Solar energy

Hey fellow HEthens :)

I have a school projekt about solar energy and I have been wondering how it actually works. Like how do you transform the warmth from the sun into useable energy? :)

I suggest a trip to the library. There you will find all the info you need. In general it is not the warmth of the sun, but the photons exciting electrons that flow to make electricity. They flow better if it’s warm though. The weakness is the need for batteries to store the energy. Some places the power corp will buy your excess production.
