Really Dumb



Solar energy is energy created by the sun. It is a renewable energy source, meaning it will never run out. It is also clean energy, meaning it does not produce any pollution when it is used. The sun’s energy is converted into electricity by photovoltaic (PV) cells, which are placed on rooftops or in solar farms. An analogy to help you understand solar energy is like a tree. The sun is like the tree’s leaves, which take in the sunlight and convert it into energy. That energy is then stored in the tree’s trunk, branches, and leaves, just like solar energy is stored in solar panels. Some fun facts about solar energy are: -More than 2 million homes in the US use solar energy. -Solar energy is one of the fastest growing sources of electricity in the world. -On average, solar panels can last for up to 25 years.
