Energy from the sun is abundant and provides an unending source of heat and light. It has been revered by many cultures and has even been worshiped as a God. But why harness solar power?
The sun certainly is an abundant and limitless source of power and has numerous merits for using the energy that it provides.
The dawn of each day starts the process of solar energy being released by the sun which is filtered through our atmosphere providing light and helping to radiate heat. This has been happening for millions of years yet it is only recently that we have begun to capitalize on this abundant source of almost infinite power.
In the past the Greeks and the Egyptians have been known to harness the power of the sun to heat whatever they wished to by concentrating its radiation.
