Solar Energy

Solar energy is very efficient. Solar panels convert 22 percent of the energy they get to electrical power. It was founded by Alexandre Edmond Becquerel. He founded it in the year 1829. It is converted by exciting electrons in silicon cells using the photons of light from the sun. This energy converted is used to light houses and towns. It is being used the most in the U.S.A. The three cities it is most used in are Los Angeles, San Diego, and Phoenix. Three advantages of using this type of energy are that it is free, does not cause any pollution, and can be used in remote areas. A fun fact about solar energy is that it is a renewable resource.
