Solar energy is one of the game-changers of history. In a world of limited energy, pollution, climate change, and finite resources, harnessing solar energy completely flips the possibilities of our environment. The power of the sun is totally clean and renewable. It won’t run out and it won’t harm the environment. Now that we’ve created adequate technology for gathering and using the solar energy from the sun we are able to apply it in so many ways.
Many Uses of Solar Energy
- Transportation: solar energy is slowly but surely making its way into the field of transportation. Solar buses are being used in large Chinese cities. Australia is moving forward with solar powered cars successfully. Solar Impulse is a solar powered aircraft that recently few around the world. Trains, subways, and basically anything that moves has been introduced to the benefits of clean and renewable solar energy.
- Lighting: Solar light is one of the very best ways we’ve begun using solar energy. No matter where in the world, no matter how disadvantaged or behind in technology, solar powered lighting can create a safer, better world. Street lights powered by small solar panels are found in residential, commercial, and even underdeveloped areas of the world.
- Heating: Solar space or water heaters are growing in popularity. Solar water heaters are becoming a top choice for outdoor pools, as they can gather solar power and then convert it to heat the pool for much less energy and cost.
- Portable Tech: Solar powered chargers are a great way to power small tablets, cell phones, speakers, flashlights, and other small electronic appliances while on vacation, camping, or in the event of an emergency. We highly recommend a small solar charger just in the event of an accident, emergency, or natural disaster disrupting your electrical power.
- Building Power: And of course, the prevalent residential and business roof-mounted solar. Solar panels on the roof of a Utah home or business can supply all the power needed, depending on size and power needs. It can lower or eliminate utility bills while reducing pollution and cost of modern electrical power production.
Solar technology is still rapidly developing and progressing in impressive ways. We’re finding more and more opportunities to use solar to save the environment, money, and the world. It will be amazing to see how solar is being used ten years down the road. But if you’re ready to start using solar now, call us. We can help reduce or eliminate your power bill, while you save the world.
