About Solar Power
As its name implies, solar power is energy that has been harnessed from the sun to generate electricity. The sun generates such immense quantities of heat that even though only a fraction of it reaches Earth, if properly contained it would be enough to provide substantial amounts of energy.
Since the 1860s, scientists have been progressively developing methods of safely channelling this freely available and renewable energy source into domestic applications.
In the 21st century, this clean green energy is used for hot water and electricity, is also increasingly used to power battery chargers, calculators, outdoor lights, air conditioning, cars, and satellites.
Most commonly, solar power works by converting solar radiation to electricity using the photovoltaic (PV) system.
Solar hot water uses energy from the sun to heat your water and is separate to solar electricity.
Put simply, this process happens when photons (energy components of sunbeams) are absorbed by a solar cell, converted to electrons, and then become part of an electrical current.
