Solar Energy Facts

Solar Energy for home use has two main areas of focus, Therno solar which is focused on providing hot water for your home and Photovoltaic (PV) technology for generating electricity. Why would you use both of these and not just use the PV electricity to heat your water? The reason is that the solar water heater is far more efficient and can be effective with less sunlight while electric hot water heaters consume a significant amount of electricity. In some cases having both will make sense and in others you might just use one of the other and well explore why.
