Solar panels : Electricity generation and beyond…

I recently read an interesting article on benefits of solar panel other than electricity generation . I really want to share here on earth day!.

Solar panel installation on roof for electricity production is known and popular. PV cells installed on insulated roof can reduce heat gain in summer and hence reduce air condition load. And other interesting usage of solar panels could be to use as a patio shade and awning. As a matter of fact shading of awning can save electricity up to 65% on south facing windows and up to 77% on west facing windows and reduction 8 F-15F (5C-8C) in internal temperature.

Mean solar panels can not only used for clean electricity generation but also for saving energy and utility bills $$$
