How Solar Panel Systems Work

Solar energy is a natural, renewable energy source that contributes to sustainability.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), renewables, particularly solar, will lead new energy capacity additions for the foreseeable future. The IEA notes that Solar photovoltaics (PV) is the lowest-cost option for new electricity generation in most of the world, which is expected to propel investment in the coming years.
