SOLAR ENERGY THAT POWERS YOUR HOME

Solar energy is a renewable energy resource powered by the sun. The energy produced by the sun captured by solar panels or PV (photovoltaic) cells. The solar panels collect the electricity by exciting electrons with photons of light which cause them to generate electricity. This “solar energy” can be used to power your home, appliances, and electronics.
