There is some initial investment, but my guess is that if you are reading this, you are already interested in solar energy for its environmental benefits and not strictly for its capacity to save you money. There is also good reason to support solar energy standards in our country. Here are some easy ways that you can go solar:

The Price of Sunshine gets Lower

The Price of Sunshine gets Lower

Solar energy currently provides only a quarter of a percent of the planet’s electricity supply, but the industry is growing at staggering speed. Underlying this growth is a phenomenon that solar’s supporters call Swanson’s law, in imitation of Moore’s law of transistor cost. Moore’s law suggests that the size of transistors (and also their cost) [...]

How Does a Solar Panel Work?

How Does a Solar Panel Work?

Solar panels convert light from the sun into electrical energy. The main part of the solar panel is the solar cell, which is often called the photovoltaic cell. Photovoltaic cells are arranged within a grid-like pattern and placed on the solar panel. The purpose of these cells is to collect sunlight in the daytime. Compiled [...]
