Interesting Facts About Solar
The earth gets 174 Petawatts of incoming solar radiation in the upper atmosphere. About 30% is reflected back to space and the rest is absorbed by oceans, clouds, and land masses.
PV solar energy is the only form of electricity that doesn’t require any moving parts.It is also non-polluting, extremely reliable, doesn’t make any noise and has no emissions. You really can’t go wrong here.
It takes the average homeowner six to fifteen years to pay off their solar panels; those living in sunnier climates or states with good incentive programs can do it in as little as two years.
Solar energy has also another use. By means of photosynthesis, solar energy is converted by green plants into chemical energy which creates the biomass that makes up the fossil fuels.
Thermal storage systems can store solar energy in the form of heat by using common materials with high specific heat such as stone, earth, and water. Solar energy can be stored also in molten salts.
