What is Solar Energy? How is Solar Energy Used? It is energy from the
Sun! When the sun's rays reach the earth they produce heat and sunlight.
Sunlight grows plants and provides light for humans and animals to
see. The sun's rays also warm the earth so life can flourish.
But solar power energy can also be used to warm your home, warm your bath water, light your home and even cool your home. And it can do this without producing any greenhouse gases that pollute your water or the air you breathe. It can also reduce those monthly energy bills that are not getting any cheaper. And it will not contribute to global warming. So how do we get solar energy?
