Benefits of Solar Power


Energy obtained from the sun is solar energy this type of energy has been used over the time since the ancient times it was used to dry or cook and simply maintaining the heat.Nowadays the solar energy power is used to generate  heat  in remote areas where other sources of energy  cannot be able to produce the  energy.

The solar energy is also used in space and it is also used  in other means of  mechanism  since it is cheaper compared to coal and oil. Solar energy can also be used to cook food since it can be able to trap the light energy from the sun and convert it into heat energy that is used to cook.

There can be a lot of uses  for the solar energy these are generating  electricity ,solar energy  can generate electricity by  storing the energy in solar cells or even the use of heat engines. The solar cells  convert the solar radiation to  direct electricity while  the heat engine converts the  heat energy to  the mechanical energy that generates the  electricity.

Energy from the sun  reaches the earth’s atmosphere as a  solar radiation which reaches  to us as light energy the light energy is consumed by the plants and converted into chemical energy at the end of the day we end up consuming this type of energy through various means you can  consume the energy as  food or by burning  the plants as wood to generate heat.

There  are many means of technology that have been used to  utilize and optimize the electricity  this include photovoltaic and the concentrated solar power  the concentrated solar power converts light energy by having to use lenses that  focus huge spaces of light into a small team while  the photovoltaic use  photoelectric effect on generating electricity. Get some início facts here.

Solar cookers are cheap means of cooking unlike the use of other fuels like gas and  coal this method of cooking uses solar energy to generate heat which is then used to heat the food  there are different ways to make the solar cookers this depends on the type of fluids you want to be used they  can be either liquid or air.

The other device that uses the solar energy is the solar cell the solar cell converts as discussed at, and for the light energy to electric energy; this type of energy is used in areas that are remote and can’t afford the  normal type of energy, this type of energy is also used in items that don’t require a lot of energy but need the energy to sustain them like  calculators  and wrist watches.
