Solar Power

Solar power converts light and heat from the sun into electricity. The sun is the origin of virtually all of the world’s energy. It powers the winds used to generate wind power.[1] And it is the necessary ingredient in photosynthesis which drives the generation of materials for biomass and biofuel energy.[2]
