Energía solar

Huella de carbono

Our carbon footprint is the amount of carbon emissions (pollutants) we generate through our use of fossil fuels. Using solar power or other renewable energyA renewal energy resource is an energy resource that is regenerative or virtually inexhaustible. Typical examples are solar, wind, geothermal, and water. Renewable energy reduces our carbon footprint,… More reduces our carbon footprint.

Corriente continua (DC)

Direct current is a type of electricity transmission and distribution by which electricity flows in one direction through the conductor, usually relatively low voltage and high current. This is the type of current created by your solar panels. To be used for homes, DC must be converted to alternating current (AC)Alternating current is a type of electrical current, the direction of which is reversed at regular intervals or cycles. In… Más using an inverterAn Inversor is a device that converts direct current (DC) electricity to alternating current (AC) electricity. This converts power from… Más.

Corriente alterna (AC)

La corriente alterna es un tipo de corriente eléctrica, cuya dirección se invierte a intervalos o ciclos regulares. En los Estados Unidos, el estándar es de 120 reversiones o 60 ciclos por segundo. Las redes de transmisión de electricidad utilizan CA porque el voltaje se puede controlar con relativa facilidad. Este es el tipo de corriente que utilizan viviendas y edificios.

Fotovoltaica (FV)

The process by which sunlight is converted into energy. The sun emits photons (light), which generates electricity when they strike a photovoltaic cell. A photovoltaic module is another term for a solar panelA solar panel (often used interchangeably with PV module) is a panel designed to absorb the sun’s rays as a… Más.
