"Solar energy is more than just PV arrays on a roof. Learn about different types of photovoltaic (PV) technologies as well as passive solar design, and concentrated solar thermal (making power at the level of a conventional power plant!). Find out the key technological, environmental, and economic issues and what it would take to employ solar energy to greatly decrease our reliability on fossil fuels. Students will use the Western U.S. as a case study."
