Making the world a better place - I'm part of it :)


Philippines, I work here :)

I'm proud to say that I am part of making a world a better place. Why? Because I'm working for a company whose vision is to change the way the world is powered. How? Through the solar cell technology. With this, utilization of fossil fuels, like oil, are reduced through the utilization of sun light.



Sun rays are converted into energy through the use of solar cells. Phtovoltaics is the process of converting sunlight directly into electricity using solar cells.
Research and development of photovoltaics received its first major boost from the space industry in the 1960s which required a power supply separate from "grid" power for satellite applications.
In the 1970s, the world focused its attention on the desirability of alternate energy sources, promoting the investigation of photovoltaics as a means of generating terrestrial power.


In the 1980s research into silicon solar cells paid off and solar cells began to increase their efficiency.

Today solar cells are recognized not only as a means for providing power but also a means of significantly diminishing the impact of environmental damage caused by conventional electricity generation in advanced industrial countries.
How solar cells work:
A solar cell is an electronic device which directly converts sunlight into electricity. This process requires a material in which the absorption of light raises an electron to a higher energy state, and the movement of this higher energy electron from the solar cell into an external circuit.
The basic steps in the operation of a solar cell are:
  • Generation of light-generated carriers
  • Collection of the light-generated carries to generate a current 
  • Generation of a large voltage across the solar cell; and 
  • Dissipation of power in the load and in parasitic resistances

I hope that in the future, these environmental initiatives will spread around the world.
So that our children can still enjoy and experience the beauty of our planet.

  3. thatss very huge amount of solar cell here :D
    I think it can provide more energy to us
