Solar Panels can produce electricity to both commercial and residential buildings by capturing energy from the sun and convert it to electricity. These solar panels use photovoltaic cells to capture the sunlight, and contrary to popular belief do not need to be in direct sunlight for them to work, meaning that even on a cloudy day, the panels will still generate electricity to run different appliances and lighting.
Research in solar energy dates back to 1839 when Alexandre Edmond Becquerel discovered the link between sunlight and electric energy, with a number of patents for products being used with solar energy being filed for in the years following.
Solar energy is a cost efficient, green way of producing electricity for any building and does not produce harmful emissions like carbon dioxide or other pollutants whilst converting the energy. (Some governments even pay you for the energy you produce…even if you’ve already used it!). Famous buildings such as the White House and the Vatican have also installed solar panels to their roofs to provide energy and reduce their carbon footprints!
