Solar Photovoltaics

Harnessing the Power of the Sun to Create Electricity

The same fiery ball that arches overhead day after day is also an excellent source of clean, renewable energy that can provide heat, light, hot water and electricity to homes and businesses.   Solar Photovoltaics or "PV" cells, convert sunlight directly into electricity through the use of semiconductors.   These are the cells that often power calculators and watches. On a larger scale, they can provide electricity to homes and add power to the electric grid.
