With Green Products, it starts with Solar Energy. We will be constantly updating things as we find them. Though Solar is a great place to start.
First of all, this is one of the hottest “Green” topics of all time. Using the power of the Sun to power life and to do it without the huge power costs we have all been accustomed too. This is so good you can even make money from it.
Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, molten salt power plants and artificial photosynthesis.
It is an important source of renewable energy and its technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on how they capture and distribute solar energy or convert it into solar power. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic systems, concentrated solar power and solar water heating to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light-dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

Not looking to get Solar installed by a company? Looking to do it yourself… then you will want this information! Plus BONUS info for creating a Solar Powered Water Heater. Easier than you would think!
Solar stirling engine is a mechanical device working on the stirling principle. It is one of the devices which produces energy from renewable resources. Robert Stirling was the Scottish inventor of the closed cycle air engine, stirling engine in the year 1816.
How are solar stirling plants different from solar panels?
Solar stirling plant consists of paraboloid(3D shape of parabola) , with a sterling engine at the focal point of the parabolic dish. The parabolic dish consists of curved mirrors. The parabolic mirror concentrates the solar rays striking the surface at the hot-end of the stirling engine. The stirling engine converts the solar energy to electrical energy.
Solar panels consist of solar cells. Solar cells use the energy of the incident photons to eject the electrons from the semiconductor surface in a process called photoelectric effect to produce energy.
