incentives in the form of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs).

Advantages of solar power are many. Although solar power is an energy source that we have only recently tapped into, it may easily become the most important energy source of the future.

  • Solar power is a renewable and natural resource.
  • Solar power is non-polluting. Unlike oil, solar power does not emit greenhouse gases or carcinogens into the air.
  • Light and energy from the sun costs nothing. Once you purchase the equipment to collect and convert energy from the sun, it costs you nothing to run.
  • Solar cells require little maintenance.
  • Solar cells can last a lifetime.
  • Solar power is silent.
