What is Solar Energy?

The sun powers natural cycles on earth like the wind, water flow and plant growth. But the sun is also such a reliable source of heat and light that we sometimes take it for granted. Generations have used glass and other materials and structures to capture and magnify the sun’s energy and these systems have gradually evolved to form the basis of mature techniques that are used today to harness solar energy.

Active Solar Heating is one of the primary ways for buildings to use solar energy. This technology uses solar collectors to transform solar energy iinto heat to provide space and/or water heating. Solar water heating is the most common application of active solar thermal in Europe. A correctly sized solar water heating system can cover 50-60% of your hot water heating requirement with free solar energy.
