If you're trying to design your new house, think about putting in a bunch of big windows on the home's south side so that during the winter you can get a lot of sun. Make sure you have methods in place to keep excess heat out during the warmer summer months. For more help, consult a contractor who specializes in solar energy.
Minh Le, Director of the Solar Energy Technologies Office within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy at the Department of Energy, discusses …
Never walk on solar panels. They are fragile and can cost you a lot of money if you break them. If you have to walk on them, don't walk on the ends since these are the most fragile areas.
To gain more from solar panels for a business or home, get installations that have technologies that don't directly rely on our sun's schedule. New solar energy systems can store a great deal of energy so that you can make complete use of your system 24/7, 365 days a year. This is especially useful if you use most of your power at night.
