While daylight hours are in shorter supply throughout the winter months, solar energy has never been more popular in Florida’s new construction projects. The sun is our world’s most powerful energy source, fueling our planet with each particle of sunlight. This energy is a clean, renewable resource that will surely be a huge player in the future of global energy. Florida, as the sunshine state, is an ideal location to incorporate solar renewable energy components into businesses and homes, whether during the design or retrofitting a building. Harnessing solar energy can be done in a variety of ways, such as commercial solar panel installations. Solar panels convert solar energy into usable electricity through a process known as the photovoltaic effect. This allows the electricity to be used immediately or stored in a solar battery. Buildings may also install solar batteries and solar heating systems, for environmental implications as well as economic considerations. Leading commercial corporations like Google and Microsoft have plans to achieve 24/7 carbon-free energy for their operations within the next 10 years. If other businesses, both big and small, follow suit, there will be a major environmental improvement on a global scale.
