Guide to Solar Energy Systems – From Homes to Transportation and Beyond

Helios Flying Wing - Courtesy NASASolar energy systems—systems utilizing solar power—are increasing in scope and in efficiency. Once very limited, solar devices now charge calculators, cellular phones, and iPods. Solar devices cook food. They heat and cool homes. It is even possible to drive to work by means of a solar-powered automobile. Governmental restrictions may at times impede the development of solar power, but it is expected growth will increase for solar power applications, especially in the larger nations, and in view of consumer demand. Your Bright Hub reporters are glad to keep you informed of developments in the use of solar energy systems.
