Solar energy is a resource that is not only sustainable for energy consumption, it is indefinitely renewable (at least until the sun runs out in billions of years). Solar power can be used to generate electricity and various other applications.
• Solar Energy originates with the thermonuclear fusion reactions occurring in the sun.
• It represents the entire electromagnetic radiation (visible light, infrared, ultraviolet, x-rays, and radio waves).
• The Earth’s surface receives about 47% of the total solar energy that reaches the Earth. This energy is an ultimate resource for Renewable energy
