THE SOLAR EXPERIENCE
Solar energy is created by nuclear fusion that takes place in the sun. This process releases a great amount of energy in the form of waves and particles that are constantly flowing away from the sun and throughout the solar system. Solar energy warms our planet, causes wind and weather and sustains plant and animal life.
Solar brings several benefits not only to your home but for the planet. The most important benefit of solar is that this is a real renewable energy source. It can be harnessed in all areas of the world and is available every day. Then solar energy has a low environmental impact comparing with the conventional energy sources. Solar energy can be used to produce electricity in areas without access to the energy grid, to distill water in regions with limited clean water supplies and to power satellites in space.
In this video Richard Komp examines how solar panels convert solar energy to electrical energy. See full lesson at:
