What is Solar Energy ?
Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available,Australia has the highest average solar radiation per square meter of any continent in the world. More than 2 million Australian households now have solar hot water systems or solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on their rooftop. Supersolarenergy can harness this energy for a variety of uses, including generating electricity, providing light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial use.
Why Solar Energy is important ?
Solar power is one of the sustainable sources of clean energy. It is also one of the most tested and effective sources of non-fossil fuel-based sources of energy. Solar energy is also the most practical and pragmatic infrastructure system in place for both commercial and Residential use. When fossil fuels are burned to generate electricity, they release harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Scientists believe that continuing to depend on fossil fuels is going to cause serious environmental problems in the future. Another important use for solar energy is in satellites. Many satellites are engineered with photovoltaic panels, which capture sunlight and convert it into electricity that is used to power the satellite.
- Reduces Air Pollution
- Reduces the burden on water systems
- Reduces the need for fossil fuels.
- Help fight climate change.
How Do Photovoltaic Work?
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) cells generate electricity by absorbing sunlight and using that light energy to create an electrical current. There are many PV cells within a single solar panel, and the current created by all of the cells together adds up to enough electricity to help power your school, home and businesses.
Similar to the cells in a battery, cells in a solar panel are designed to generate electricity; except a battery’s cells make electricity from chemicals and a solar panel’s cells generate electricity by capturing sunlight instead.
