What Is Solar Energy?

Solar energy is derived from the Sun's radiation and acts like an excellent source of energy since fossil fuels get depleted, very expensive and as consumers prefer renewable energy.

Each ray of light that we can convert into electricity is another step in decreasing the pollution of fossil fuels. Furthermore by installing solar panels on homes, we are investing in the clean energy economy and generating millions of jobs without the need to outsource.

What is Photovoltaic (or Solar Panels)?

Photovoltaic or Solar Panels make it possible for us to directly convert sun light into a source of electricity. PV arrays consist of solar cells that can come in many different shapes and sizes. PV array on a home producing electricity is likely to be made of traditional crystalline silicon. Common solar cells have an efficiency of around 15%, although there are systems that are up to 21% efficient.

Active & passive solar heating

Passive solar is often used to heat an office building. By constructing a building with large south-facing glass windows, the Sun's energy can be stored during the day. Certain thermal storage components will absorb the heat and steadily dissipate it throughout the evening keeping the building heated.

Active solar heating is also a solution to make use of the Sun's radiant energy. A good example of active solar is solar water heaters. Many systems can be found on top of many buildings around the world. Water gradually passes through a flat plate collector facing the Sun and as the water is heated, it moves into a storage container to be used in the future. In a number of Mediterranean areas, 30-40% of homes have solar water heaters, emphasizing the usefulness of such a system to meet basic family hot water needs.
