Welcome to Acting Solar, a site dedicated to educating the general population about the benefits of using solar energy in and around their home. Understanding solar is the first step to acting solar!
We aim to get you the best advice possible on real information on renewable energy from the sun.
We will also aim, to try and answer as many question that you may have on different solar energy platforms, panels, systems and products. Where possible we may even describe other renewable energy products available on the market.
Types of Solar Power
The energy of the sun can be used in a range of ways, but the key is to understand the the types of solar energy. There are two main types of solar energy that you should be aware of:
Solar thermal energy is usually collected through the means of water or a glycol mixture. It’s not usually used in the home.
Solar Photovoltaic Energy
This is the main form of use at home solar products, where you capture the suns radiation and convert it into electricity that is then stored in PV cells.
Our vision for a clean, solar-powered world has led us to provide solar panels for a broad range of applications. From satellites, telecommunications, water pumps, remote houses and safety signals, to grid-tied homes, businesses and large solar farms.
Nearly three decades and countless innovations later, we have studied global leadera in solar panels, providing the systems to power more homes and businesses than any other solar manufacturer in the world.
Our view is to find the best solar panels available and give consumers information on how to pick the right panels.
