Solar power has been all over the news recently. Coverage ranges from the Biden administration’s import tariff to agrivoltaic farming to solar-powered cryptomining to the prevalence of electric vehicles (EVs) relying on panels to charge.

Check out our infographic to find answers to your questions. We explain how solar cells, panels and inverters work; the current state of U.S. solar capacity and growth; and what the future holds for an industry showing no signs of slowing down.
