Why Do I Need a Solar Inverter?

Why Do I Need a Solar Inverter?

A solar panel absorbs energy from sun rays and converts the same into direct current (DC). The electronic and electric appliances we use at our homes runs on alternating current (AC). Therefore the power generated in the form of DC needs to be converted into AC to run our home appliances. Solar Inverter is a device which converts DC into AC and makes the power generated by the solar panels useable in our home appliances.

Nuclear Power – Alternate Energy Source

Nuclear Power – Alternate Energy Source

The use of atomic energy is an alternate source of energy has vast potential. Normally nuclear reactor runs fantastic rate of 80% efficiency. Like all other sources of energy, there are residue materials for nuclear reactors too. The disposal of residue is the core area of concern for preservationists. It emits radioactive rays for very long period and therefore proper disposal is necessary. 50% of the power requirements of 5 states of United States are met using nuclear reactors.
