5 Things you Don't Know about Solar Power

Solar Central Tower TechnologySolar Thermal Technology of Central Tower
Solar Thermal Technology:In california -Mojave Desert,Largest solar energy project from solar thermal technology can lights up 140,000 homes,These solar plant was designed using Solar thermal technology called Central Solar Tower Technology using 350,000 mirrors concentrating onto a boiler producing a tremendous heat to boil the water or liquid .When water boils which inturn create pressure and it turns turbine and the water send to stream condenser and pushed back to boiler,Thus creates electricity from the generator coupled with the turbine shaft.This project can provide a clean,renewa
ble energy solar energy.

The New York Times

The New York Times said on the development of first solar powered devices by Bell Laboratories in 1954 on April 26,1954 issue"The beginning of a new era, leading eventually to the realization of one of mankind’s most cherished dreams -- the harnessing of the almost limitless energy of the sun for the uses of civilization.”Was it wonderful news.....?

solar powered satellite
Space Technology adapts Solar:The space industry was an early adopter of solar technology. In the 1960s the space industry began to use solar power technology to provide power for spacecrafts. The Vanguard 1-the first artificial earth satellite powered by solar cells-remains the oldest manmade satellite in orbit -logging more than 6 billion miles. The satellite has travel around 196,990 revolutions of the Earth in the past 50 years,equivalent to the distance from Earth to beyond the planet Pluto and halfway back.

Solar energy from sun

Solar energy: Solar Power received from the sun is about 173,000 terawatts strikes continuously. That's more than 10,000 times the world's total energy use.Sunlight takes about 8.3 minutes to reach the Earth. On average, it takes energy between 10,000 and 170,000 years to leave the sun's interior and then be emitted from the surface as light.

Medicinal Light:The body produces Vitamin D from sunlight (to be specific, from the UVB band of UV light), and excessive seclusion from the sun can lead to deficiency unless adequate amounts are obtained through diet.A lack of sunlight  is considered one of the primary Disorder called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a serious form of the "winter blues".
