15 Jul: The History Of Solar Technology: How It All Started

Solar power has a long history that dates back to the late 1830s when French physicist, Edmond Becquerel, first discovered that, under the right conditions, light can produce electrical current through a process called the photovoltaic effect. From there, further technological advancements continued and by the 1860s another French scientist,…
