This is a interesting source of energy.Can solar cells provide enough energy for a car?

Atila - Solar Power Expert

Solar power is everywhere and it is growing everyday. We can use it for in many ways. This is another great example :)

An excellent application for solar powered lights is twilight lights used in landscape lighting.

Solar saves on power (of course) and installation (no wiring etc)

The power of solar energy is massively underestimated and written off for many people. I think it should become an aspect of everybodies home, started with solar powered outdoor lighting for example.
