Abstract: This report investigates the applications of solar energy in buildings and households. Study of various energy sources and their impact on the environment explores the leading reasons for development of solar cells and portrays humans’ thirst for more efficient technologies. After extensive literary and quantitative reviews, the values in using solar energy have been revealed. Solar cells have been around for many years. Once the solar panels are installed on the building, the usage becomes simple. However, usage of solar energy is not limited to solar panels. Solar energy can be used to produce solar electricity, heating, cooling, and lighting. This energy source can be integrated onto the building during construction to ease the usage. This report emphasizes the main applications of solar energy at buildings and highlights the different methods to take advantage of this renewable source of energy.
