t's crazy that in the 21st Century, we're still running on non-renewable power that muddies the skies and gut-punches the planet. What's even crazier is that we have a giant star — a super-powerful nuclear fusion reactor — hanging out only a few billion miles away. The sun emits more than enough energy to power human civilization, but solar panels have been slow to evolve, and have a reputation for being...ahem...devastatingly ugly.
Well, not anymore! Solar tech is undergoing a futuristic makeover across the world, as innovators, artists, and engineers design new ways to integrate clean energy into our lives. Check out our favorite examples of new solar designs — it's time to look on the sunny side of this exciting field!
