The purpose of the Solar Museum is to showcase the history and educate people on how solar energy works. We are developing a traveling exhibit to showcase our collection of solar cells as well as interactive exhibits that show of the history as well as the science. We are currently in progress of developing our exhibits so if you have something that you’d like to see drop us a note and we’d love to hear from you.
We plan to have exhibits available for rent or purchase depending on your needs. We will have available solar cells from every decade from the 1950s to present. As well as demonstrations on how solar car works with a real solar race car, how solar cells work and how light changes the performance of them as well as taking a look at them under a microscope. After seeing the exhibit people will have a better understanding of how solar photovoltaics got their start and how they work. This is a one of a kind exhibit on solar energy and may inspire more people to look at renewable energy.
Solar energy demonstrations and activities will also be available for purchase such as creating your own solar car or desktop fan.
