The sun has been with us since the world was created. It has helped plants grow by providing energy for the process of photosynthesis to occur. Photosynthesis is the way plants convert inorganic resources, such as sunlight, water, carbon dioxide, and minerals, into organic resources that the plant can use. The sun makes farming possible. It brings life to our farms and allows us to grow crops.
The sun does not stop there. It also gives us energy. We get energy through the use of photo-voltaic solar cells which convert light energy into electricity. Solar energy has enabled us to light our homes, heat water and the most important…it allows us to pump water.
