As long as your home has adequate roof space and the correct orientation to the sun, a solar power system could provide all of the electricity for your home. Because of a problem with one or the other of these requirements, many homeowners who would otherwise be interested in solar power have not been able to take advantage of the technology. The result would have been solar panels that didn’t produce enough energy to justify installation costs. Some hope has been given to these homeowners in recent years by the increased efficiency and tolerance of sunlight angles of modern solar panels. Long Island Solar Panel Provider are based on improved solar cell technology and better manufacturing techniques that provide a better solution for all solar power installations. The newer solar cells used in modern panels can offer homeowners better energy generation than cells that were available even a few years ago because of several different improvements.
Their main advantage is that they can produce more energy from less sunlight than older cells. This is good for homeowners since it means that they are more effective for longer portions of the day. The number of hours per day the older panels could be used was more limited because they required the sun to hit them more directly. When the sun was hitting the panel at a steeper angle, these panels would generate little to no energy, like in the early morning or late afternoon. If there were any clouds at all, even if the sun could shine through them, these panels couldn’t generate power consistently. These newer panels will help many homeowners justify the cost of installing a solar power system because they will produce more power in all levels of sunlight. They can also allow people with homes that have less than perfect alignment with the sun to justify a solar installation because of the additional power they will produce.
Another benefit of these newer solar panels is that the average home will need fewer of them to generate enough electricity to eliminate their electric bill. This also means the solar power system will be less expensive since there will be fewer panels used. This can make a significant different for people with limited roof space. One final advantage that these newer solar panels provide is their longevity. Ten to fifteen years was the average life span of older panels. After about 10 years the panels would slowly degrade until they were unusable. The solar panels would start to slowly fail as one by one the solar cells failed. The collection of solar cells would generate less and less energy as more and more of its cells failed. Because these newer solar cells are far more durable, they will last longer than the older versions and also generate more electricity for longer as well.
