      Fab question Khayala, I don’t think we cna get more energy from the sun, whatever it gives out is a fix amount, but we can try and harvest the energy and store it. Solar panels are an example, we can convey the energy into an accumulator that then releases it to heat the water. We cannot be 100% efficient but as the energy from the sun is free, whatever we can convert and store is great! I hope this helps!
