Solar Energy - Plugging into the Sun

This phot is of photovoltaic panels in Spain... and WOW, it's a really good one!

Today, I discovered this excellent article by National Geographic called "Plugging into the Sun"...

It explains how sunlight provides us with much more energy than we'd ever need - and slowly we're starting to tap into it!

It also reviews the two main ways to harness the energy as well:

    1. produce steam,
    2. convert to electricity with photovoltaic (PV) panels (be sure to check out our PV solutions on our web site to learn more!

Be sure to check out the article, and the related link: Ranking the Renewables (the photo gallery is great too!)

Very cool stuff!
