ABSTRACT
The article explores some of the basic characteristics of alternative solar conversion systems in order to demonstrate the inherent relative promise and limitations of different systems. Solar energy supplies only about 4% of the energy consumed in the U.S. The sun's use in photosynthesis and in the evaporation of seawater to provide rain and the immensity of the solar energy resource are offered. The article also discusses the design of solar storage systems, the possibility of low cost space heating, and the approaches to wind power.
