The environment is changing, fast. The world is getting warmer, and our environmental impact is growing to astronomical levels. With how heavy our carbon footprint is becoming, it is proving deadly to animals, plants, and humans alike, and it is obvious to all that we need to be conscious of our effect on the Earth and try to make a change.
Not to mention that with the scarcity of fossil fuels, prices for energy are growing exponentially over the years, making it extremely hard to be able to afford to live without making some kind of change.
That is where solar energy comes in. Solar energy is clean, and thus has a very small, if not nonexistent carbon footprint, making it completely green energy. As long as there is sun shining in the sky, solar panels of all kinds can harvest the energy from the sun, and convert it into electricity to use to power your home and devices.
Solar energy has become increasingly popular for home and personal use, as there are even phone chargers out there that have solar energy panels that will charge yourphone, there are lots of devices that can be used with solar energy, and most importantly there are solar panels you can use for your home to supplement your power usage, or even replace it completely.
Benefits Of Solar Grid Ties
There are two main ways to use solar energy for your home. The first way is to have a standalone unit that powers batteries and other devices you use to get electricity in your home. This can be beneficial if you live in a place that doesn’t get a lot of sun, since the batteries will have stored energy throughout the sunny time to use in emergency, or times with little or no sun.
The more popular way to use solar panels is to use solar grid ties on your roof, which can not only be used to power your house in a sunny city like Winnipeg, which is considered one of Canada’s sunniest cities.
With that many sunny days a year, a solar grid tie style solar panel system on your roof can easily generate enough money to power your home, and with solar grid ties, unlike standalone solar panels, the extra energy can be converted into cash and your power company will pay you for any extra energy you have, which could generate enough credits with them that during the non sunny days, you still don’t have to pay for electricity.
