The photovoltaic solar panel made the best use of nature’s bounties, and convert sunlight into direct current that generates electricity.
Why do you use a solar system for your house?
The solar panel incorporates the sun rays and transforms them into direct current, which in turn helps to generate electricity. Utility electricity in New York comes mainly from combusting natural gases. Though natural gases are superior to coal, still they emit a good amount of greenhouse gases. Therefore, the solar system is not only an environmentally friendly option but at the same time, saves your energy consumption and lowers the electricity bill cost. Additionally, one can also produce an extra unit of electricity through the grid and can sell it to other users nearby. It not only makes your home green but instead it’s called a green investment. The more energy you produce, the less you will buy from other suppliers, making you a self-reliant energy producer.
Why is the solar panel system good for your house?
We have already discussed the primary benefits of installing a solar panel system in residence; however, there is a broad-spectrum of advantages we can derive from it. Not only it helps to reduce greenhouse emissions and lower electricity bills, but it generates electricity during peak hours. The time-frame of 11:00AM-16:00 PM, the energy tends to be much higher compared to the dawn and dusk. Solar energy output reaches the crest during these hours. The rates of electricity can be decelerated at this time than compared to the night hours. A significant amount of energy is lost during transportation and distribution from the production points to the supply points. Though the energy losses are not considered essential, yet it affects the performances in an area with a high density of population.

Besides, grid security is also improved as the production centers are spread out extensively. This augments the grid security in a crisis like human disasters, overloads, etc. Some states even offer an additional tax credit for installing a solar panel system. This state credit allows you to deduct a part of your cost for the solar panel system from state tax bills. In a whole, solar panels are eco-friendly, convenient to install, generate renewable energy, help in saving money and produce a source of income too.
How much power can you produce?
The energy output of a solar panel is calculated in watts. Generally speaking, a residential solar panel has a power output of around 265 watts, though the range can vary somewhere between 225watts and 350watts. It relies on certain factors like the condition of the sky, i.e. whether cloudy or normal, peak hours of sunlight (11:00AM-16: 00 PM), etc. One can simply calculate this by the wattage with a number of sunlight hours. Example: 280 watts of solar panel receives sunlight for 6hours then it will produce (280×6)= 1680 watt-hours electricity a day.
Solar panels costs
In the year 2019, the general price of a solar panel in New York was $3.19 per watt. The typical size system in the USA is 6000 watts (6 kilowatts), and the average cost for a solar panel system in New York State is $19,140. However, companies give rebates and discounts on these price label and also, some state allows state credit to promote solar panel installations.
