What are the applications of solar power in our daily life?
Solar electricity can be used in virtually any application where electricity is required, from powering simple household electrical items to running entire cities. However, because solar electricity is generated only when the sun shines it is used to cover daytime power use. With timers this could include dishwashers, washing machines, dryers, robotic vacuum cleaners, swimming pool pumps and electric heaters.
With the arrival of solar storage there is an opportunity to install extra panels to charge up lithium batteries for power use at night. Batteries at the moment are too expensive to get a suitable ROI. However, prices are dropping fast while capacity is increasing so battery storage will soon be part of the solar solution for household.
