The sun is an endless resource, the purest form of energy we have. Tapping its power with solar panels is simple, straightforward and scalable.

In addition, new technology in solar panels, known as "thin film", are starting to gain prominence. Thin film is much cheaper to manufacture than traditional solar panels made from silicon. These two forces, working in tandem, have driven price down.
