Solar and hydropower electricity are changing the world faster than we think. These energies are proving to be the cleanest and with new innovations in technology they are also proving to be cost effective. Solar panels have become much cheaper in just the last four years and new innovations in photovoltaic cells allow some home owners to install solar glass windows. Hydro-power works by using water turbines and solar works by converting DC electric into AC power.
- Solar and hydroelectric energies are new clean forms of energy being used more and more.
- Hydroelectric energy harnesses the energy in bodies of water like streams or even the tides.
- Solar energy uses solar panels to capture energy from the sun, often placed on the roof.
“The current produced is collected by wiring the solar panels with wire in series to form a solar photovoltaic array.”
