Why There are SO Many Benefits Using Solar Energy?
There are so many benefits using Solar Energy in a proper way of course. Who knows if this is an example of how to use solar power in a proper way but did you see the movie named “Race the Sun” with James Belushi and Halley Berry in the main lead? Then you remember a car shaped like a cockroach. It was covered with solar. Who runs the cars? Sun’s rays of course. This energy was an alternative power source for them. This was a fascinating insight for me.
Here you can see that solar energy is the light and the heat from the sun. It’s important to know that this kind of energy is free and its supplies are unlimited. But the most important fact is that there are no air and water pollution caused about by using solar energy. O.K we have to stay honest. There is nothing ideal because there are still some impacts on the environment although indirect.
Even here we produce some waste materials. You have to know that photovoltaic cells used to convert sunlight into electricity use silicon, and this is the source of the waste. It’s also harmful to the desert if we are building a vast solar system in the desert without properly managing.
Where can we found benefits using solar energy yet? It can be used in different aspects. Agriculture is only one of the possibilities for example. Did you ever hear about greenhouses? This isn’t greenhouse gas of course. Here we speak about the effect where the solar light is converted to heat to be maximized in enhancing the growth of plants and crops. Greenhouses aren’t something new. It has been around since the Roman times, and modern greenhouses were built in Europe in the 16th century, and they are still an important part of horticulture nowadays.
We can also use a daylight systems to maximize an energy which the sun can release. It can also replace the artificial lighting to provide interior illumination. In short, we can say that daylight systems include the light shelf, skylights, and light tube. When daylight systems are properly implemented, they can reduce lighting-related energy consumption by 25 percent.
It is also interesting that solar energy can also be developed into solar thermal technologies. These techniques can be used for water heating, space heating, space cooling and process heat generation. We can also distil water. We can make drinkable water from saline or brackish.
Also, we can convert into electricity using photovoltaics or PV. Small and medium-sized things like a calculator are very suitable to be powered by a single solar cell. Even some homes are powered by photovoltaics. Solar energy is very usable for water and space heating. This is practically the widest application of solar energy. Of course, we should not forget that ventilation and solar air heating is also growing in popularity.
But we can simply say that the main way of using and converting solar energy is by using the solar cells which produce electricity.
