Solar Electricity: What it is & Why it matterS
Solar power works by transforming the sun’s energy into electricity. For our purposes, the sun generates two types of energy: electricity and heat. Solar panels, which range in size from residential rooftops to acre-sized solar farms, are used to generate both.
In an hour and a half, the amount of sunshine that touches the earth’s surface is enough to power the entire world’s energy usage for a year. Photovoltaic (PV) panels or mirrors that concentrate solar radiation are used in solar technologies to convert sunlight into electrical energy. This energy can be converted into electricity or stored in batteries or thermal storage.
At Everlight Solar, we use solar power to simplify your life, save you money, and clean up the environment.
