What’s the most efficient way to make electricity from solar power on a large scale? Is it using Photovoltaic cells, or mirros and a turbine or what? I’d be interested in a web site that compares all the options by efficiency, cost, reliability in cloudy weather, and stuff like that.
Here is a great question from one of our readers.
I’m an engineering student and for an individual hobby-like project i purchased a small solar panel and a small solar motor. I am planning on making a small solar powered toy car. The question I have is: is there a way to connect a control or some other ways of regulating the power that is absorbed by the cells? Other wise the motor will just continue to run. Any answer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
