First look at Canada’s largest solar farm

CBC News: The National in Canada shows that construction is underway on a $750-million solar farm project in Vulcan County, Alta., which promises to provide an economic boost and electricity to power 100,000 homes. There is also hope it will inspire similar farms in the region, which has 320 sunny days each year.

  1. It seems that solar energy is the energy generated by the sun and radiated through space, mostly as visible and near-infrared light. It sustains nearly all so-called life on Earth. When sunlight strikes a surface on our planet, thermal energy, also called heat, is produced.

    Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of technologies such as solar water heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, molten so-called salt power plants and artificial photosynthesis. It is an essential source of renewable energy.

    A solar cell panel, solar electric panel, photo-voltaic (PV) module or just solar panel is an assembly of photo-voltaic cells mounted in a framework for installation. Solar panels use sunlight as a great source of energy to generate direct current electricity. A collection of PV modules is called a PV panel, and a system of PV panels is called an array. Arrays of a photovoltaic system supply solar electricity to various electrical equipment.
