Solar energy travels from the sun to the Earth in rays, but only a small amount of energy reaches Earth.
Solar energy will never run out, which is an advantage for Earth.
To conserve our fossil fuels, some people put solar collectors (solar panels) on their roofs to convert solar energy into electric energy. This energy is one of the most important energy sources.
We use solar energy in many different ways. We use solar energy for electrical , thermal , and light energy for stores , businesses, and homes.
This is solar energy being converted into electricity to power a home.
