Industries are using solar energy to manufacture solar-powered vehicles.

NASA has successfully developed an airplane that can function entirely on solar energy.

How does the renewable solar energy work? Majority of the devices that are powered by solar energy use the photovoltaic cells, which produce electricity as soon as they are exposed to sun rays. These cells consist of panels which comprise of two layers and these layers become positively and negatively charged, once the sunlight falls on them. This leads to the production of electric current, which can be connected to the main supply of your house, and used to run your electric devices like computers, phones and blenders.

The amount of electricity produced depends on the size of the solar panel, strong sun rays and length of exposure to sun rays.
