This might sound stupid, but if your home is powered COMPLETELY by solar or wind energy, no electricity at all, then do you still use light switches to turn the power on? So, when you turn on a switch, rather than the power coming through an electrical current, it comes from a build-up of the solar energy from the panels on the roof which have been stored, and can be used when needed? I’m new at all this, and I’ve been trying to find books to give me the answers, but I can’t find anything straightforward enough and Google is NOT helpful.
Please, can someone just explain this to me in the simplest way possible? HOW does solar power work and how can we use it? Solar, wind, whatever…I really want to know!
Thanks for your help.
