First Solar - Creating more U.S. jobs
Solar power is the generation of electricity from sunlight. This can be direct conversion as with photovoltaics (PV), or indirect conversion as with concentrating solar power (CSP), where the sun's energy is focused to boil water (or other fluid) which is then used to provide power. Solar power had the potential to provide over 1,000 times the total world energy consumption in 2008, though it provided 0.02% of the total that year. If it continues to double in use every two to three years,it would become the dominant energy source this century.
