Solar power electricity is made available by converting sunlight into electricity through the use of solar cells. Individual solar cells are grouped together in a sealed, weatherproof package called a solar panel. Solar power electricity can be used to power equipment or recharge batteries.
Most solar energy electricity is used in conjunction with traditional power systems. These are connected to the “grid”. By comparison, fewer are “off-grid” systems such as rural dwellings, electric cars, recreational vehicles, boats and roadside emergency telephones.
Solar power electricity can be delivered cleanly, quietly and reliably. To be fully effective and most efficient, the system needs to be in the sun’s path as much as possible. This should definitely be kept in mind when deciding whether or not solar energy will benefit you. Trackers are available to make sure the system is getting the optimum amount of sunlight, but they can also reduce the amount of usable energy of the system.
The majority of power stations that utilize solar power electricity are in Europe, but they exist throughout the industrialized world. Applications in the transportation industry are typically reserved for auxiliary power in boats and cars. Solar applications have been used in space exploration for many years.
Only a few decades ago, only a handful of private homes in the United States used solar power electricity as their primary heating and cooling system. A number of energy scares, including the oil embargo in 1973 and the energy crisis of 1979, led to a renewed interest in alternative energy sources. Government programs and private research facilities grew rapidly around the world.
The 1970s saw widespread growth in solar energy electricity, but as oil prices steadily declined toward the end of the 20th Century the growth of the solar industry slowed. The 21st Century, however, has seen a renewed interest in solar power. Volatility in the oil and natural gas industry, global warming concerns and improvements in the solar industry relative to other alternative energy sources have all been factors in the renewed interest. Solar power electricity increased by an average of 20% per year over the last decade.
Solar power electricity http://www.epa.gov/cleanenergy/energy-and-you/affect/non-hydro.html#solar is becoming more widespread as the cost decreases and the technology continues to improve. It is estimated that over the next two decades enough electricity will be produced by the solar industry to provide power to more than 10% of the world’s population. According the International Energy Agency, solar power currently accounts for .5% of the the electricity supplied in the world. The IEA predicts that by the year 2050 approximately one-quarter of the world’s population will be supplied by solar electricity. They estimate that roughly half of the solar energy will be supplied by solar panels on homes and office buildings while the other half will be produced by solar power stations.
The most recent research shows that solar energy is the second-fastest-growing global renewable energy market after wind power, and that solar power electricity continues to gain global acceptance as a clean and cost-effective energy source.
