Solar energy is one of the most abundant natural resources. Most of the countries are switching to the use of solar energy as it doesn’t degrade the environment. Apart from this, there is not fear of the resource being finished. With the rise in use of solar energy for every single process, the Government of different countries has taken up several projects in utilizing the solar energy to a maximum extent. These days solar panels, solar water heating system, solar cookers, solar cells, solar furnace etc. are common in all the countries. The Solar power is a topic of discussion as the government takes up several actions to harness maximum solar energy.
In most of the solar water heating photo-voltaic solar panels are used to charge a battery during the day. This was used to light up six CFL bulbs in our house at night over the last 12 years. These days most of the solar harnessing companies have switched to LED bulbs on this and it gives even better service. The drawback is that the battery which needs replacement every three years and the cost is very high. This is called an 'Off-grid' system which operates on 12 volts direct current. These days solar energy water heater is very common . With the help of solarenergy you will be able to save a good amount on the utility bill payements. Hence, tthis will be a wonderful way to fit in your financial budget and also use the solar energy in a wonderful and great way.
Recently 'Grid-tie' system was installed to save the electricity bill which uses up 200 odd units per month. For this 8 panel system was used which feeds about 300 Volts direct current on a sunny day to the inverter which converts it to 230 Volts alternating current and feeds it to the mains
After the use of the above system , the electricity bill drastically reduces and its less than Rs.200/ per month. But you need to invest during installation. The installation can be done by the dean by Solartherm, near the Castle street level crossing, Borella, Colombo, , in one day using Solar panels from Sun Power Canada and Inverter from Fronius of Austria.
The installation of the two meters for input and output of current was done by the Ceylon Electricity Board which supplies the mains current. The Solar system is developing these days as many of the modern techniques and technologies are used for harnessing the solar energy. Thus the use of the solar energy has reduced the electricity bill drastically.
So it is always advisable for everyone to use the solar energy for every small work. This will save our nature and keep the environment clean and the energy crisis will drastically reduce. Hence, it is much environmental friendly option which is also financial friendly to the users of this system.
