How to Maximize Your Solar Panels
Several things can be done to maximize your solar panels. You can start with small changes or go big. But either way, you can expect to reap more benefits from your solar PV system.
In this post, JMB Renewables lists some of the ways that you can make the most of your solar panels.
If you are shopping for new appliances, consider those with rechargeable batteries so that you can charge them during the day and then use them on battery power at night or whenever you need to use them. Additionally, make sure to check the ENERGY STAR® ratings of the appliances, and choose options that use as little energy as possible.
Energy Storage Devices
A battery system can save many hours of electricity time for days when the sun isn't shining. This is a great way to prepare for different kinds of weather and ensure that you have power at all times, further reducing your dependence on energy from the grid.
Smart home technologies have become more common in the last few years. Apart from the convenience (i.e. being able to control the lights using your smartphone, automatically adjust your thermostat, etc.), a smart home device can help you save energy at home too. Paired with a solar PV system, smart home tech might just be able to significantly drive down your energy bills.
Solar Panel Maintenance
Solar panels are exposed to a variety of elements, so it’s only natural that they are going to get dirty over time. Dirt, mold, and debris could accumulate on your panels, and these things can eventually reduce the efficiency of your solar system. That said, make sure that proper maintenance is done on your solar panels. Have them cleaned by a professional at least twice a year.
