Some interesting facts you might not know about solar power includes that even on cloudy days and overcast days you typically receive at least two hours of sunlight per day. Cloudy locations and building sites can receive about 2.5 hours of sunlight per day, while sunny building sites and locations can receive an average of about five hours of sunlight a day. Solar power can work even on overcast and cloudy days, and while sunny days may produce more solar energy, the solar will still continue to draw energy even when the weather is cloudy and overcast. Indirect, or diffused sunlight will still help you to power your solar log cabin. Batteries with your solar kit can help to make the solar systems a 24/7/365 power source. When solar power is combined with an integrated battery, the solar panels can provide electricity even when it’s dark outside, and help provide for a self-sufficient,off-grid life. The sun gives off thousands of watts of natural energy each day. Solar panels and solar power is a reliable energy source. Just think if the main electrical grids fail, that hundreds or thousands of homes can be left without power, but if you have solar you needn't worry.
