I start my career in renewable energy in 2007 as an engineer. I was installing small scale solar plants for private homes. A few years later, my team and I managed to receive orders for big commercial objects. Relying on a technical background in electronics, I have involved in the design and installation of full-cycle solar energy systems since 2014. My profiles: https://www.facebook.com/erik.shafer.5876

The storage of solar energy in panels is very similar to traditional agriculture. In both cases, we can observe a peculiar harvest. The only difference is that the solar panel accumulates photons and converts it into an electric charge. Naturally, over time, all components degrade. And the amount of yield decreases. Let’s look at all […]
