Solar Power

Burning at about 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit on its surface, and 28 million degrees Fahrenheit at its core, the sun is a self-sustaining and reliable producer of immense energy. The idea of capturing this energy and converting it into electricity has led to a long series of scientific innovations since the “photovoltaic effect” was first discovered in the mid 1800s.
