Every time you see your electricity bill you would smirk bitterly about all the money you have to shed on it. There are so many free or affordable sources of energy that you can use to harness electricity. The natural sources of energy like sunlight are abundant and no one owns them so one can use them as much as he likes.

These forms of energy are available in limitless amount and we hardly bother to use it for our benefit. We pay huge sums of money every month on electricity bills and it is very easy to save all that money by switching on to solar energy and investing in systems that would help you save money in the long run. The simplest way of tapping solar energy and using it to produce electricity is through solar energy panels which are also called as photovoltaic panels.

Solar panel installations are becoming popular with time and are helping us to protect our environment. Once these panels are installed, they require hardly any maintenance and are placed on the roof top where they receive maximum solar energy and are unobtrusive. They stand there on the roof top and collect sunlight to produce electricity and save a good amount of money. They also add value to house and help you cut down on your power bills.

In order to choose the solar panel installation to produce renewable source of energy in your house you would probably want to install a solar panel with as much efficiency as possible. Many people prefer to keep it on the roof top whereas some like to place it in their backyard or garden where they get more sunlight and for a longer period of time during the day. When you have to decide about the area for solar panel installation then you should ensure that good amount of sunlight is available around it or else you may face difficulty with power generation.

Another thing that may concern you is how to mount your solar panels. You can choose a mounting system or can choose to flush it on the roof or ground. The choice entirely depends on your budget. Also you may want to tilt your solar panel to receive enough sunlight. It is beneficial to install the panels when you are constructing or redoing the roof. This will help in reducing any leaks and can flash in solar mount.

The basic solar panel installation involve: installing mounts, putting up solar panels, connecting then into conduit into your power inverter. While installing the mounts make sure that they are in the same line. The roof mounts have to be attached to the rafters. Then secure the rails to mounts and use these rails to install panels.

If you are installing the solar panel outside your house then the inverter will have to be installed partially within. The solar system is connected to the inverter. The inverter converts the AC power into DC that the solar system has generated. It is usually connected to the utility company to synchronize the electricity.
