How Residential Solar Energy Works [Infographic]

Harness The Sun for Energy Efficiency

Solar energy is an outstanding renewable resource you can use to generate electricity as long as the sun continues to shine. In return, this means that using the sun is an excellent way to cut your electricity bill. By taking advantage of the sunlight, you no longer will have to rely on your local electric grid- racking up your costs.

There’s no question as to why solar energy continues to thrive as the world’s fastest-growing energy source. As it continues to grow, eventually solar energy will reduce how much we have to rely on coal power for electricity altogether. States like New Mexico are already beginning to pass clean energy legislation, illustrating how far renewable energy has come.

If you’re looking to learn more about how solar power can heat up your pool or jacuzzi, turn on the lights for your home, and spin your fans to keep you cool, have a look at this infographic about harnessing solar energy for efficiency by The Zebra.
