Why is hydroelectricity called indirect solar energy?
Asked by akankshyasahu | 8th Jan, 2010, 06:12: PM
Movement of the wind (which causes waves at sea), and the evaporation of water to form rainfall, which accumulates in rivers and lakes, are also powered by the Sun. Therefore, hydroelectric power and wind and wave power are forms of indirect solar energy.
