Solar Power

Using the sun in the desert to generate solar power

Almost all of us are familiar with solar power energy generating systems. Springing up all over the place these days, these systems generate electricity from the sun’s rays. They absorb the sunlight and convert it into usable energy, which is then transmitted to millions of households in the nearby regions. Consider this astounding fact. The sun sends over 42 trillion kilocalories of energy to Earth. Converting 100% of this energy into electricity would create enough power for the earth for a whole year. And this can be achieved in just one hour. So imagine the amount of power we would be able to generate from solar power on a daily […]

Understanding the clean power of solar energy

Sun is the ultimate source of life fostering energy. Other forms of energies may be considered a transformed version of solar energy. The energy trapped inside fossil fuels are also a form of changed solar energy but it causes pollution by emitting carbon dioxide. Solar energy produced by solar panels and photovoltaic cells are considered to be the cleanest form of energy that we can use. It is true that solar energy is cleaner than fossil fuels as it does not create as much pollution as them.
