How We Use Solar Energy
As technology is further evolving, there are more ways we can use solar energy.
Solar power is the conversion of the energy from the sun into electricity. We can harness the sun's energy by using solar collectors. These collectors enable us to use the heat from the sun to warm our homes, heat water, power lights, and even power vehicles. They can be installed anywhere the sun shines like on roofs for maximum sun exposure.
Did you know that our satellites in space use solar power as their main energy source?
Today, with the rapid growth of the solar industry, utility companies have built more solar fields or solar farms that have thousands of solar collectors. These solar farms are referred to as photovoltaic power stations. These solar farms are used to convert the solar energy collected into electricity.
