Solar Thermal Energy (STE) is a relatively new technology enabling us to convert solar energy into usable heat, through a process of capturing the sun's ultraviolet rays and converting them into measurable output. It's also sometimes known as solar thermal heat (STH) to differentiate it from photovoltaic electricity. Solar thermal energy can be used in residential applications for heating water, cooking, and home heating. It can also be put to use in multiple commercial applications.
