The electromagnetic radiation travels to the earth in various wavelengths, most of which are invisible to the human eye like gamma or ultraviolet rays. The nuclear fusion in the sun produces solar energy. Nuclear fusion is a nuclear reaction in which atomic nuclei of low atomic number fuse to form a heavier nucleus with the release of energy. This type of energy is very sufficient and ‘clean’ for the earth because its only machine is the sun and the light that it provides and the heating of the surface of the earth or any object on it, such as a solar panel. Solar energy is constantly flowing, from the sun, through outer space and the solar system, and onto the earth.
I believe my community’s economy will continue to benefit now and in the future, if we take a serious approach to a solar transition. Photo (White 1) This region and community is like no other in the world. We have come together in amazing ways to accomplish huge goals. Global conservation is a rapidly expanding field, and has become an issue that can no longer be ignored. The Colorado Springs are is an ideal region to begin utilizing the full effect of solar energy, and I believe this region can play a leading role in powering our future.
History of Solar Energy Even though most people think solar energy is a recent invention, it has been around for centuries, even in ancient times. Efforts to design and construct devices for supplying renewable energy began 100 years before the height of the Industrial Revolution. Engineers and scientists worried about what would happen to the world’s nations after using up the fuel supply. Most of the environmental visionaries realized that the potential rewards of solar power outweighed the technical barriers. Solar pioneers developed techniques for capturing solar radiation and used it to produce steam to power the machines of the era.
Solar Power-The Energy of the Future Abstract: Solar energy, once thought impossible for use as a consumer power source, is steadily growing in its applications and affordability. Laboratories and government agencies are optimistic that solar power will soon be economically feasible for nations worldwide. Such uses as passive solar heating and cooling of homes, and the use of photovoltaic (solar electric) cells to run "big energy" appliances are currently out of reach for the everyday consumer. Others, such as the use of photovoltaic cells to power portable computers, lanterns and other items, are more and more becoming a solid investment for the general public. Companies that produce such items are reaching their audiences through sites on the world wide web and through mail-order-catalogues.
Uses of Solar Energy Ever since the dawn of time, the sun has been a resource we cannot live or do without, so its not such a shock that man has come up with the idea of solar energy. Solar energy had many uses. Some can be dangerous and some, a very valuable asset to the modern world. Solar energy is energy derived from the sun in a form of ultra-violet rays. Its was first applied to use in 212 B.C., by the Greek genius Archimedes.
Although there are many sceptics out there, more people have agreed with the use of solar panels. Honestly, who wouldn't be for it? Saves money in the long run, and protects the environment. But on the downside is takes up more space, and has an expensive upfront cost. We can see the technology has come a long way, so its your choice.
The university of Delaware build “solar one” one of the first PV powered residence. After that Arco solar became the first produced more than 1 megawatt of PV in one year. Around 1982 worldwide PV production exceeds 9.3 megawatts. Then in 1986, the world’s largest thermal electricity facility began built in California’s Mojave Desert. Then NASA got in the action and installed 83 photovoltaic power systems on every continent except for Australia.
Solar energy is a leading form of sustainable energy which is used around the world to supply heat and electricity to homes. On the smaller scale solar energy can be used to recharge a phone, supply a calculator with power and run many other things. Solar energy can be an avenue to many advances fr... ... middle of paper ... ... lead to many advantages in the future. Solar energy exists all over the world and by using the sun to produce energy that can impact the users. This type of energy has not always been used to its full advantage and now it can be.
It is also a type of energy that humans have a lot of, the amount is almost endless. People who live far and isolated from electricity power plants can just use the solar panels that are installed on their roof for energy. Changing to solar energy will also help life on Earth greatly in the long run and will help slow disasters such as global warming. Solar energy is more significant than anyone could have imagined.
The popularity of solar energy is gaining. Meanwhile, we’re saving lots of energy. Which is always is a good thing. Everyday the number of people who see the great benefits about solar energy increases. There’s a whole list of the advantages of solar energy and more people need to realize it.
