PV stands for photovoltaic or Photoelectric cells. That convert light directly into electricity. In a sunny climate, you can get power for a w100 light bulb from just one square mater of a solar panel. To day many of us are using calculators that are powered by solar cells. People all over the world are increasingly installing PV Panels on there roofs. They coast thousands of dollars but you save money on your electricity bill and any extra energy the government will pay for it. This is called “feed-in tariff .”We are using the sun to heat our shower water instead of using so much gas or electricity to heat our shower water in our homes. Water is pumped through these pipes. These pipes are painted black so when they pass there the black pipes and the sun shines on the pipes the water get’s hotter as it passes through. Solar Panels can really help with heating our shower water and with help a lot with our electricity bill’s but you must remember to drain the pipes or they will freeze. in the winter. It is worth getting a Solar Panels in places California and Australia where you get lots of sunshine. Solar cells provide the energy to run satellites that orbit the Earth. The satellites that orbit the Earth give us use of TV, telephones, navigation, weather , forecasting,and the internet.
The advantages to solar energy when your power goes out you will still have some solar energy(if stored in a generator).Solar power Is renewable the sun will keep on shining anyway so makes sense to use it. Solar energy does not need fuel no waste or pollution. Mostly sunny places are a good place for solar energy and you will get more solar energy where it is sunny.
Solar energy doesn’t work at night. Its also very expensive to build solar power stations, solar cells cost a great deal compared to the of electricity they’ll produce in a lifetime. It can be unreliable unless your
in a very sunny climate, you need a large amount of space to get a decent amount of power. Some toxic materials and chemicals and various solvents and alcohols that can be bad for the environment(not all the time).
