"We're physically part of the sun. The sun gives us energy, creates our world."
Leveraging the power of solar energy can lead to reducing our impact on the environment, gaining energy independence, and reducing utility costs. Although solar energy is a big part of recent renewable energy conversations, solar energy technology is more established than you might think. In 1954, Bell Laboratories built the first silicon solar cell, the predecessor to all solar-powered devices. The New York Times described the milestone "the beginning of a new era, leading eventually to the realization of one of mankind's most cherished dreams--the harnessing of the almost limitless energy of the sun for the uses of civilization."
Going solar doesn't need to feel complicated. You can even join a co-op!
