SOLAR ENERGY,, I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that. – Thomas Alva Edison, 1931
It is a quantity that is often understood as the ability to do work.
Energy sources can be recognized as: Renewable Energy Sources Non Renewable Energy Source
SOLAR ENERGY Energy of sunlight used to provide electricity, to heat or cool homes, businesses or industries. Harnessed by humans since ancient times
Advantages… The power source of the sun is absolutely free. The production of solar energy produces no pollution. The technological advancements in solar energy systems have made them extremely cost effective. Most systems do not require any maintenance during their lifespan, which means you never have to put money into them. Most systems have a life span of 30 to 40 years.
Disadvantages….. The primary disadvantage to solar energy is the upfront cost. Once installed, you can expect next to nothing on the system during the 40-year life span… Solar energy can only be harnessed when it is daytime and sunny

Installing solar panels in Maine •Earth Day — April 22 — marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. • And today the NRCM (Natural Resources Council of Maine) is celebrating the one-year anniversary. •NRCM’s solar array has produced 15,000 Kilowatt-hours in its first year. • NRCM expects to save $32,000 over life of project.
President Carter inspecting a solar heating panel installed on the roof of the White House. Discovery Guides ProQuest Released December 2008 •A solar water heater was installed in the White House, and photovoltaic panels first came into play, notably in California • While previously solar power as a direct source of electricity had been limited to esoteric functions, spacecraft, companies began to form with the idea of using solar as a regular source of power for ordinary homes.
According to Greenpeace, The solar radiation reaching the earth‘s surface in one year provides more than 10,000 times the world‘s yearly energy needs. Yet the technological barriers to harvesting this energy are great re-garding collection, distribution, and storage.
GREEN BUILDING •Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources •Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity •Reducing waste, pollution and environmen tal degradation
Solar homes Any home uses freely available energy from the sun for heating,cooling,ventilating & power generation called solar home.
MEASURES OF SOLAR HOMES High cost or cost intensive measures. Low cost or cost effective measures. No cost measures.
