How Far Can Solar Power Be Transmitted?

Historically, our electricity came from coal and natural gas plants fueled by burning combustible materials. 

With locally generated solar energy, we no longer have to worry about transporting fuels over long distances.

But what if you live in an area that doesn’t receive much sunlight? Or what if there are not enough solar panels to provide all your home energy needs? Solar power helps ensure you have plenty of clean, renewable energy no matter where you live.

In most cases, using solar energy means connecting to a public grid, which comes with its benefits and challenges. When you connect to a utility grid, you gain access to affordable electricity.

However, you also help support it through consumption—at any rate, you still need a reliable fuel source to generate throughout the day.

Solar panels contain multiple layers that allow specific wavelengths of light to pass through while blocking others. 

This selective shading enables us to use solar energy to heat water, power turbines, and even create hydrogen fuel.

When you think about it, sunlight is one of the most abundant energy sources. Our world runs off electricity, so we need some way to transmit this energy from where it is generated (like solar farms) to where it is required.

While technology has come a long way in generating and storing electric charge, getting enough distance between generation and demand to make solar, a viable option remains an issue.

So, how can solar panels work for your home? 

The solar panel installation depends on the home, location, and weather. If you cannot have solar panels on your roof, you can place them on the ground. These can be from 50 to 500 ft from your home, but the cost can increase to provide the proper technology that prevents energy loss from a distance.
