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 basis. Continue reading Using the sun in the desert to generate solar power
