Solar Power

   Solar Power is the conversion of sunlight into energy. It either directly photovoltaics (PV) or indirectly using concentrated solar power (CSP). CSP uses lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. PV converts light into electric current by using the photoelectric effect.

  1. Your solar power system, though, isn’t going to move around. What is going to be important is having as large a capacity as you can. For this reason, cost per amp/hour of capacity is a lot more critical than being small or light.

    missing massive amounts of information (I gave you a piece of paper with questions that needed to be answered)
