Make it solar

  1. 1. HARNESSING SOLAR POWER
  2. 2. THE SUN The word solar stems from the Roman word for the god of the sun, Sol. Therefore, the word solar refers to the Sun and “solar power” is power from the Sun. The sun provides Earth with 2 major forms of energy; heat and light. Both of these forms of energy can be harnessed and utilized for man's benefit.
  3. 3. SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS Photovoltaic literally means "light-electricity". It is formed using 'photo' which means light and 'voltaic' which means electrical current or electricity. Photovoltaic Panels are are used to transform sunlight energy into electrical energy. ”PV panel” is the common name for a photovoltaic panel. It uses solar cells to produce electricity which is the used immediately to power many household appliances like lights,fans,T.V etc.
  4. 4. THERMAL SYSTEMS Solar panels collect heat energy from the sun. We call this heat 'solar thermal energy.' It is usually a closed box covered with transparent material such as glass or plastic which traps the heat entering the box and can be utilized for heating the house, heating water, cooking etc. As we know,today the prices of fuels are soaring. What would be better but to use zero cost solar power instead of LPG for cooking !?
  5. 5. ADVANTAGES OF USING SOLAR POWER Solar Energy is a renewable resource. It reduces our dependence on fossil fuels. These systems are cheap and easy to install. Almost no electricity is required in both;maintaining and using these not too complex devices.
  6. 6. MAKE IT SOLAR! The earth urgently needs our help. Years of exploitation have drained out most resources from the earth and it has been damaged beyond repair. However,there is still hope . We can still save our planet and ourselves.
  7. 7. Other GREEN ways to integrate renewable energy Using wind energy. Using Hydel energy to generate electricity. Using biomass energy to generate electricity.
  8. 8. THANKS FOR WATCHING
