Benchmark Electrical Solutions: Commercial Solar Energy
What Is Solar Energy?
Solar energy is energy from the sun that is converted into energy that we can harness for our electrical needs.
How Does Solar Energy in the Form of Solar Panels Work?
Solar panels are made from silicon. When the sun's rays hit the silicon in solar panels, electrons are knocked free. This begins a reaction which allows the panels to collect the electrical current that is generated. This electrical current is direct current, which is then converted to alternating current, which is the form of electricity we use in the United States.
How Does Solar Energy Compare to Other Energy Sources?
Solar energy, in general, is much more environmentally friendly than other types of energy sources. For example, hydroelectricity, which uses water to generate energy, usually requires the construction of a dam, which can drastically alter the surrounding habitats and landforms surrounding it.
The Right Choice: Solar Energy
Here in Colorado, we experience sunshine over 300 days a year. In a world full of rising energy costs and other market fluctuations, having control over your energy source and budgeting for energy costs just makes sense.
