Research This Topic

Since the word "solar" means from the sun, solar energy is the energy that comes to us from the sun as light energy. The sun's energy is transformed into heat as its strikes the land, sea or any object. The heat produced by the sun drives the world's weather systems including wind, rain and river flow. We rely on energy from the sun for our warmth, food, wind and water. We simply could not live on the earth without it!
