Solar Power

The use of sunlight to create electricity is becoming increasingly popular as more and more people look to cut costs and become environmentally aware. Solar power converts sunlight into electricity and is used to power small devices as well as entire homes today. Solar power can be created through photovoltaics (PV) – a method that converts solar radiation into electricity using solar panels. U.S. utilities are becoming a key driver of future growth. According to a new study on Solar Power by GTM Research, Utility PV in the U.S., a $1 billion market in 2010, is projected to reach $8 billion by 2015. Concentrated solar power (CSP) can also create electricity by using lenses or mirrors to focus a beam of sunlight and create heat to a source that’s also connected to a power generator.
