The Solar Basics


Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity, using the energy of speeding photons to create an electrical current within a solar panel.

Solar Technologies®, explains how energy from the sun can be transformed into sustainable electricity. They provide links and resources for more information on solar technology.

Over the past several decades, scientists have been learning to harness this ancient energy source with more efficiency to do the work of non-renewable fuels – without pollution, noise or radiation, and not subject to economic whims that drive costs higher each year.
