DOE's New Solar Energy Technologies Program Web Site Shines!

DOE is shedding new light on its Solar Energy Technologies Program with a new Web site that highlights the program's many research and development activities. The program, one of 11 energy programs in the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), has generated a new Web site that provides easy access to information about photovoltaic solar power, solar heating, solar lighting, and concentrating solar power. The Web site reflects the look of the EERE Web site, and it provides the latest news about the program and about solar energy in general. It currently features a section on solar electricity for consumers, which includes detailed information to help homeowners and businesses generate their own power from solar electric panels. See the Solar Energy Technologies Program Web site.
