Create your own green, renewable energy.
What is Solar Energy? Solar power is the energy converted from sunlight into usable electricity.
Sunlight is harnessed directly through the use of solar panels, which are made up of a transparent photovoltaic (PV) glass as well as PV cells which are responsible for converting sunlight into electricity.
Sunlight can also be harnessed as thermal energy through the use of concentrators and reflectors.
Thermal energy can be used for heating homes during cold weather or for heating water in place of traditional gas boiler and immersion systems.
