How useful Solar Energy for Commercial and Residential?

How useful Solar Energy for Commercial and Residential? | engineering | Scoop.it

Solar energy is still a largely untapped sustainable resource, which can do away with power crisis all over the world. Only the installation costs are high but one can reap the benefits on a long-term basis after that.

 

High viability of solar energy for remote and far-flung areas has led to government initiatives on a global scale with high tax and other benefits to popularize this mode. Whether for commercial or residential applications one cannot deny the myriad advantages that solar energy brings.

Energy security is a high priority for the military. In fact, energy security is a high priority for just about every aspect of society. Thus, in a bid to make better use of solar energy, scientists at the Naval Research Lab (NRL) are developing a scheme that would capture solar energy in space and beam it directly to Earth.
