Solar anything is very cool, and with the state of the world's oil supply, it's time to get on the bandwagon. Solar power for personal and household use will continue to be a primary use of the sun's energy.
More importantly, applications such as solar farms and using rooftop surfaces in large metropolitan areas for electricity production will make an important contribution to the world's electricity needs.
With increasing efficiency and increased demand, solar energy will likely play an increasingly larger role in the production of electricity in the future.
What is solar power?
Solar power is the conversion of the sun's energy into electricity. When the price of energy is soaring, solar power offers an increasingly attractive option for powering our world.
Mankind needs to find alternative, renewable sources of energy that don't damage the planet. And it needs to happen now.
Each of us can do our part by adopting solar energy as the best alternative source of energy available.
There two solar-powered "robots" or "rovers", Spirit and Opportunity, still roaming about Mars 3 years after they arrived, much to the surprise of the Nasa scientists who sent them there. May Spirit and Opportunity show us the way!
As solar innovations have accelerated in recent years, the technology has begun to show great promise. There are now available, cost-effective ways to convert one's home or business to solar energy power.
In addition, advancements in solar panel technology are now offering consumers products like solar powered backpacks to charge or power small portable electronic devices, such as cell phones and laptops.
Innovations in solar cell technology now even allow glass to absorb the suns energy and convert it into electricity.
Why solar power?
The advantages of solar power are many.
Here are the top 3 biggest advantages of solar power:
The suns energy is 100% renewable, unlike any other source of power, even wind.
The sun's energy creates no pollution of any kind, making it totally safe for the environment.
Energy from the sun is FREE!
There are numerous solar-powered products and gadgets widely available in today's market, for the home, transportation, recreation and more.
Global change, whether it's called global warming or global cooling, will continue to be an increasingly important topic, worldwide, for a long time to come.
Solar power is currently being used in everything from streetlights to electric cars. And, now that solar energy companies are really starting to be taken seriously, with solar trends on the rise across a broad spectrum of products, it’s not only safe to go with solar power, it’s the smart thing to do.
If you really want to make an investment which will benefit both you and the planet, now is the time to do it.
