With the growing use of solar energy, the modern designs have also incorporated wireless technology and fuzzy control for managing the batteries in an environment-friendly, non-expensive method.

FREMONT, CA: Solar power has multiple uses apart from the particular usage in solar farms. There are PV arrays, and thermal heating systems, which use solar energy to can serve and function.

Here are a few well-liked and conventional solar systems:

Air Conditioning:

AC can be operated by solar power via passive solar, thermal energy, and PV. One of the critical uses for solar AC is because of its function inside zero energy and very low-carbon buildings. A solar PV is the most common technology used for solar cooling and can be utilized for small residential as well as commercial cooling systems. Nonetheless, solar AC is becoming rampant in the marketplace with its 3-in-1 technology that includes solar cooling, hot water, and heating.


A solar hybrid hot air balloon is covered in a layer of dark material, which enables solar radiation to heat the air inside to give it a lift. They can be made of both solar power and a conventional propane burner and uses black-colored material panels on each side of the hemisphere. The panel facing the sun collects the heat while the other metallic layer traps the heat inside it.


Solar chimneys are used in buildings to enhance ventilation with the help of the convection currents formed by air heated by the sun. Consumers need to place the chimney higher than the roof level on the side of the house that faces the sun. A larger surface area brings more efficiency. It can be set up into an overall low carbon building design, including glass-block walls, thermal mass walls, and stainless steel round exhausts.

Trash-Compacting Bins:

A trash-compacting bin utilizes a 12-volt battery with a solar panel for charging with a chain-driven mechanism without hydraulic fluid. A few units are prepared with wireless technology that transmits data to a dashboard for waste management tracking.


It heats, cooks, or pasteurizes food under direct sunlight. Many organizations worldwide have started to promote their use to minimize carbon emissions and fuel costs. Solar cooking is primarily carried out outdoors, and devices take different forms, including curved concentrator cookers, solar ovens, and panel cookers.
