The world heavily relies on using coal, natural gases and oil for its energy; the global economy is strongly dependent on nonrenewable fossil fuels as an energy source. These fuels are a finite source of energy that will eventually decrease, become too costly and largely play a damaging role to the environment. Looking for a better permanent solution, renewable energy sources such as wind, hydro and solar are the wave of clean renewable energy for the future. These resources are abundant in our everyday lives; renewable energy such as wind and solar are never ending and is constantly be replenished. This paper will examine the solar sector of renewables, which is currently growing rapidly. Solar energy can be a key player in providing the future with a source of clean renewable energy.
