Solar Energy


  • from the sun.
  • solar energy forms through photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into electricity.
  • Solar power is captured when energy from the sun and is converted into electricity or used to heat air and water or other fluids.
  • Charles Fritts built the first genuine solar cell with an efficiency rate between 1% to 2% and John Ericsson invented and recreated a solar engine that used parabolic trough construction
  • adding a anti-reflective coating to the panel. So more energy is absorbed and not let out
