Nowadays of energy crises, environmental climate change, global warming and waste management, the popularity of the solar energy use is becoming more and more evident. Many industries, factories, homes and buildings are in some way or another are tapping the sunís energy for its energy demands. These demands can be met by the use of solar panels.

Solar panels (arrays of photovoltaic cells) make use of renewable energy from the sun, and are a clean and environmentally friendly means of collecting solar energy. They are typically installed on rooftops, building tops, or stand-alone facilities.

These tips will give you an idea how you should install your solar panels:

  • It is important to install your solar panel where it gets so much sun exposure - you want to make sure your solar panel is maximally effective year round. To do this, there are several web-based solar resources to help you properly set up and install your solar panels by tracking the position of the sun in the sky over the course of the year.

  • Try to position your photovoltaic array (panels) directly under the noontime sun for maximum efficiency from your photovoltaic unit.

  • Remove all unnecessary items or trim branches that may be blocking sunlight to your solar unit. Trace the path of the sun in the sky to determine if an object is casting a shadow over your solar photovoltaic panels.

  • The panels should be oriented to the south if at all possible. The second best choice is to face the panels to the west or east, but you will have to use more panels in order to get the same amount of energy. Never face the panels to the north.

  • Be sure to get any necessary building permits before installing the panels. Check with your local building or zoning department to find out what the requirements are in your community. If you do not get the permits before the installation or do not complete the installation according to local building codes, you may be forced to tear out all your hard work and begin again.

  • The panels should be tilted to receive the maximum amount of sun.

  • Solar Panel mounts are used to install photovoltaic solar panels. These mounts come in three main types: pole mounts, roof-ground mounts, and flush mounts. Using these mounts, you can install your solar panel onto an RV, on top of or against the side of a pole, on your roof, or even install them as a free-standing unit. Mounts will secure your panels while providing the flexibility of adjustable tilt inclination.

  • Using solar panels to generate your own electricity can reduce your electricity bill to up to 40%. Not only will you be saving electricity, but you will be saving money as well. The Federal Governmentís Solar Credit Scheme and Renewable Energy Certificates provide some great rebates, ensuring that your system is more affordable than ever.

To help reduce the impact of pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, produce clean electricity by using solar panel in your homes.
