Solar power is the energy that comes from the sun as light and heat energy, and then it is later converted into electrical energy through solar panels (Nelson, 2008). This kind of power is completely free, right? Why should we put a lot of expense on other sources of energy, when there is a complete free and healthy power? It is evident that solar energy is a healthy source of energy, which will help stop global warming all together, but it is economically efficient to switch everything to solar energy. Solar energy is capable of becoming the world's future power supply because, it is renewable, eco-friendly, and extremely efficient when strategically placed.

This is natural sunlight that is captured and transformed to power the electricity in homes by installing solar power panels. Resources that are needed to power an eco friendly home are important and the need for inexpensive and easy access ones is vital. The sun is the most common and most admired resource to use due to its variety of usage. The sun has a variety of possibilities that it could be used to transfer into electricity and even for hot water procedures. Another reason why it is the most common is because it is the easiest to install and obtain, and also, saves humans the most amount of money.

The first example of a source of renewable energy is solar energy. This type of energy comes from the abundant energy of the sun. How solar energy works is it uses solar panels or solar cells to create and convert solar energy into mechanical energy, ... ... middle of paper ... ...c Power." Energy Facts: Hydro-Electric Power.
