Solar Energy

Energy For Now and the Future

Solar Energy Starts with the Sun

Solar energy is a renewable energy source we get from the sun. This energy has been used for thousands of years but recently new methods have been developed to harness this energy produced by the sun. We use sun's energy for heating things like our homes and water and we also use it to create electricity by using solar panels.

We Need Solar Energy

Solar Energy Is a renewable clean energy source that is available in a large supply thanks to the sun. This energy source is so important because currently we rely heavily on non-renewable resources like oil and gas which will run out soon. Also many non renewable resources are harmful to the environment and should no longer be used. instead a clean, green energy source like solar energy can be used to generate electricity to power our homes, business and communities.
