Really quickly! Did you know, that according to research, renewable energy is the FASTEST-growing energy source in the US? And solar energy is projected to climb from 11 percent of total United States renewable generation in 2018 to 48 by the year 2050! That will make renewable energy the fastest-growing electricity source in history.
According to National Geographic, harnessing solar power is a thorough technique. In one way, “long troughs of U-shaped mirrors focus sunlight on a pipe of oil that runs through the middle. The hot oil then boils water for electricity generation.”
A second technique used in harnessing solar energy uses mirrors… This technique utilizes what we in the business, call moveable mirrors, and they focus the sun’s magnificent rays on a collector tower; that is where the receiver sits. “Molten salt flowing through the receiver is heated then, to run a generator.”
It’s amazing what we, as humans, can do with the power of the sun. National Geographic also states that solar energy has surged at about 20 percent a year over the past 15 years, and the great United States, along with Germany and even Japan are major markets for solar cells.
Our team cannot wait to learn the percent that solar energy will grow in the next 15-20 years.
