Even here in Buffalo, NY, the power of the sun can be put to work for your home. Solar energy is an infinitely renewable energy source that can be used to generate electricity. It’s a win-win for homeowners; you can reduce your energy bills and reduce your dependence on fossil fuels, taking a stand for a cleaner environment.
If you install a residential solar energy system on your house, the system will use solar modules made of photovoltaic (PV) cells to capture the sun’s energy. The system then converts that energy into electricity that can be used to power anything and everything in your home, including appliances, lights, heating and cooling systems, and more.
