Ways to use Solar Energy - Cooper

Solar energy is a energy powered by the sun. There are multiple ways we can save energy in our school using the sun to save electricity. We can input solar panels to use the Suns energy, then we can take out some of the lights in our school. We can use solar cells to help produce the energy. Or we can put in Windows so the Suns light will come through the window to give us light.
