A Great Primer On Solar Power

A great new resource for solar power I found.  They first of all provided me with an abundant amount of information. That’s on all forms on green technologies.  One of my first sets of data that caught my eye was the information on solar power.  Here is a small excerpt from that page.

Solar power is a key part of energy independence and clean energy because of two key facts about solar energy:

  • First, the sun is a limitless and a completely free natural resource available to everyone on Earth.

  • Second, in one hour the Sun supplies the Earth with enough energy for an entire year.

Solar energy harnessed by the use of solar cells, also known as Photovoltaic cells.  As well. Solar Photovoltaic Technologies can be used in many products like calculators, key chains, outdoor lighting and more.

The more solar technology integrates into our lives the less reliant on fossil fuels we will be. However, as we all know and have seen worldwide, investment into solar technologies must always continue.

Finally and for the entire primer, please check out my book Solar Power For your Home.
