Using Solar Power in Day to Day Life

 

Solar energy is simply energy obtained from the sun this type of energy has been used over the time since the ancient times it was used to dry or cook and simply maintaining the heat.Nowadays the solar energy power is used to generate  heat  in remote areas where other sources of energy  cannot be able to produce the  energy.

 

Solar energy is used in space and it is also used  in other methods of  mechanism  since it is less costly  compared to coal and oil. Solar energy can also be used to cook food since it can be able to trap the light energy from the sun and convert it into heat energy that is used to cook.

 

There are many uses for solar energy this includes  generating the electricity  it  can generate electricity by  storing the energy in solar cells or even the use of heat engines. Converting the solar radiation to direct electricity is how the solar cells work while the heat engine converts the heat energy to mechanical energy that generates the electricity.  Read more about solar power at this site.

 

The solar energy passes through earth's atmosphere as a  solar radiation which reaches  to us as light energy the light energy is consumed by the plants and converted into chemical energy at the end of the day we end up consuming this type of energy through various means you can  consume the energy as  food or by burning  the plants as wood to generate heat. You may go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_energy to read more about solar power.

 

Generation of electricity has been made easier by the many means of electric generations that have been invented  these include  two main types of electricity generation  methods that have been put into focus these are the  photovoltaic and the concentrated solar power  the concentrated solar power converts light energy by having to use lenses that  focus huge spaces of light into a small team while  the photovoltaic use  photoelectric effect on generating electricity.

When cooking you have to  look for the cheapest means of cooking  and  Solar cookers are cheap means of cooking unlike the use of other fuels like gas and  coal this method of cooking uses solar energy to generate heat which is then used to heat the food  there are different ways to make the solar cookers this depends on the type of fluids you want to be used they  can be either liquid or air.

 

Solar energy is also utilized by solar cell the solar cell converts  the light energy to electric energy this type of energy is used in areas that are remote and can't afford the  normal type of energy, this type of energy is also used in items that don't require a lot of energy but need the energy to sustain them like  calculators  and wrist watches.
