Solar PV is the technical name for Solar Power. The term “photovoltaic” comes from the Greek φῶς (phōs) meaning “light”, and from “volt”, the unit of electro-motive force, the volt, which in turn comes from the last name of the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta, inventor of the electrochemical cell battery.
Whether you are considering Solar Power because you want to reduce electricity costs or improve your lifestyle. Maybe you just want to support renewable energy and the environment, the argument for solar power is very compelling. It’s true, solar can make you money, by saving you money. However you do need to make the right choices about product, supplier, long-term support and if in fact it will work with your energy use patterns.
