Generate your own electricity. Go solar!  Solar energy is environmentally friendly and will reduce your reliance on energy from the utility company.  Every hour the sun beams onto Earth more than enough energy needed to satisfy global energy for an entire year. Solar energy is the technology used to harness the sun's energy and make it usable. According to the Energy Information Administration, in 2019 Solar Energy accounted for 1.8% or 72 Billion kWh electricity generation (Energy Information Administration, 2020).

The sun is a clean, free, and readily available renewable energy source. Solar generating plants come in a variety of shapes and sizes.  A solar power plant converts sunlight into electricity, and there are two different types of solar power plants: photovoltaic and solar thermal.

  1.  Photovoltaic power plants receive photons from sunlight hitting a semiconductor material creating free electrons which flow through the material producing direct electrical current (DC).  The direct current is then converted to alternating current (AC) using an inverter before it can be made available to the electric grid.

  2. Solar thermal power plants collect sunlight through solar parabolic dishes, which concentrate the sunlight levels.  A parabolic dish reflects the sunlight increasing the sunlight level 20 – 100 times that of the normal sunlight.  This method is used to heat a specific fluid creating high-pressure, superheated steam.  The superheated steam spins a turbine to generate electricity, which is AC (McFadden, 2018).
