Applications For Solar Energy
Solar energy has multiple applications and you can classify these applications under the three types of solar energy i.e. Solar Thermal, Solar Photovoltaic and Passive Solar
Solar Thermal Systems and Applications
Solar heating applications include solar water heating, that use solar panels to harness solar power for solar hot water heating. Solar hot water tanks and solar boilers are much in use today to meet the hot water requirements of a typical UK household.
Another interesting application of solar power is for Solar Pool’ or ‘Solar Swimming Pool’ heating. Solar pool heating is done by using solar power (and collectors and heat exchangers) when it is at its peak radiation level. Though solar swimming pools might also use other ways and means for heating, this is the most common way to go about it.
Solar PV or Solar Electric Systems
Besides solar heating, you can also convert solar energy into solar electricity using solar panels. Home solar electricity can be used for many purposes e.g. for powering small or low power domestic appliances, LED lighting, back-up electricity for domestic use, parking meters, burglar alarm systems, caravan lighting and much more.
Passive solar PV
Passive solar heating applications involve designing the property or homes in such a way so as to maximise the utilisation of solar power. You also have solar air heaters that take the air from outside, raise its temperature and then circulate it inside the house. Besides keeping your home warm, it will also act as a dehumidifier as the air inside the homes is more humid than the passive solar heated air that is circulated inside the house. If you use proper insulation inside the homes, the effectiveness of passive solar is further enhanced.electric cigarettesiranian homevideos
