Sun Energy and Solar Electric Power

Early Discovery and Innovation
In 1839 French physicist Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel discovered that an electrical charge resulted from the absorption of sunlight by a conductive material. American inventor Charles Fritts used Becquerel’s discovery to create the first solar cell in 1883. Research and development in solar cell technology increased after the launch of the Soviet Sputnik […]

Ontario’s Solar Power Potential

The sun provides a steady stream of solar photovoltaic and solar thermal energy on the earth every day. Solar cell photovoltaic power generates clean renewable electricity to supply a distributed generation electrical GRID or your Off-GRID electricity requirements. Solar power technology is improving rapidly as did computer hardware and software over the past three […]
