At the Solar Galaxy, we envision a carbon-free energy system by 2050. We aim to facilitate the smart transition to a clean and modern energy future through education, research, standards, and collaboration. The SEPApower blog is one of many avenues that we use to share industry leading content and perspectives that move this important conversation forward. In addition to solar, our blog content focuses on our four pathways: Grid Integration, Regulatory Innovation, Utility Business Models and Transportation Electrification.
Solar cells can be used to generate electricity from sunlight. It is a device that converts light energy into electrical energy. Sometimes the term solar cell is reserved for devices intended specifically to capture energy from sunlight, while the term photovoltaic cell is used when the light source is unspecified.
Solar cells have many applications. They have long been used in situations where electrical power from the grid is unavailable, such as in remote area power systems, Earth-orbiting satellites and space probes, consumer systems, e.g. handheld calculators or wrist watches, remote radiotelephones and water pumping applications. A large no. of solar cells are combined in an arrangement called solar cell panel that can deliver enough electricity for practical use. Electricity produced by solar panels can be stored in rechargeable solar batteries, which is then drawn upon when required

They also ended up with the highest score on Social Media Popularity, with 41.82 points out of 100. Besides providing high-quality solar products, Solar Galaxy is committed to raising awareness about solar energy through their blog by covering topics in the following categories: Solar Technology, Giving Back, Company, Going Solar, Powering the World, Solar Policy, and Being Green & Saving Green. They publish approximately three times a month and are active on various social media platforms
The Sun may be used to heat water instead of electricity or gas. There are two basic types of active solar heating systems based on the type of fluid — either liquid or air — that is heated in the solar energy collectors. (The collector is the device in which a fluid is heated by the Sun.)
Liquid-based systems heat water or an antifreeze solution in a “hydronic” collector, whereas air-based systems heat air in an “air collector.” Both air and liquid systems can supplement forced air systems.
