As finally it is solar energy ,water make up the body needs ,can we not research on a kind of ANTENA --Receiving mechanism for the contact with solar energy & live ?? either supplementing food or even substitute it fully ? Huh

Solar power is a viable green energy source. However it is not a viable energy source for our power needs. At the moment the only alternative we have is Fusion Power, until we achieve it we just have to sit tight and make the best use possible of our current resources.

Solar energy is a renewable and free source of energy. Unlike fossil fuels which are finite, solar energy is sustainable as it is not inexhaustible. It is also a non-polluting source of energy and it does not emit any greenhouse gases when producing electricity.

Going solar has been simplified by use of a small low cost Grid Tie Inverter (GTI).

No batteries are needed which eliminates all the maintenance hassles and lifetime limits that come with batteries.

The small, inexpensive Ebay purchased GTIs ("Power Jack" is one company) are easy to set up. It's just two wires to connect and then you simply plug it in to any wall outlet.

The best one to start with is the 300W model. Some call it a 250W, like the "Sun 250W GTI". They are mostly all the same.

You can add more solar panels and expand as you wish. Adding, "stacking" more and more 300W GTIs as you go. Search YouTube for lots of videos of people doing this.

There are electrical limits you should be aware of just like any plug in appliance, you can't overload your house circuits. So just be aware of that when approaching 1000W output.

A number of people have installed a dedicated electrical circuit for solar panel systems that are 1000W and over, just to be safe.

The small GTI's are configured and built just like any normal off the shelf AC power inverter or even like a PC Power Supply, they come in a metal box with a heat sink and a temperature controlled fan. The internal CPU keeps it from overloading or putting out power when the grid is down.

They are fused for safety on both the AC side and the DC solar input side and include a ground lug for further protective grounding if you like.

Once you hook it up you can forget about it. Every day it will come on in the morning and start producing power, then turn off at night. It will supplement the electrical grid power you use all the time, lowering your electric bill.

Larger systems can turn your power meter backwards, accumulating power "credits" for later use.

Nothing could be easier!

If you are willing to do a little weekend work by mounting your own panels, solar panels have been seen selling for as little as 75 cents per watt! (at the time of this post)

people are talking about solar energy, no one say about solar cell, and other solar equipments which are more expensive.

Hi..
I agree tyson..

We can harness the power of sun which is unlimited and use that energy to fulfill our needs. That energy is solar energy. Electricity which is one of the most important and demanding need of our day to day life could also be generated with the help of solar energy. That's why converting the solar power into electricity is high on the political agenda in many countries. It is the domestic energy which is non-polluting unlike the fossil fuels.
