Anne Fischer, Managing Editor, Solar Novus Today recently wrote and article regarding how solar lighting brings safety to remote communities.
The sun is a direct source of energy. Using renewable energy technologies, we can convert that solar energy into electricity. Solar powered lighting is a relatively simple concept. In a basic way, the system operates like a bank account. Withdrawals from the battery to power the light source must be compensated for by commensurate deposits of energy from the solar panels. As long as the system is designed so deposits exceed withdrawals on an average daily basis, the battery remains charged and light source is reliably powered.
