  • Solar Energy: The Development Of Renewable Energy

    “I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy to wait until oil and coal run out, before we tackle that” (Thomas Edison). Coal was developed in the mid 19 century, since then all used energy was renewable. The United States designed a graph of energy use up until 1990. It shows how gas, oil, and natural gas had the same importance in 1900 as played by solar and wind in 2010. In 1873, experiments with solar energy began to happen because the concerns of running out of coal were brought up. During…

  • Solar Energy System Advantages And Disadvantages

    “photovoltaic” combines two terms – “photo” means light and “voltaic” means voltage. A photovoltaic system in this discussion uses photovoltaic cells to directly convert sunlight into electricity. A photovoltaic (PV), or solar electric system, is made up of several photovoltaic solar cells. An individual PV cell is usually small, typically producing about 1 or 2 watts of power. To boost the power output of PV cells, they are connected together to form larger units called modules. Modules, in…
