Solar Power

Parent Category: Renewable Energy
Solar power is the conversion of solar energy into electricity or thermal energy, either by indirectly using concentrated solar power or directly using photovoltaics – the use of solar panels which consist of various cells made of photovoltaic material.
 Clouds   Particles in the atmosphere  Oceans  Snow and ice      Part of the solar energy that comes to Earth is reflected back out  to space in the same, short wavelengths in which it came to Earth.
It depends on many factors, such as weather conditions (how much  sun there is in the specific time, which can also be affected by  which hemisphere you're in). Speaking generally, solar panels have  low energy density (many are needed for a significant amount of  energy.) But after the initial...
1. It is very 'clean' - there aren't by-products.   2. It is renewable    and as a special...   3. It is free
Solar cells (also known as photovoltaic cells) are made of solar  cells. To be more specific, they are made of slices of a  semiconductor with a metal layer.
By production, 9.0%. By consumption, 6.2%.   According to the National Energy Renewable Laboratory 2013  Databook, renewable electricity grew to nearly 15% of total  installed capacity and 13% of total electricity generation in the  United Statesin 2013. See pages 8 and 9 for % coal, gas,...
Yes, the denser the cloud of water vapor, the more solar energy is  blocked, or more accurately "reflected" back into space.
basicly any where in the world where yhe sun mostly shines like Fiji or India or even Samoa so there you go all what ur looking forThey use solar power to charge the batteries for lights on buoys.
What makes it a useful source? It's free, abundant and reliable. It  can be converted to a number of energy sources. 1) Photovoltaic  panels can convert sunlight to electricity. 2) you can use sunlight  to heat water for things like bathing and energy storage in  something like a water tank that...
Another type of concentrating solar collector that opticallyreflects and focuses the suns incident solar energy onto a smallreceiving area using mirrors or lenses is called a SolarDish Collector , or more technically, a point focusingcollector . By concentrating the sunlight to a single spot,...
There has not been any given proof of this. So it shouldn't be taken seriously.
Double glazing helps the environment by saving on energy usage, keeping out noise and your mum :)
In two ways. Photovoltaic (PV) cells and panels convert energy from sunlight into a flow of electrons (electricity). This can be on rooftops or in huge arrays out in the desert. Solar ovens and solar farms use mirrors to focus the sun's rays onto a central point. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)...
Location, Location, Location. If you're on a major river, Hydro is great (as long as it doesn'tinterfere with the environment too much). On the other hand, Solar is avail anywhere the sun shines. Edit: Hydro is preferable, it is much more efficient, however Solar ismore versatile, so yeah, it is...
Because solar energy can not constipate more than enough of its resource so if it has to supply energy to a large city the solar energy wouldn't be able to supply that much Hope this helped youTasnim Salem
The solar cells do not work during cloudy,humid,cold or rainy weather. It can be used only during the summer seasons.
The difference between a float charger and a trickle   charger is that the float has circuitry to prevent   overcharging. It senses when the battery voltage is at the   maximum level and temporarily shuts off the charge (floats   voltage at zero or a very minimal charge until it senses ...
The cooker is well insulated, so it stays hot.
tht wind is involved and then u need to run it through water and then wen u mis the solution up yo get a substance that is soo dense and viscous and then yaaa pretty much it and then u put nuclear energy in it so then it charges up the electrons and they are goood to go. and remember i won spell bee...
Light. White light is a mixture of various colors; some of them visible for our eyes, some of them not. (In the latter case, instead of "colors" the word "frequency" is usually used, since "color" implies that it is visible.)
Renewable energy. Wind energy is made by the wind it is really very simple all it is is the wind blowing wind then that electricity is drawn into a large generator which is then formed into wind energy that can power your home appliences.
A typical solar panel will produce about 75% of the rated power during full sunlight hours if the weather is cool enough to allow for operation. Warm weather or clouds will degrade their performance. Most panels produce less power during their expected life then what it takes to build a unit.
Likely because being so far north, the angle of sunlight is notideal, plus the daylight hours are lower than other places, meaningthat you have less sunlight time to gather power.
Endless, scalable, and cheaper than ever. This year (2017) for thefirst time, the price of photovoltaic solar became cheaper thanthat of fossil fuels. There has never been a better time to gosolar.
"Large" is relative. What is considered huge when installed on one house may be small compared to another, and it could be tiny compared to one at a solar power plant.
Well, it is very low maintenence. All you have to do is buy it, (which seems like a lot of money, but in long terms it isn't) then put it in your selected area and there ya go!
Um...LEDs? I think you mean the other way round - how do you convert solarenergy into DC Power? Or in other words, how do you convert energyfrom the sun into usable electricity? A basic system will include the solar panel itself, a chargecontroller, a battery, and of course, the load (lights,...
Not necessarily. Energy can be solar energy in the form of thermal and light energies, but there are other types of energies, like kinetic or chemical.
They are both electromagnetic rays and both are produced by stellar objects.

She wants to convince readers to buy solar panels.
something that will absorb heat.
Land reflects the Sun's energy slowly, while oceans absorb it more quickly.
the energy from the suns rays enters the solar panels
yes, there is a wind power system to generate 85 kwh per hour( 750 mwh per year).
it would cost at least 1million pounds to build

the sun's energy is called solar energy
Oblique rays that strike the object. Oblique rays strike the object being viewed, illuminating the object and reflect light rays up through the objective.
hello Michael pie they can be big or small
Electric power, dissipated as energy is produced by spinning generators. The generators are in turn driven by a rotating force, produced by a number of means. Water under pressure driven through a hypodermic needle hole hits the vanes in a turbine and causes it to spin. the spinning turbine is...
People use the sun's energy directly and indirectly in many ways.  They use it to dry their clothes, grow food, heat their water,  generate electricity, and to heat a home.
If you stand in the sun it gives you vitamin C, and also another way is to use the sun is by using it to power solar powered electricity. The sun generates all energy we have on earth. Plants use sunlight for photosynthesis and the cycle goes from there. Also the sun heats the earth.
In some circumstances, ultraviolet light may inteact with matter to produce heat, but it does not carry heat. Heat is carried by matter in motion since heat (temperature) is a characteristic of matter.
Solar power is becoming more popular, but scientists are trying to improve the overall efficiency of the technology.
  == Answer ==   In the Northern Hemisphere, the south side of the house gets the most sunlight during the year. To maximize collection of solar energy from sunlight, solar panels are located at the south side of the house.
The satellite collects energy from the sun in a similar fashion to terrestrial solar panels, after which it beams it down to a rectanna on earth through a microwave
The solar energy that is absorbed in gasses clouds and ozone is little. The UV spectrum is absorbed.
No. Solar energy comes in the form of electromagnetic radiation.
there are two types solar updraft towerssolar power towersin updraft towers solar thermal collector are usedin solar power towers heliostat are used
how are solar cells used in homes
Solar panels can be put anywhere where they would get sunlight. The more light they would get, the better. It'd be pretty wasteful to buy solar panels and hook them up in your basement, after all.Most residences that make use of solar panels typically put them on their roofs. If you're living in the...
Because plastic isn't as good a conductor of heat as metal.
No, they reduce energy within a building to save the planet.
They are good because they reduce energy to save the planet.
This may be only personal opinion, but the costs of harnessing solar power are giving up polluted air and pointless wars fought over fossil fuels. I'll admit that going to solar power for everything from houses to cars would kill the oil industry, so that might be a cost for you, if you care for...
Fossil fuels that can be obtained using current technology are called proven reserves.
Ideally, you would leave your solar panels out year-round, and just keep them clean and free of debris (leaves, etc.) to get as much a return on them as possible.
SOLAR PANEL Of COURSE!(not to be mean)
Heat and other energetic radiation from the sun causes climate and weather changes. A very large fraction of changes in weather, including warming and cooling climate trends, are brought to us by the oceans. For instance, the North Atlantic oscillation ( a cycle of temperature changing regularly...
A solar heating system can provide heat on a cloudy day if it is equipped with a giant thermal bottle. The heated water or oil in the thermal bottle can be used to provide heat long after the sun is gone.
  38% of Sunlight received on Earth is received on Neptune.
The solar cell coverts the sun light into energy/electricity
  in shading conditions also the solar raditions will reach the earth i think this will not effect the solar panels and also the mppt   in shading conditions also the solar raditions will reach the earth i think this will not effect the solar panels and also the mppt
The energy that the sun gives off are heat and light. Living things on Earth need these forms of energy.
Your question is a bit strange. Solar energy can be stored in many ways - an underappreciated wayof storing solar power is in the form of vegetables. Another is inbatteries. Algae is another possibility. A very long term way ofstoring solar power is by converting it into organic materials(trees,...
I've personally looked into it a few times in the past. Most companies that sell them nowadays have web sites (who doesn't, really?) that tell you whether they sell them in a physical store, or ordered online.I'd suggest going through a search engine, and inputting the city, state, or province that...
as all know it is a renewable source of energy and use of it can decrease pollution and it is available to all places...........
ultra violet radiatons are harmful for human
In light of recent improvements in solar panels and inversion technology, increasing demand, increasing costs, and the fact that America as a nation has yet to improve it's energy independence solar power is now becoming very practical for many a household. Add in the fact that the government helps...
Solar energy produced only 0.1 percent of US total electricity in 2006, so it is hardly replacing anything as yet in that total. More solar energy is captured by individual houses and used for water heating and possibly space heating, not in photo-voltaic cells. This partially replaces whatever that...
Primal (= primitive - the first) should be the word in the question.Prime means most important. [from my dictionary.]Whilst gravity was the original source for concentrating the Sun's material, Fusion took over and is more important in generating the heat.
Basically the words Hydro, Wind, Solar Refer to three different sources of Renewable Energy which produce energy from different sources like Water, Air, Sun's heat
there is always light coming from the sun, thus bringing forth heat. even though there are clouds, the light travels through clouds, bringing you heat.i cant believe you didnt already know this:)
No   The energy that powers the sun are nuclear  reactions.    Sun Light is a form of energy that the sun gives  off but it is not the only energy emitted from the sun.  Heat is another form of energy from the sun that's why you feel hot  on a summers day

There will always be a need for some kind of energy, as there always has been. The most basic type of energy is solar energy, utilized by flora via photosynthesis. The way we used this energy was by consuming these flora, and the fauna which had also consumed the flora. In the future, we will likely...
It really depends on what the indoor pool's components look like,first and foremost being the pump motor. If the pump is 12V DC (ormultiples of that...), you are in business, because a 12V solarpower system is very straightforward to design and implement, asyou don't need an inverter. If it's not ...
There is no difference between a light bulb powered by regular power and solar power, the difference is where the power comes from.
Charles Fritts created the first solar cells made from selenium wafers in 1883.
1.  Solar lamps work with solar panels that absorb energy and store it in a battery 2.  Solar lamps, unlike other lamps, do not need electricity, but they must be placed in an area that gets at least 4 hours of direct sun per day 3.  Solar lamps are used in USA primarily for cost...
