Uses of Solar Energy in Our Daily Life

The environment is being damaged severely, and using solar energy is also a good way to protect our dear living place and space. Solar energy is the solar power derived from the sunlight by using solar panels. It is just one of the latest initiatives that the movement of “Go Green” has revealed, in an attempt to build up and maintain renewable and sustainable power sources. As with other new additions to your home, there is definitely the solar installation cost to build the system up and run it, as well as the initial costs of the components.
Instead of burning fossil fuels like coal and natural gas, consumers can take advantage of the infinite energy of the sun to power homes, cars, and appliances. Explore the everyday uses of solar energy to see how this resource can transform your future, not just the future.
Uses of Solar Energy are:
Solar Transportation An innovative practice to effectively make use of the sunshine is with transportation powered by photovoltaic (PV) energy. Railroad…

Building Integrated PhotoVoltaics - BIPV

There is a myth amongst urbanites that solar energy is more suited for rural applications. While acknowledging the fact that solar energy has contributed significantly to build rural infrastructure, it can in the same vein impact the urban populace and corporates. The impact would be evident in the coming years as the relevance of energy security gains in importance.
The benefits of solar power are compelling: environmental protection, economic growth, job creation, diversity of fuel supply and rapid deployment, as well as the global potential for technology transfer and innovation.
There’s a perception among many that solar systems are very expensive. However, this is only a perception. In reality, one needs to understand the entire life cycle cost to drive home the point. Solar photovoltaic systems for generating electricity need a high initial investment but more importantly very low or negligible running cost. A solar module has a life of 25 years and delivers reliable performance…

Working of Solar Water Heater

A solar water heating system is a device that uses solar energy to heat water for domestic, commercial, and industrial needs. Heating of water is the most common application of solar energy in the world. A typical solar water heating system can save up to 1500 units of electricity every year, for every 100 litres per day of solar water heating capacity.
Working: • The system is generally installed on the roof or open ground, with the collector facing the sun and connected to a continuous water supply. • Water flows through the tubes, absorbs solar heat and becomes hot. • The heated water is stored in a tank for further use. • The water stored in the tank remains hot overnight as the storage tank is insulated and heat losses are small.
There are actually two types of Collectors. They are: Flat-plate collectors Flat plates are the simplest collectors: at their most basic, they're little more than water pipes running through shallow metal boxes coated with thick black glass. The glass collec…

What You Need to Know Before Installing Solar Panels on Your Roof

Are you planning to install solar panels on your rooftop? Are you ready to go green? Then there are some important things that you should consider before installing solar panels. Take some time and go through the important points for a perfect installation of solar panel and its use in future.
India is one of the few countries which is blessed with abundant solar energy. The country has a tremendous scope for the growth of the solar power. However, factors like lack of proper knowledge about the solar power technology amongst the consumers and penetration of second-grade products in the market.
Roof Condition, Material, and Layout: One of the great things about solar panels is their durability. It can be challenging and costly to remove and reinstall panels to make way for roof work, so repair any damage—or replace the roof altogether, if needed—before installing your array.
Along with your roof condition, consider its layout, materials, and direction. The amount of rooftop space in your…
