Types of Solar Power

home solar systemThere are two common types of solar power for home use:¬† 1) Photovoltaic (PV) and 2) Passive solar or solar thermal. Photovoltaic (PV) converts the sun’s energy into DC electricity, which runs through an inverter to produce¬† AC electricity for your home. Passive solar can be used to directly heat either air or water from the heat of the sun, and is often used to heat water for swimming pools or for water heaters.

Future posts will discuss each of these types of solar power in great deal, along with other related home solar energy topics.
