Solar Tech Simplified

If you've ever wondered about -- or been required to learn -- the basics of solar technology, you're in the right spot. Looking at many explanations, you'll find a lot of jargon to unpack: cell, panels, arrays, monocrystalline, polycrystalline, PV, and so on. It can sound intimidating at first, but with just a little study, you'll be well on your way to understanding all things solar.

To get started on the actual nuts and bolts of solar energy, check out the Technology page and read up on the most common types of cells and what they're made of. After that, the Past, Present, and Future pages will give you an idea of where solar energy has been, is now, and will be. Finally, visit Resources to do more in-depth research.
