From the energy dark ages to modern day solar
Historically, the sun has been worshipped by cultures the world over for its role as a fountain of life and energy. Despite lacking the scientific instruments to make sense of the gear work behind how our giant ball of gas powers the planet, they understood what modern science has now demonstrated - all energy on Earth originates from the sun.
Fortunately, advances in modern science and engineering have allowed us to harness the sun’s kinetic potential to power our homes, businesses, satellites, and more - without having to resort to rituals and rain dances!
Solar energy has become the go-to solution for the staggering number of people who have grown dissatisfied with the rising rates, unreliable infrastructure, and disastrous environmental impact of conventional energy sources.
In recent years the green revolution has taken wing with renewable technologies offering an alternative solutions to their fossil-based competitors.
As a result, it's unlikely that the world's interest in
non-renewables will ever be renewed.
As technology evolves, so does our energy sources. But as long as older technology remains, you will always have the choice whether to use the best solution for powering your home or an inferior one.
Let's look at the antiquated technology from which solar progressed.
