Solar energy, an incredible source of heat and light and is used successfully to generate electric power. This power is actually the sunlight, and it carries protons with it that are positive elements and carries positive charge. This power is being used from ancient times for purpose of human welfare, and same thing is happing today as well. The only difference that we find today is technology, with passage of time we come across many innovations and these innovations help us in improving the ways of using solar power. Now we are using this energy on small and large platforms to reduce cost and improve production. House owners are also using it, for different purposes in different forms like solar water heaters, solar lights, solar cookers, solar inventors etc.
Advantages of solar power:
Solar power is a long lasting source to produce energy around the world. Using this power after converting it into any other form of energy is practical and useful for everyone on this planet as this power is not harmful for humans. Besides earth now this power is facilitating equipments working in space as well. Most of the satellites in space get power through solar energy and continue its works there without any hindrance or energy issue. Other major advantages of using solar power are as bellow.
Renewable source of energy:
Solar power or sunlight is a natural resource which is not going to end till end of human race. And as long as sun is proving light and heat to us, wind will continue to blow, rivers will keep on flowing, plants will continue supply of oxygen for humans and we all will live happily. We are using this energy for our purposes from ancient time and still there is vast availability of this power on earth and it is facilitating as well.
Environment friendly: energy that comes from sun is eco friendly and carries no bad rays with it. This energy is not creating green house effect on earth, as is created by humans themselves to pollute environment of this planet. If we use this source of energy to generate electricity, there are more chances to make environment cleaner than before. We can also control use of new-renewable resources in this way that we use to generate other energies. It also helps in climate changes that are taking place due to excessive use of other sources to get power.
Inexpensive and easy to get: solar energy is inexpensive and easy to get, as this is a natural power and we never use to pay for using natural resources like wind, water in oceans, light and heat of sun and oxygen that we get through plants. We directly store this energy to use it in future on solar panels which are very affordable and give work for years. Solar energy is not going to end soon, therefore we can use it as long as this planet exists.
Easy to store: solar panels are great innovation in world of solar power, as these are the mediums through which we can convert this energy into electricity and then we can use it at homes and industries. These panels are formed of cells that carry electrons in it, and when sunlight reaches on these panels it bring protons with it. Reaction between these two elements creates a stream of energy which is later on used as direct current to operate our equipments.
Cheap way to produce electricity: solar energy is now helping small business owners and households to generate electricity for themselves, at very cheap rates. Electricity that is produced with help of this energy is used by them only, and they can cut their expenses on utility bill easily. They can use it as cooker, water heater, light and to operate many other equipments at their houses or farms and small offices.
Advantages of solar energy is just not limited to mentioned above. There are other numerous uses for solar energy technology
