What is Solar Energy?

Solar energy is the process of converting sunlight into electricity. This is either done using photovoltaics (PV) to convert light into electric current, or it done indirectly using concentrated solar power. Concentrated solar power is when lenses and mirrors are used to form sunlight into a small beam. Many prefer this method since it does not involve the burning of fossil fuels. You can put this energy to many uses from heating water and living spaces to generating electrical energy.

Benefits of Solar Energy?

  • Renewable Energy Source– If you decide to move out to a rural area, if the sun is shining, you can use solar energy. You cannot run out of solar energy.
  • Reduces Electric Bills– You’ll notice your bill drop once you start using solar energy.
  • Diverse Applications- Solar energy doesn’t just have one use. There are many uses such as distilling water in regions with limited clean water, heating spaces and water and even powering satellites in space.
  • Low Maintenance Costs– Solar systems don’t usually require a lot of maintenance. Since there are no moving parts, it’s very rare they get damaged. Cleaning them two times a year is usually all that is needed.
  • Technology Development– Solar energy is not slowing down. Constant improvements are being made – the industry is advancing tremendously.

The sun is the most plentiful source of energy opposed to the other options. This could be the most reliable source of energy for the future. Solar panels are cheaper now than before so it’s now easier for consumers and businesses alike to benefit.
