Generating electricity from solar power is one of the first methods one thinks of when the subject is solar energy. PV-cells, also called photovoltaic cells, is the technology that uses so called doped silicon, which again can generate electricity from the rays that emit from the sun.

Solar energy is very often used in buildings such as green houses. By using the same principle, it is very possible to save some money by doing simple steps in your own house. Solar energy can also be directed against a small point, thus stronger intensity, and be used for simple cooking devices. This is very common in some places in Africa, where electricity is scarce.

With a solar battery charger you can easily store electricity for later use. It is now also possible to sell electricity back to the grid if you produce more energy by solar power for homes techniques than what you actually consume. Some people even disconnects completely from the grid.

Solar energy or solar power is a green type of energy. At times like this, when we are facing a great challenge in getting the environment sustainable for later generations, we need all help we can get.
