Solar Power: Is It Worth the Energy? With the end of fossil fuels now definitely in sight, we need to find a new major and long-term source of energy.
Power from the Sun: Solar, Hydro and Wind Dennis Silverman U. C. Irvine Physics and Astronomy Solar Power Most of all energy we use comes or has come from the sun.
