Generating electricity with sunlight has become the new trend of our time because solar tech has improved dramatically since its beginning. A number of large-scale solar power plants have been built across Europe, North America, Asia, Oceania and South Africa, which means solar power has gradually been accepted by us to generate electricity. However, residential solar power has only just begun but will become the new trend.
The residential power system is installed in a house and generates electricity to sustain the daily electricity use of the family. The system consists of solar panels, PV inverters, wires, racks, an power meter and other relevant solar components. PV panels are installed on your rooftop, and photovoltaic inverters can be installed either on your rooftop or in other places of your house. Although it requires an application for the installation from the local government, the whole installation process is easy and simple. The only problem is that you must have a roof.
In the United States many people live in houses rather than apartments which have no roofs. So, this is popular with large numbers of US civilians. In other continents such as Europe and Oceania where people usually live in houses and have roofs, home power systems must boom in the years to come. For China, Japan and India, it may not be that popular, for China and Japan have large populations, and India is too poor to go solar at home. Yet, in China there are still lots of people who are willing to go for China solar panels because they live in cottages or houses which provide a precondition for installing residential power plants. Large-scale PV power plants have become popular, and residential solar power system building is growing too.
Apart from the two preconditions, there are other reasons that going solar at home can bring you good profits. We usually use the electricity from the utility grid and so we pay money for it. Once this system is installed, we will never need to pay money for the electricity we use, because it is generated from sunlight by our own home. Utility grid’s electricity prices are rising, which makes us feel insecure or anxious. If there is such a system, the upset feeling will disappear. Going solar at home also means you can earn money by generating electricity on your own. Each of the governments which advocate going solar has subsidized the industry. Therefore, you will have subsidies when you choose PV power. Besides, if you have unused electricity, you can transit it back to the utility gird for money.
Finally, the home PV power system can help protect the environment and save land as well. If more solar power systems are built up, less biofuel emission will be released into the air. It will make the air clean and slow down climate change. Building large-scale solar power plants is a great choice for protecting the environment, but it will occupy large acres of land. From this point, installing a tiny solar power plant at home must be the choice for us. Customization is what we like today, and installing a tiny power station is customization. More and more people will swarm to install this system, and more electricity will be generated by these systems in the years to come.
