A common misconception about solar panels is that they will not work on cloudy days. Although solar panel energy output will be less on cloudy days than sunny days, the panels will still provide electricity. As solar panels grow more efficient, it becomes easier to capture the sun’s energy even when it is cloudy outside.
A light cleaning and some checking for wear are the only maintenance that solar panels need. They typically don’t have moving parts, unless built on tracking mounts, and are built to withstand the elements for years at a time.
Are you a homeowner? Are you intent on selling your home? If you are, have you ever asked yourself if it’s worth installing solar panels? While you might be environmentally conscious, the financial burden of installation may seem like a bit too much to stomach.
Solar power can cost less than you thought. Are you installing solar panels and equipment? There’s tax relief for that! The ENERGY STAR program allows individuals and businesses to get a tax credit for solar projects. CAM Solar wants you to use this program for your commercial and residential solar panel projects.
