Unlimited Power From Solar Energy

Feb 17, 2008
The most powerful form of renewable energy on earth is solar energy. So what is solar energy exactly? It is the energy that can be harnessed from the heat that's found in the suns rays. The sun produces so much energy, that if harnessed, it would only take one minute to have enough to provide the earth with sufficient energy to last at least 12 months!

What is solar power? The sun's energy is transformed into electricity. Once it is in a usable form it is referred to as solar power. There are lots of products on the market today that utilize solar power to function instead of using other commons forms of energy such as gas and electricity.

The sun's solar energy can be used with solar panels to generate electricity, or it can be used with thermal panels that will convert the power of the sun into heat

Solar panels contain silicone that soaks up the rays from the sun and then divides the electrons from the atoms. Electrons then enter through the silicone and become DC electricity. A converter is used to change that electricity into the same kind of 120 volt electricity that we use.

The use of home solar power can meet many of your energy needs. It can both heat and cool your home and also operate many appliances. Solar power can also provide lighting, hot water and even heat your pool among other things.

Many types of residential solar power kits can be purchased to make your home more energy efficient. The kit you need will depend a lot on the area in which your home is located and the amount of solar energy you will require to produce enough power for your home.

More information can be fround from the American Solar Energy Association (ASEA) which was founded in 1954. It is a nonprofit organization targeted toward increasing the usage of solar energy and has over 10,000 members who are working together to create a sustainable economy through cleaner, natural energy.

Chapters of the ASES can be found across the U.S. The Solar Energy Association can provide information on the ways you can use solar energy. They provide workshops and newsletters to keep the public updated on current solar power issues.

With the never ending rise in the costs of conventional energy and the damage these energies are doing to our environment, the use of solar energy is becoming more widespread and more and more popular.
