Solar power is energy from the sun. "Solar" is
the Latin word for "sun" and it's a powerful
source of energy. Without it, there will be no
life. Solar energy is considered as a serious
source of energy for many years because of the
vast amounts of energy that is made freely
available, if harnessed by modern technology.

Passive Solar Energy
Passive solar energy refers to the harnessing of
the sun's energy without the use of mechanical
devices. Using south-facing windows to provide
natural lighting and heat for your home are
examples of passive solar energy.
Advantages of Passive Solar Energy
Passive Solar Heating Passive Cooling Daylighting

Active Solar Energy
8
Active Solar Energy
Active solar energy uses mechanical devices in
the collection, storage, and distribution of
solar energy for your home. For example, in
active solar energy water heating systems, pumps
are used to circulate water through the system.
Advantages of Active Solar Energy
Active Solar Space Heating Active Solar Water
Heating Active Solar Pool Heating

Solar Thermal Energy
10
Solar Thermal Energy
Solar thermal energy is the energy created by
converting solar energy into heat.
Advantages of Solar Thermal Energy
Solar Pool Heating Solar Water Heating Solar
Space Heating Solar Thermal Cooling
11
Photovoltaic Solar Power
12
Photovoltaic Solar Power
Photovoltaic solar power is the energy created by
converting solar energy into electricity using
photovoltaic solar cells.
Advantages of Photovoltaic Solar Power

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP)
14
Concentrating Solar Power (CSP)
Concentrating solar power is a type of solar
thermal energy that is used to generate solar
power electricity.
Advantages of Concentrating Solar Power
Arid non farming land can be used to create
electricity. Concentrated Solar Power uses less
land than flat panel solar power. Avoids
variability of future energy prices.
