Solar Energy

There are many things you can do with solar energy. People have been experimenting with the sun’s energy for a very long time, and we have finally learned to harness it in many ways. Solar panels are very popular for this, but they are by no means the only form of this energy.

The most basic kind of solar energy is heat. This is very easy to recognize when we feel the heat from the sun on our skin. Some of the most basic uses for the sun’s energy involve heating things up. Solar ovens are very popular with some people because of their design that uses the sun’s heat to cook food.

Wind turbines are also harnessing solar energy in a way. Wind is created by the uneven heating of the earth’s surface by the sun, so wind turbines are “solar powered” as well. There are many ways that a solar home can be used in out everyday lives.
