Summary
"The sun provides lots of energy, most of which isn't used by plants or animals. How can we harness solar energy to create electricity? This book introduces students to how solar energy is produced and how it is used as an energy source that provides power for essentials and luxuries that they use every day. Graphics help explain the process of harvesting solar energy. After explaining what the resource is and how it is used, the book covers the pros and cons of using solar energy. Environmental impacts factor into the discussion of solar energy harvesting and use, as well as accessibility and renewability of solar energy."--
