What is the future of solar power?
Let’s talk about all three concepts today.

Solar is the use of technology which harnesses the sun’s light to create energy.
Most commonly solar can be utilized as an energy and heating source for homes, business, boats and even automobiles.
The panel is the building block for harnessing and creating energy.
The first type of grid is on-grid or grid tied solar. The on-grid system relies on sharing of power with the on-grid electrical system.
Power sharing allows for efficient transition from the electric, the nuclear power plants to solar.
The on-grid system could be a first step to a transition to sustainable go green, environmental friendly power.
The second type of power is off-grid solar.
Off grid simply means that you are not connected to the mains supply and you are totally reliant on the power that you generate from your solar panel system.
For many, this independence is the real future of solar power as it provides them with their own power generation solution.
The third type of energy is hybrid solar.
Hybrid solar combines concepts from both off-grid and on-grid solar to create power and is an area of ongoing research and development.
This type of system also combines other green power solutions such as wind power and hydro electric power, both of which are developing for use in residential and small scale systems.
The future of solar is really beginning to happen as people become more and more aware of environmental needs and where their energy comes from.
Solar energy is a reliable source of green power which is becoming more common across the world, both in countries that have well developed power systems and in others where power generation is not as well provisioned.
After production, solar is a clean and long term solution that generates no pollution or greenhouse gases.
With the development of easy to install do it yourself solar power kits, it is becoming easier and very cost effective for home and business owners to setup their own solar generation plants.
The ongoing cost savings of generating your own power are also considerable and an advantage to us all.
