What is solar power?

The sun has been burning and providing heat and light for thousands of years. The ability to harness this energy from the sun to generate heat or electricity basically is solar power.

This form of energy offers numerous benefits when compared to more traditional forms of power.

Clean Produces no fumes
Quiet Less sound pollution unlike diesel generators
Renewable Unlike coal and other fossil fuels

How can we use the sun’s energy?

Solar energy can be used for potable water or Irrigation (e.g. solar water pumps). Potable water or Irrigation (e.g. solar water pumps)
Solar energy can be used for photovoltaic power (eg. a solar cells). Light or photovoltaic power (eg. a solar cells)

Why use solar power?

Unlike traditional energy sources, the sun produces enough energy each second to sustain our power needs for 500,000 years!

The continuous emission of energy isn’t the only positive aspect of incorporating solar power for your requirements.

Economically sensible There are 0 recurring costs on solar power supply.
Environmentally sustainable Solar power will not run-out like traditional power sources such as fossil fuels.
