We recently had a solar panel system installed. Our organization will not only be promoting sustainability, we will also be saving a lot of resources in the long term!

What Are Photovoltaics?

Photovoltaics is the direct conversion of light into electricity at the atomic level. Some materials exhibit a property known as the photoelectric effect that causes them to absorb photons of light and release electrons. When these free electrons are captured, an electric current results that can be used as electricity.
