What is Solar?
Solar Photovoltaic (or PV) is a technology that converts sunlight into direct current electricity by using semiconductors 3. In contrast, Solar Thermal is a technology that utilizes the heat energy from the sun for heating or electricity production
Solar is a renewable resource and does not emit any greenhouse gases in the energy generation process. However, the cost of solar in relation to other fuel sources is a barrier to adoption. Additionally, sunlight varies depending on geographic location, season, and time of day, which all creates limitations on its use.
