What Can Solar Panels Power?

What Can Solar Panels PowerSolar power is no longer a fringe technology used by a few enthusiasts living off the grid. Steady advancement in photovoltaic design and manufacturing has made it both more affordable and more prevalent, not only in high sunshine states like California and Texas but also in regions all across the nation. In short, solar has gone mainstream. In fact, chances are you have at least one device that’s solar-powered already in your household, be it a calculator, radio, or toy. But that’s only scratching the surface of what’s possible with solar power. So, what can solar panels power? Here’s just a sampling of some of the most common items:

Your Home

When most people think of solar panels, they’re envisioning the large units installed on rooftops. These are the photovoltaic cells that collect energy for a solar power system, either commercial or residential. With enough panels, a residential system has the potential to generate all the electricity a typical home uses daily. But if you want a source of power during times when the sun isn’t shining, your power system will require a solar battery.

Water Heaters

As mentioned earlier, solar panels can be incorporated into individual appliances. In recent decades, one of the most popular of these is a water heater. Whether for indoor plumbing or an outdoor pool, solar-powered heating units are easily installed and can pay for themselves in five to ten years.

Outdoor Lighting

You’d be hard-pressed to find a solar product more ubiquitous than outdoor lighting. And with good reason. Solar-powered illumination needs no power cords or batteries that require regular replacing. From motion-activated spotlights to decorative path lanterns and even Christmas decorations, the list of uses gets longer every year. The solar panels on these devices can often be unobtrusively incorporated into the design, a plus for those who prefer a more traditional aesthetic.

Attic Fans

An overheated attic can make it harder for your HVAC unit to keep your home cool. Solar-powered attic fans can dramatically reduce the temperature by drawing in cooler, outdoor air and blowing out hot air. A hole does need to be cut through the roof for installation, so unless you’re a DIY expert, it’s a job best left for professionals.
