How solar panels harvest solar energy

  • Every hour, enough sunlight shines on the earth to power the entire planet with solar energy for one year.1

  • Thanks to declining technology costs, supportive policies like the Inflation Reduction Act, and increasing demand for renewable energy, there are over 135 gigawatts of installed solar capacity in the US.2

  • That’s enough to power 24 million households with clean energy,3 harnessed by solar panels that work like this.
