What is Photovoltaic Energy?
Photovoltaic energy is a clean, renewable source of energy. This particular type of energy uses solar radiation to produce electricity. The way that photovoltaic energy is created and absorbed is through the photoelectric effect. The photoelectric effect allows for certain materials to absorb photons and release electrons, which in return creates an electric current.
The Positives of Solar Energy
There are so many positives that come from photovoltaic energy. The first positive is the lack of emissions that are released into the atmosphere. There are no emissions released, allowing for a clean source of energy. With this, this clean source of energy comes straight from our earth’s power source, the sun. What this means is that as long as the sun is shining high in the sky, your home is being powered by renewable energy. The solar power that stems from photovoltaic energy has the power to save you money on your monthly electric bill. Customers on average save 20% on their monthly electric bill. What this means is that you are optimizing the sun’s power without harming the earth, all while putting more money in your pocket.
