The number of people choosing solar energy over grid power is increasing all over the world. On one hand, better and more innovative technologies are coming up making solar power more reliable and cost-effective than ever. And on the other hand, there is a growing frustration due to the rising costs of electricity bills.

Homeowners have to bear expenses of not just the basic electricity bills, but also the additional charges and surge pricing the provider levies. Yet, a large number of people still prefer to go the traditional way and want to continue using grid power. If you have not yet made a switch from grid power to solar power, read on to know why it is the right time to enter the era of new technology.

We will specifically focus on the benefits of solar power for the residents of Maitland to help them make the right choice.

What is solar energy?

Solar energy is the form of electricity produced by the sun rays. It is in the form of photovoltaic energy that is produced by the sun’s light and solar thermal energy that is produced by the warmth of the sun rays.

The energy, that is generated, can be used to supply electricity to homes and power up electrical appliances. It is a renewable and inexhaustible source of energy as it comes from the Sun.

The solar power can be harnessed using solar panels and mirrors.

A solar power system is equipped with photovoltaic solar cells that can convert sun rays falling onto the solar panels and mirrors into electricity by producing a photovoltaic effect. It involves the absorption of light particles called photons by certain materials followed by the liberation of electrons to generate electric current.

Solar power systems also have solar thermal collectors that use the mirrors and panels to absorb the sun’s heat and concentrate it by transferring it to a fluid form. The fluid form allows the energy to be easily conducted through pipes to be supplied to residents and commercial premises.

How is solar power obtained?

The sun provides solar power in 2 different ways:
  1. The heat of the sun rays is trapped by the panels. The panels help to focus the sun rays on a receiver containing a fluid that heats up and reaches a temperature of nearly 1000°C. The heat later transforms the fluid into steam that moves a turbine to finally produce electricity.
  1. Light from sun rays is converted into electric power when they fall on to the photovoltaic solar panels. These panels consist of multiple groups of cells called solar cells that can convert light energy in the form of photons into electric energy in the form of electrons.

This just shows how solar energy provides a perfect method to supply power to your home with its technologically advanced design. All it needs is the heat and light of the sun, which is available to all at no cost.

And this is what makes solar energy a reliable and cost-efficient option for those looking to save on their electricity bills.

But will solar energy be equally good for all? Can we consider it a good alternative to grid power for people across the world? What about those who stay in places whether sunlight is poor?

Is solar energy suitable for the homeowners of Maitland?

Maitland is 13 meters above the sea level. It has a mild and warm climate that is not too hot nor too cold. The temperate climate of Maitland makes it a good place to harness solar energy.

The average annual temperature of Maitland is 17.9°C, with January being the hottest month of the year. The average temperature in January is about 23.3°C. The lowest average temperature is recorded in July. However, even in this coldest month, the average temperature is nearly 11.6°C.

According to solar energy experts, these weather conditions are suitable for the generation of electricity using solar panels. The energy production would be obviously maximum during January and other summer months. And in colder months too, the solar panels would be able to produce sufficient energy to power up your home.
