Solar Energy
Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available.
Modern technology can harness thissunflower energy for a variety of uses, including generating electricity, providing light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic or commercial use. Help preserve our energy reserves and reduce CO2 emissions by using a solar thermal system for your pool or home water heater.

Photovoltaics is the direct conversion of light into electricity at the atomic level. Some materials exhibit a property known as the photoelectric effect that causes them to absorb photons of light and release electrons. When these free electrons are captured, electric current results that can be used as electricity.

Thermal Energy
Thermal energy is the energy that is generated and measured by heat. Because thermal energy is due to the movement of particles, it is a type of kinetic energy, which is the energy due to motion. Thermal energy can capture the warmth of the sun and transfer that heat to water.
