Sun is the creator and nurtures life on Earth. For millions of years, it has continuously supported the flora, fauna, and human beings. But do we utilize its energy efficiently? No. We cannot realize the hidden potential of solar energy, until we start to use it for our everyday purposes. It is high time because slowly we are bound to run out of the non-renewable sources of energy. Sooner or later, we will face an energy crisis. What is the solution? The sun can be the best answer to all such questions. The sun is a renewable source of energy. The sun release energy in the form of sunlight that it sheds on Earth. To use solar energy, we should harness this sunlight and convert it into electricity. There is a challenge. The research regarding solar energy is slightly limited and the technology is still developing. But it is only bound to get better and more user-friendly once we decide to devote ourselves to this cause. For this purpose, our approach has to change. We should stop looking at solar energy as unusual or inefficient. There are technical problems like the installation and maintenance of the solar panels, the costs involved, and the proper use. But innovations are on.
One such bright example of innovation is the Solar Window designed by Yugin Che, Lee Yu Jun, and Kin Jun Se. It was named the Window Multi-Plug. It is armed with heat panels, which can tap the solar energy. It can thus provide energy to the appliances like microwave, toaster, and teakettle, etc. If you look at the picture of the Window Multi-Plug, you shall observe that there are plugs attached to the bottom of the window. These are to be connected to the appliance you wish to charge or run. Solar energy can also be stored by this Solar Window. If you want to make still better use of this Solar Window, ensure that your house is insulated. Furthermore, it will be better if you install this gadget on a window that faces the South. This will ensure that you get the most exposure to Sun. In the winters, however, you may switch back to your old energy source, if you want. Overall, the Solar Window looks good and is easy to use. The more the number of Solar Windows, the more energy you will tap. Today, it may seem a small thing. But in the long run, you will end up saving a lot on your electricity bills.
