SOLAR ENERGY

Solar energy is heat energy that comes from the sun. Solar-heat panels concentrate the sun’s heat to warm water and create power. Solar power helps save other sources of energy, such as oil, gas, and other fuels. Solar panels collect the sun’s heat and change it to useful energy. A solar heater is made up of large dark glass panels or materials placed on a roof. These panels trap the sun’s warmth to heat water. The panels help save fuel by using the heat energy from the sun.
