What Is Solar Energy?
Solar energy means using the energy of sunlight to provide electricity, to heat water, and to heat or cool homes, businesses or industry.
There are two methods by which solar energy is converted into a usable source of power. Both methods use solar panels to collect the solar energy but one process focuses on the sunís heat and one process focuses on the sunís light. When setting up a home to use solar energy for its power source, the most efficient home solar setup will utilize both processes.
