We have always used the energy of
the sun as far back as humans have
existed on this planet. As far back
as 5,000 years ago, people
"worshipped" the sun. Ra, the
sun-god, who was considered the
first king of Egypt. In Mesopotamia,
the sun-god Shamash was a major
deity and was equated with justice.
In Greece there were two sun
deities, Apollo and Helios. The
influence of the sun also appears in
other religions - Zoroastrianism,
Mithraism, Roman religion, Hinduism,
Buddhism, the Druids of England, the
Aztecs of Mexico, the Incas of Peru,
and many Native American tribes.
know today, that the sun is simply our nearest
star. Without it, life would not exist on our
planet. We use the sun's energy every day in
many different ways.
Our sun is a gigantic nuclear fusion reactor to be burned in every second 564 million tons of hydrogen into helium ". The solar radiation striking the earth returns in the year consumes more than 200,000 billion kWh of energy and thus something 3,000 times more energy than the entire world population. We contribute our part in order to harness some of this energy.
When we hang laundry outside to dry in the sun,
we are using the sun's heat to do work - drying

No matter how you do the economics, the best
time to install any solar hot water system
is 5 years ago. Given that this is not
usually possible; any time from then up to
the present day- and even a little bit into
the future- is a good second best. Every
household uses different amounts of hot
water. How much you will save on your
electricity bill by using solar hot water
heating will depend on how you use the
system, the size of your system and where
you live. As a rule of thumb, you can expect
to save up to 75% of your hot water bill by
using solar energy.
