Queensland state has a lot of for solar energy in Australia. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Sunshine State is leading the market and has always had more solar energy than anywhere else in Australia — the landscape and environmentally friendly tend to have go hand in hand.
As we all know, the closest star to Earth is the magnificent Sun, and we’ve been utilising it to improve our quality of life since the beginning of time. It’s been used to tell time, help our crops grow, and in the last two centuries, it’s been harnessed into electricity. Alexandre Edmond Becquerel first discovered that certain materials generate a current when exposed to sunlight in 1839. The PV (photovoltaic – “photo” meaning light, and “voltaic” meaning voltage production) silicon solar cell was patented in 1954 by scientists of Bell Laboratory, which produced electricity as it was exposed to sunlight.
