Facts About Solar Energy
Solar Energy can be utilized in several different ways for either a business or home. The most common application is using Solar Energy to heat hot water. Solar water heating works well in supplying domestic hot water for a household or business. This technology can significantly reduce the amount of oil, gas, or electricity you use to heat your water. It is especially fitting for families and businesses that use substantial amounts of hot water, and/or to replace an electric hot water system.

Solar Electricity (also called photovoltaics or PV) is an exciting application of solar energy with many options. Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity which can be used to power the appliances in your home, as well as being fed back into the utility grid.

The maximum benefit from Solar Energy can be realized when one has an open area facing South so as to capture as much sunlight as possible throughout the year.

For the Calendar years 2006-2007, there are exceptional tax credits being offered by the Federal Government, and many states are moving on legislation to further help home owners and businesses make the move to solar energy. Couple this with the fact that fuel and electricity is at an all-time high, there is certainly never been a better time to make the move.
