  1. 1. Solar Power <ul><li>By Melissa Arnaud and Brooke Murphy </li></ul><ul><li>Period:4 </li></ul><ul><li>November 3,2009 </li></ul>
  2. 2. What is solar energy? <ul><li>Solar energy is energy from the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a renewable resource and it can help power a lot of things like cars and even our houses. </li></ul>
  3. 3. How it powers things:
  4. 4. How Solar Power is used today: <ul><li>To power cars, homes, and buildings </li></ul><ul><li>Heat/ cool water and homes </li></ul><ul><li>Cook food </li></ul><ul><li>Helps grow plants because plants use photosynthesis. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Why it's good for the environment: <ul><li>It helps the pollution level go down. </li></ul><ul><li>It is better for the environment than fossil fuels and coal. </li></ul><ul><li>Solar Energy doesn't pollute the Earth it helps reverse global warming. </li></ul>
  6. 6. How it's stored: <ul><li>Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to harness the energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Solar energy's uses are limited only by human cleverness. </li></ul><ul><li>Solar radiation is stored into the panels and powers what ever it’s powering. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Economic Impacts of Solar Energy: The economic impact is supply/ demand. Solar will boom as more people think solar will be useful. It can also save you money in the long run.
  8. 8. FACTS: <ul><li>Renewable Resource </li></ul><ul><li>Can Power a lot of other things than cars and homes. </li></ul><ul><li>From the sun. </li></ul>
