Do you look around at the uncertainty of the world and wonder how you’re going to make it if all hell breaks loose? Modern conveniences that make living simpler—stoves, refrigerators, and computers to name a few—all need electricity to operate. But who says you have to buy that electricity? Why not harness the energy of the sun through the use of solar electrical panels and a solar electrical system to power your home?
Solar electrical panels are large, flat and generally the about the size of an average door. They are constructed of individual solar energy collectors called solar cells, or more commonly, photovoltaic cells. These cells are covered with a thin protective layer of glass. They are usually black or blue in color and are designed to generate electricity by capturing sunlight.
