As solar energy becomes more cost effective, the need for solar technicians will increase. Solar power is unlimited and can supply energy to heat water, power streetlights, and air condition and heat residences and commercial buildings.
Though some geographic areas are more optimally suited for solar energy, due to the ubiquitous presence of sunlight, any area can potentially benefit from it. Photovoltaic solar panels convert sunlight directly into electricity. A number of these panels are arranged on a solar panel to form an array. The relatively high cost of manufacturing and installing solar panels has been responsible for the limited use of solar energy until now, but as technology and production efficiency improve, costs will plummet and the use of solar energy will continue to expand.
