Solar energy technology has come a long way in recent years, and there are exciting new trends that are changing the game for both residential and commercial users. As a leading provider of solar energy solutions, True Solar tries to stay ahead of the curve and make our customers aware of the latest and greatest in solar technology. Here are some of the top trends in solar energy that you need to know about:
- Energy Storage
One of the biggest challenges with solar energy has always been the issue of storage. During the day, solar panels generate electricity, but what happens when the sun goes down? Energy storage systems allow you to store excess energy generated during the day and use it when you need it most, making solar energy an even more reliable and cost-effective source of power.
- Smart Homes
With the rise of smart home technology, it’s no surprise that solar energy is getting in on the action. Smart solar panels can be programmed to adjust their angle and orientation to maximize energy generation throughout the day, while smart energy management systems allow you to monitor your energy usage and make adjustments in real-time.
- Thin Film Solar
Traditional solar panels are bulky and heavy, making them difficult to install and limiting their applications. Thin film solar technology, on the other hand, is lightweight and flexible, making it ideal for a wide range of uses. From curved surfaces to portable devices, thin film solar is revolutionizing the way we think about solar energy.
- Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)
BIPV technology allows solar panels to be integrated directly into building materials like roofs, walls, and windows. This not only saves space and improves aesthetics, but it also eliminates the need for separate solar panel installation, making solar energy even more accessible and cost-effective.
