Solar energy can be used for electricity production, heating water and drying clothes. You can even cook food with solar energy.
Solar energy can also be used to heat swimming pools, power cars and produces lighting for indoors or outdoors.
Solar Energy is measured in kilowatt-hour. 1 kilowatt-hour (kWh) = the amount of electricity to burn a 100 watt light bulb for 10 hours.
A 1 kilowatt solar system will generate 1,600 kilowatt hours per year in a sunny climate and 750 kilowatt hours in a cloudy climate.
