The sun is the source of life and of the other forms of energy that humanity has used since the dawn of time. The idea of leveraging solar energy for heat or light is intuitive. Solar energy can meet all of our energy needs if we learn how to harness the light and heat that reaches our plant
Solar energy is a type of renewable energy that consists of using energy from the sun to produce electricity or heat water. There are different ways to use solar energy, either passively as a way to save energy, or actively by using the sun's heat in the form of thermal, solar thermal or thermoelectric energy, or through solar photovoltaic energy.
The main benefits of solar energy are:
It is from a renewable source and, therefore, is inexhaustible.
Its environmental impact and the pollution it produces is much lower compared with other types of energy.
It helps reduce the greenhouse effect produced by CO₂ emissions and climate change caused by greenhouse gases.
It creates local jobs and strengthens economic development.
It helps reduce energy dependence as it can be used all over the planet.
It's available in isolated areas without requiring complex grid systems.
