Summary

Along with geothermal energy, solar energy is now one of the least environmentally disruptive sources of power by which electricity is generated today. Sunlight is a free, unlimited resource that hits the Earth with more energy in an hour than the people of the world use in a year. In Solar Power, readers will discover how scientists are trying to harness this power and explore potential developments into the future.
