PV technology exploits the most abundant source
of free power from the Sun and has the potential
to meet almost all of mankind’s energy needs.
Unlike other sources of energy, PV has a negligible
environmental footprint, can be deployed almost
anywhere and utilises existing technologies and
manufacturing processes, making it cheap and
efficient to implement.

“PV
technology
exploits a
virtually
limitless
source of
free power
from the
sun.”
