An Introduction to Solar Power

The sun is an extremely large star that emits power through its rays. Did you know that this energy can be harnessed and used to power your business on a daily basis? At HAYNES Energy Solutions in Asheville, North Carolina, we recognize that solar power is one of the most popular and talked-about energy sources in the world today because:

  • In just one hour, enough energy is released from the sun to power the entire world for a year
  • Unlike natural gas, coal, and oil, solar power is completely renewable

We concentrate most of our solar power efforts on developing photovoltaic systems that convert the sun’s light into a usable form of electricity. Typically, this process occurs in a solar module.

Solar PowerSolar modules that create solar power consist of several layers of materials. When the light from the sun hits the cells in these modules, they produce an electric current. When this occurs, this energy is transferred to a semiconductor, where the electrons are then allowed to flow freely.

We believe that solar power is the future, especially since the demand for energy and its cost is rapidly increasing. This type of energy is extremely clean and allows businesses and homes to reduce their impact on the environment, while also receiving a significant return on their investment. We encourage you to further consider using solar power as your primary source of energy.
