What is the one thing that both industrial and developing nations have in common? They have sunlight in common. Industrial nations use power at alarming rates. Solar power is a renewable source of energy that would help them stop using up non-renewable sources of energy and in turn reduce costs. Developing nations need sources of power that they can harness to develop! Solar energy is clean energy. There is no pollution that enters the atmosphere from solar energy.

There are three types of solar energy; passive, active and solar thermalPassive has to do with building or home orientation, glazed windows, and requires no specialized equipment. Active is the most common and requires use of solar panels or shingles, converters and batteries. Solar Thermal energy involves heating water, for example, heating a swimming pool.

Solar panels collect the sun’s light and turn it into DC power (Direct Current). Next the DC power goes to an inverter and becomes AC power (Alternating Current).  If you are grid-tied or off-grid, the result is the same. If you own a stand-alone off-grid system then you can keep the lights on until you run out of AC current, likely stored in a battery somewhere on your property. If you are on-grid or grid-tied then if you happen to use more power than your solar panels were able to provide for you, your system will kick over to draw power from the grid until your solar system can replenish. This difference is typically measured by a net meter, i.e. the net difference between what you use from the grid and what you supply to the grid in the form of excess solar energy from your solar system.
