Three Important Uses Of Solar Energy


Our life is a true challenge for survival. First, it may seem an exaggeration; however, the picture will show up if you look closely around you. People are so busy with their daily bustle that they stop noticing problems in our environment. For me, the last pandemic was a precise message from nature; it is merely screaming for help, but only a few people pay attention. The proper human lifestyle should not be forced by extreme conditions but be resulted from self-awareness and high consciousness. If only one could realize all the influence of his or her activities, we would, undoubtedly, live on a better planet. It is never late to raise awareness and change something for the better. The key to solving many issues of our environment is simple, and it is called solar energy. This is not just my personal opinion; as time shows, more and more people are switching to this renewable energy consumption for several reasons. The primary motivation for many people remains its cost-efficiency. As solar system installation has tax incentives and ROIs (return on investments) and provides electricity tax reduction to zero with time, its demand is overgrowing.


Solar For Electrical Appliances

So, what is solar energy, and why do we call it renewable? The answer is simple; it produces 100% carbon-free and environmentally friendly electricity from natural the resource – the sun, available most of the day in most areas of the world. This energy is produced by photovoltaic modules or solar panels, which absorb sunlight and transform it into direct current (DC). This DC is then converted into an alternative current (AC) suitable for all kinds of house loads’ energy consumption. The converted energy is fed into the power outputs and can be utilized upon demand. As soon as the installation’s initial cost is reimbursed, you receive zero-tax electricity right from your solar system. This power is suitable for all electrical appliances without any exceptions. When the sun goes down, the solar power battery comes for help. It stores the excess energy produced during the whole day and supplies your power loads with electricity during the night or during a power outage. Solar energy is also suitable for innovative home system applications, including energy monitoring function, alarm system, remote power control, etc. Besides the individual use of solar energy for residential or commercial purposes, people are also widely experiencing solar farms’ production for electricity provision in the entire cities. These farms have been evaluated into concentrated solar power (CSP) sources. These CSPs use mirrors to concentrate the natural power received from the sun and generate thermal energy. This flexibility opens a new door to solar energy consumption. Modern technologies supply the end-users with all the required equipment and solutions to get the ultimate out of this renewable energy source.


Solar For Vehicles

The benefits of solar energy are not limited only to the options mentioned above. It is also an excellent method to charge electric vehicles. All the EVs, disregard the manufacturing brand, can be charged by solar energy. This fact adds incredible comfort and reliability to the driver. You can quickly put your EV to charge via your home solar battery that has already stored the necessary energy produced during the day. And it is free of charge. EV charging stations are small and easy to install; hence they are everywhere in the cities; commercial centers, workplaces, parking lots, etc. Furthermore, many manufacturers of solar have already produced portable units for roadside EV charging. These devices do not require any installation and have the capacity to charge the electric vehicle up to one mile/per minute ratio.


Solar For Batteries

As this branch is growing in demand, solar energy companies permanently evaluate and develop new solutions for solar. Accept it or not, our life depends on electronic gadgets and smart systems. From this viewpoint, solar batteries are incredible devices that add reliability and comfort to our daily routine activities. These devices are designed to store excess power and inject it into the house outlets whenever necessary. A typical home solar system requires one or two power storage batteries to thoroughly comply with your daily energy consumption demands.

Nevertheless, very often our demand for energy doesn’t suit our conditions. Thus, for instance, our smartphone or tablet must always be available for us; otherwise, our plans for the day will fail. At the same time, these devices run low on battery very fast since we use them permanently. Here portable solar charges for small devices come to help. Moreover, modern smartphone manufacturers are planning the project of solar cells’ integration into the device itself. This is what I call “the future is now.”


Besides all the above-mentioned advantages of solar energy, it is carbon-free and produces zero emissions of CO2 gasses. For most consumers, this is not the number one motivation for switching to solar energy. However, as the last few years’ statistics claim, people do switch to this energy consumption for the above-listed reasons. Each of us must clearly understand that we decide what planet our children are to live on tomorrow. Once we all take this for granted, I truly believe we will evaluate our environmental conditions.
