The New Frontier: Solar Energy

0 Comment

In its beginning stages, solar energy is being utilized to power buildings and dwellings. Just as all those years ago it was discovered that once could produce electricity through a conductor, it is now being determined that one can utilize the properties found in the sun to provide power that electricity provides.

The sun’s energy, called photons, can be captured through specially designed panels that can be placed on roof tops. The solar panels are comprised of cells that are utilized in the solar energy transfer. Once captured, these photons can produce lighting, etc. for buildings and dwellings. The process, which involves the propensity for the photons to displace the electrons that are found around atoms. Without the electrons, which produce electricity when conjoined with atoms, the photons can invade and produce the same electricity from the sun. Since the concept is fairly new, the costs to supply the energy were a little high. The prices for this new service are increasingly coming down rendering it more affordable for the consumer to acquire these services. By 2017 it is noted, solar energy had become the fastest growing source of power in the world. These are very promising concepts.

The process of photosynthesis, which is where plants derive oxygen from the sun in order to be viable, is the same process involved in providing solar energy. The sun has long been known as the giver of life to the earth. The sun provides the necessary properties to plant life that causes them to emit oxygen into the air. Since it is necessary for animal life to breathe in oxygen, plants play a viable role in the ecosystem where animals are involved. Animals emit a gas called carbon monoxide, and without oxygen, which is what is released from plants, the animal will suffocate and die. Much like fish, who rely on their oxygen from the molecules found in water (H2O) would die once they are set out on a river bank.

The process of photosynthesis as it relates to solar energy involves the breaking up of electrons from atoms which provides an evasive process by which the particles emitted from the sun called photons can occur. In this instance, rather than providing restorative powers from the sun, the photosynthesis provides an evasive process. Although evasive in the sense that the photons cause electricity in this process, it is not a harmful process to living beings. There are now solar panels available such as various rv solar panel kits and many others.

Fossil fuels, oil and gas, have long been utilized as a source of power. Fossil fuels are derived from remnants of animal products from centuries ago that are found in different parts of the earth. Heavily contested for years as not being the most desired method by which energy is processed, it has been a use for standard operations for many years. Fossil fuel causes the problems of air pollution through the by-products emitted into the air, etc. Solar energy is touted as being a clean source of energy. There are no harmful emissions with solar energy as the energy comes from the sun. The sun is long known for its ability to nourish the earth through providing the elements necessary in oxygenation.…
