With global warming on the rise, the availability and cost of energy resources has dwindled while the little that is available is too expensive. Global warming has also heightened regulatory measures towards clean energy and consequently, everyone is looking to save on resources and therefore forced to review their energy supplies. In order to cut costs and also have reliable power sources, many individuals are looking for alternate energy resources that are affordable, durable and able to cut down on operational costs, it is due to this reason that we introduce you to SOLAEPOINTS TECHNOLOGY.
Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available, and the U.S. has some of the richest solar resources in the world. Modern technology can harness this energy for a variety of uses, including generating electricity, providing light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial use.
There are several ways to harness solar energy: photovoltaics (also called solar electric), solar heating & cooling, concentrating solar power (typically built at utility-scale), and passive solar.
The first three are active solar systems, which use mechanical or electrical devices that convert the sun's heat or light to another form of usable energy. Passive solar buildings are designed and oriented to collect, store, and distribute the heat energy from sunlight to maintain the comfort of the occupants without the use of moving parts or electronics.
Solar energy is a flexible energy technology: solar power plants can be built as distributed generation (located at or near the point of use) or as a central-station, utility-scale solar power plant (similar to traditional power plants). Some utility-scale solar plants can store the energy they produce for use after the sun sets.
