Solar Energy History
Early History of Solar Power
Solar energy history lets us know that solar power technology isn't really new. It has been around for a very long time in one form or another. In fact, the earliest known record of people using solar power goes all the way back to to the 7th Century B.C.
Here is a short summary of how solar energy has been used in both ancient and modern times.
Solar Energy Developments in the 20th Century
Potential Future Developments
What can we look for in the coming years in regards to solar energy?
Passive solar energy could be incorporated into every home, school, and commercial building built from the ground up by installing windows and walls facing the right direction and slanted correctly in order to take the greatest advantage of sunlight.
Research will continue into making photovoltaic cells more powerful and hopefully find ways to make the equipment required to install solar energy systems more affordable for both homeowners and businesses.
