WHAT IS SOLAR POWER ?
Solar power is energy that is produced from the sun. Sunlight is converted into energy through a process called photovoltaics. Solar energy is a form of renewable energy. It can be used for a range of things from homesteads, commercial buildings and even entire city’s. It is a cost effective method of renewable energy, that can be set up for a small price.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF SOLAR POWER
PASSIVE SOLAR POWER
ACTIVE SOLAR POWER
THERMAL SOLAR POWER
PHOTO-VOLTAIC SOLAR POWER
CONCENTRATING SOLAR POWER
BENEFITS OF SOLAR POWER
Combines (C)PV and CSP with one another like wind or bio.
Combines concentrator photovoltaics with the non-PV technology of concentrated solar thermal.
Combines CSP with a gas turbine.
Combines a solar (PV) module with a solar thermal collector.
It uses concentrated photovoltaics (CPV) instead of conventional PV technology, and combines it with a solar thermal collector.
PV diesel system
Combines a photovoltaic system with another renewable energy system.
