The sun gives out energy because there is hydrogen fusion going on inside it. The great heat and pressure of the sun permits the conversion of hydrogen to helium.

Solar power can mean two things. Electricity is produced by collecting sunlight on solar cells which convert light into electricity. This is done by using solar panels, which are large flat panels made up of many individual solar cells. It is most often used in remote locations, although it is becoming more popular in urban areas as well. For more Information, see related links. The other process uses the sun's heat to warm water for use in a house.
