How Solar Cells Work

In recent years, small devices, such as the calculator and the kitchen timer that previously ran on batteries, have been transformed. Instead of relying on external power sources, they can now function on natural energy from the sun. As long as enough light is present, these devices can potentially work forever. Larger solar panels, more […]

How Do You Measure Solar?

Solar energy comes from the Sun, the medium-sized star in the center of our planetary system. It fuels all the life processes on our planet. Essentially, all forms of natural power come from the sun. Plants soak up solar energy through photosynthesis and the Earth’s energy cycle begins. Capturing and manipulating solar power is a […]
