Interest in photovoltaics continues to be extremely high. Among all renewable energy sources, photovoltaic installations are the most popular in Poland. This state of affairs should come as no surprise to anyone, as one's own "mini power plant", is to a large extent to be independent of power grids for external power supply. What's more? The savings, of course, as well as the ever-widening investment opportunities the sector offers. Therefore, the game is worth the candle. However, before deciding to install photovoltaic panels, it is worth familiarising yourself with the most important issues.

Undoubtedly, the main advantage of a photovoltaic installation is independence. With energy prices on the rise, access to a free resource is an extremely tempting proposition. The investment incurred in photovoltaic panels pays for itself relatively quickly. And, at first glance, basically anyone can afford to install photovoltaic panels, given the many programmes that fund investment. However, what is worth bearing in mind when deciding on this way of generating energy?

Photovoltaic installation - how do PV panels work?

Photovoltaic installations are an increasingly popular energy generation solution. The system of operation of photovoltaic panels is very simple, because in general terms - they turn solar energy into electricity. Obviously, the larger the structure, the more energy will be extracted. Therefore, the sun's rays that fall on the installations are absorbed by silicon semiconductors, which knock electrons out of their position, thus forcing them to move.

An effective photovoltaic installation is one that is properly installed and the absorption of the sun's rays is at the highest possible level.

The effectiveness of photovoltaics in Poland is still often questioned. Many people believe that since our country has a subtropical climate, the level of insolation is too low for the installation to work properly. Of course, these kinds of statements are not true. In fact, it is already one of the legendary myths that should not be taken seriously.

Thus, the profitability of photovoltaics is mainly determined by the power of the installation. When it has been properly selected for the amount of electricity produced and is sufficient for the household's needs, then you can be sure that the investment will pay for itself relatively quickly.

Do photovoltaic panels only work on sunny days?

This is one of the questions very often asked, mainly by people who want to switch to green energy sources. The answer is no, because modern photovoltaic panels work perfectly from dawn to dusk. On cloudy days, on the other hand, they use rays that are scattered, which makes them work basically regardless of the prevailing weather conditions. In extremely adverse weather conditions, the panels will simply produce less energy.

Durability and easy maintenance - advantages of photovoltaic installations

Despite the fact that the need to keep photovoltaic installations in perfect condition could, in principle, be considered a disadvantage, their maintenance is far less demanding than you might think. Why is this so? For a simple reason, namely, photovoltaic panels basically have no moving parts. Thus, they are not prone to damage, and the ease of installation as well as dismantling are just additional benefits. So what are the biggest advantages of photovoltaic installations?

- durability and robustness of the photovoltaic installation,

- easy assembly and disassembly of photovoltaic panels,

- an inexhaustible source of energy ,

- green energy that does not pollute the environment,

- simple and quick maintenance,

- decades of generating savings,

- the possibility of cooperation with the power grid.

In addition to the many benefits of using photovoltaic panels on a daily basis, this is also the way forward for green energy generation. In the face of ever-increasing electricity prices, photovoltaic installations will definitely be an increasingly common sight on Poles' homes.

Green energy generation - bet on photovoltaic installations

Renewable energy sources are undoubtedly the future and the way the world should go. They are always available in the same or similar quantities, which gives them a huge advantage over exhaustible resources. Already today, photovoltaics are an ideal alternative to the daily drawing of electricity from the grid, where most of the energy produced is the result of burning coal (a non-renewable resource).

During daily operation, the photovoltaic panels make no noise and do not emit any harmful substances into the atmosphere. Depending on the size of the installation, it may take up little or more space, but the panels can also be mounted on the roof, which is a huge advantage. As part of the above, it should also be emphasised that photovoltaics do not pollute the environment, unlike various types of fossil fuel.

Photovoltaics are definitely a very beneficial solution. For both environmental and economic reasons. Considering the combination of savings and environmental protection, it can be said that this is exactly the relationship that should distinguish modern renewable energy installations.
