Solar panels can reliably generate electricity for decades without emitting any pollutants and save you money in the process. Solar electric or photovoltaic panels transform the sun’s energy directly into electricity. The energy they generate can be used to seamlessly power your home or business, or be sent back into the grid for purchase by your utility provider. One of the best aspects of solar panel technology is that it converts sunlight, an unlimited source of energy, into electricity.
Traditional hot water heaters burn natural gas/propane or use electricity from the main power grid to heat water for the home. Solar hot water heaters collect their energy from the sun, and use that energy to heat water for use in the home or commercial building.
All attic ventilators, powered or solar vent out the hot air built up within the attic, but a solar unit offers additional benefits not possible with a powered product. Because a Broan Solar PAV turns on at dawn, it goes to work immediately, first to eliminate the moisture that has built up from the cool overnight air, and second, to prevent heat build up before it has a chance to build up to the point of convection.
The Power-Save System reduces the amount of power drawn from the utility by storing electricity otherwise lost from the motors in your home. The unit supplies this stored electricity back to your appliances, decreasing demand from the utility. Decreasing demand means less usage and lower electric bills!
