Of course it is. The energy in the solar energy is just as real as other types of energy - and it is actually energy.

What types of energy can be transformed into electricity?

Three types? I can think of more than that. But I suppose if we group some together: there is mechanical energy, solar energy, wind energy, hydro energy. Thermal energy in a power station is transformed into mechanical energy so is covered by that. But then both wind energy and hydro energy convert to mechanical before the electricity is produced. So really at a fundamental level there seems only mechanical and solar. Mechanical would include fossil fuels, (coal, oil, natural gas,), nuclear, wind, incinerators, hydro, geothermal, and biomass, which all drive a mechanical device to produce the electricity. Solar produces electricity directly from photovoltaic cells so that is not mechanical.
