Why was Einstein awarded the Nobel Prize in physics?

Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his 1905 paper on the photo-electric effect, in which light hitting a metal surface could generate electricity. This was the theoretical basis for all of the solar power collectors that you see everywhere.
