Every day the sun radiates an enormous amount of energy.  The sun radiates more energy in one second than people have used since the beginning of time.  Solar Thermal power is heat energy obtained by exposing a collecting device to the rays of the sun.  A solar thermal system makes use of the warmth absorbed by the collector to heat water or another working fluid, or to make steam.  Hot water is used in homes or commercial buildings and for industrial processes.
