Solar Environmental Facts

Pollution is a detriment to our environment, it affects our water, the air we breathe & our food supply. Fossil fuels like gas, coal & oil are not renewable energy sources, meaning once they are gone they cannot be replenished. When these fossil fuels run out we will have to find alternative methods of generating energy to sustain life as we know it. These fuels are also expensive to retrieve from the earth and require ‘dirty’ processes to be extracted from ground and transform them into mediums that make them useful. The process of burning fossil fuels creates bi-products that harm the life they are intended to sustain.


Solar energy is energy that is derived from the sun & converted into electricity. It is a versatile source of renewable energy that can be used in a number of applications, providing power for everything from cars to boats to houses & spacecrafts. Solar power is also clean & pollution-free.

Solar is not a new concept, with fossil fuels running out, the cost of living going up and the economy struggling, solar has become a point of interest. Energy from the sun is converted into solar power using solar collectors, most commonly known as solar panels. Solar panels consist of solar cells designed to capture energy from the sun. Photoelectric applications use photovoltaic cells to actively convert energy from the sun into electricity. Solar panels used to heat air and liquid (such as solar pool heating) are passive and different from those used to provide and generate electricity. The photovoltaic cells used to produce electricity are considered low maintenance and well suited to remote applications. They use semiconductors like silicon to convert energy from the sun into usable electricity for homes and businesses.
