        NOVA scienceNOW: Solar Panels for Your Home

        Learn about photovoltaics and see how two families are using solar technologies in their homes in this video segment adapted from NOVA. First, an animation illustrates the process within solar panels that transforms sunlight into electricity. Then meet Phil Reavis, Jr., who explains his interest in solar energy and the environment, and how his family was able to install solar panels on the roof of their house to produce electricity. In addition, tour the custom-designed home of Bill and Debbie Lord, which uses both solar electricity panels and solar hot water panels, and learn about state incentives and net metering benefits.

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
