Solar energy is the energy that is produced by the sun and harnessed by solar panels. The solar panels are photovoltaic cells that convert the sun’s energy into electricity. This electricity can power homes and businesses and be fed back into the power grid. Solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source, meaning that it does not produce greenhouse gas emissions or pollutants and is available in abundant supply. It is considered one of the most important renewable energy sources as it doesn’t emit harmful pollutants, and it’s infinitely renewable. It can be used for various applications, including electricity generation, heating, and cooling.
