Solar power should be, by all accounts, more popular than it already is. While technically not an infinite resource, the sun will be around long enough to provide plenty of energy. The science behind solar panels is simple and they’re easy to make. It’s only thanks to a select few that solar farms aren’t a […]

The (Surprisingly Simple) Science Behind Solar Panels

A row of solar panels.

Most people are, at the very least, aware of what a solar panel is. By drawing in the preexisting energy given off by the sun, the panels convert that energy into electricity. But not as many know how that process is completed. It’s surprisingly simple, although some of the terminologies are complex. A solar panel […]

Mass Transit Goes Solar

The solar train owned by Byron Bay

One of the greatest sources of energy at our disposal is the sun. While technically finite, it will run out long after human consumption is no longer needed. There’s little processing to be done before it can be utilized, and it results in far less pollution than other energy sources. However, it’s fairly uncommon, with […]
