Solar power 03/21/16
Let one consider this. The earth receives around 3.86*1026joules of energy hits the Earth every second. The Earth directly receives1.74*1017of those joules. This number is over 35,000 times the amount of energy that all of human civilization consumes every second. If we are able to receive this much energy from the sun, wouldn’t it be logical to create a system to harness this energy? This is where Solar Power comes in. Solar power uses Solar panels which in take the energy of the sun and uses the photoelectric effect to transform this into usable energy. Most commercial solar panels have an efficiency rating of 15-20 percent, so research in to higher efficiency solar power is paramount.
