Most of us know that it's the closest Ground Power Generator Review star to the Earth at some 93,000,000 miles. It rotates once in 27 days and is now considered middle aged. Since it's been up there performing for us for 4.5 billion years, we may rest peacefully in the knowledge that it has about another 5 billion years of juice left in it! Not likely to burn out in our lifetimes, I think. The surface of the Sun is named the photosphere, and the temperature of this is about 10,000 degrees fahrenheit. But it becomes hotter still the closer to core we go. At the very middle it rises to a terrifying 27 million degrees fahrenheit. Now by any standard, that's hot. So why not use some of that heat, which our minds can't really comprehend, to use here on earth? When all's said and done, heat is energy after all. At the very basic level, on sunny days, a method of storing this heat and converting it to solar electricity is eminently possible. A whole house may be made to run on solar electricity. Those who can afford such a luxury are able to pay professionals large sums of money to convert their residences into such havens of grid-free luxury. However, for those of us who's pockets aren't so deep, in my case virtually sewn up, there are other solutions to the problems of creating such energy. A good place to start is your local hardware store. You'd be surprised what they're selling now by way of equipment for the do-it-yourselfer in such endeavours.
