The History Of Solar Energy
Solar energy is one of the most popular renewable energy sources in the world. And it's no wonder why. Solar energy offers a number of benefits, including reducMarissa Frontz12/10/20238 minutes read
Solar technologies convert sunlight into electrical energy using photovoltaic (PV) panels or mirrors that concentrate solar radiation. This energy can be used to generate electricity or be stored in batteries or thermal storage.
Non-metallic materials such as brick, stone and brick are good absorbers of solar energy, especially if they have dark colors. Plastics and wood can be good energy absorbers, but many types are not suitable for solar applications because most plastics have relatively low melting points and wood can catch fire.
When the sun shines on a solar panel, the energy of sunlight is absorbed by the photovoltaic cells in the panel. This energy creates electrical charges that move in response to an internal electric field in the cell, causing electricity to flow.
