-Sunlight is a renewable energy source which can be converted light energy into electric energy by solar panels.
-Solar power is energy from the sun.. Solar energy has been looked upon as a serious source of energy for many years because of the vast amounts of energy that are made freely available, if we use our modern technology. More Information about solar energy

the surface of the earth receives 120,000 terawatts of solar radiation (sunlight) – 20,000 times more power than what is needed to supply the entire world.

Advantages of Solar Energy
( How it works)
disks that convert sunlight into
Photovoltaic solar cells are thin silicon
Solar doesn’t work at night
Ongoing Free Energy
In the solar cells, the bonds [between
silicon atoms] are made of electrons that are shared between all of the
atoms of the crystal. The light gets
using solar energy is that beyond initial installation and maintenance, solar energy is free.
Solar doesn’t require expensive and ongoing raw materials like oil or coal, and requires significantly lower operational labor than conventional power production. 2.
Keeps Our Climate Livable
up to a higher energy level and can
it does not emit any green house gases.
Solar energy is produced by conducting the sun’s radiation – a process void of any smoke, gas, or other chemical byproduct.
was bound. That electron can then move
Because solar doesn’t rely on constantly mining raw materials, it doesn’t result in the destruction of forests and ecosystems that occurs with many fossil fuel operations. 3.
Power density, or watt per square meter (W/m²), is essential when looking at how much power can be derived from a certain area of real estate of an energy source.
However, currently, widespread solar panel efficiency – how much of the sun’s energy a solar panel can convert into electrical energy – is at around
