Distributed Solar


The sun bathes the earth in a steady, enormous flow of radiant energy, providing a continuous supply of energy, making it the earth's most abundant source of renewable energy. There are two different approaches to harnessing energy from the sun: photovoltaic (PV) and solar-thermal technologies. ACE NY focuses on clean electricity, and thus on PV.


The ultimate source of much of the world's energy is the sun, which provides the earth with light, heat, and radiation. Many technologies ultimately derive fuel from one form of solar energy or another.
