    Solar Power - Insolation Converted Into Energy

    The demand for renewable energy technology is increasing, not only in the UK but world-wide. In the area of power production people are looking for alternative possibilities. In accordance photovoltaic and solar thermal systems, which serve to convert solar energy into power, are receiving heightened attention.

    The term ‘Solar Energy’ usually refers to the conversion of sunlight (insolation) into useable power. Areas with particularly high insolation rates have a greater potential for the production of solar power. With modern solar technology such as photovoltaics and other various solar concentrating thermal technologies, we can make use of the sunlight as a free energy resource to generate clean and renewable energy.

    Solar Energy Installations

    Solar Energy installations are suited for many different locations and are available in many different sizes. Homeowners usually install domestic solar systems on their roofs for on-site-use. Business owners mount commercial solar systems to cover their own energy needs or to sell the solar energy produced.

    Affordable Solar Energy

    The UK solar market is a growing sector. People are becoming increasingly aware of the negative impact fossil fuels have on the environment. The changing climate calls for new and alternative sources of energy which can be realised through solar energy.

    There are far more advantages than disadvantages to solar powered energy consumption. The British government and local authorities try to support the shifting interest with rebates, subsidies and grants, helping to make solar power more accessible and affordable.

    What we already do know about climate change and the environment, tells us that solar energy is one of the most important alternative energy forms for securing energy for the future. Solar energy is a practical, efficient and environment-friendly alternative to traditional energy sources and will only gain significance in the years to come.
