The formal official name of the sun is "Sol". Anything related to the sun or associated with it

is a "solar" thing.

That's why we have a "solar system" of astronomical bodies, "solar radiation" that comes from

the sun and heats the earth, "solar panels" that use this radiation to generate electricity or to

heat water, "solar ovens" that cook with sunshine, etc.
