Solar panels-what are they

It is a process whereby we can make energy from the heat given out by the sun.This energy made by the sun is called solar energy.The first thought that comes to ones' mind is how it is done.WE can make and generate solar energy or solar power by putting panels on roofs.THESE are special type of panels called solar panels.Solar energy can be used to generate electricity and heat water/depending on the type of ones' need these come in two types solar photovoltaic and solar thermal.Solar photovoltaic help to generate electricity whereas solar thermal helps to heat water.EVEN if you do not live in a sunny place area do not worry just daylight is enough to generate some electric power even on gloomy days,this is very important for areas where the weather is dull and cloudy.
Photovoltaic roof tiles help to convert the sunlight into electric power,this can be utilized by you to generate electricity to power your house in the daytime.The unutilized energy is sent back to the grid of solar panels.If one uses more than generation by the panels the extra energy comes from the grid.
IN WINTER solar energy is less so there is more power consumption from the grid.The best bet in winter is to run the appliances when there is still light in the sky,this will help you to get maximum savings.
