This web page provides free access to Saved By the Sun, a 53-minute video produced by NOVA that explores how solar energy is being used to power homes, businesses, and entire communities. It takes a realistic view of solar power -- both its promises and challenges -- and the hope it holds for powering the future. The movie is supplemented by additional resources, including an interactive trip inside a photovoltaic cell and a look at new solar technologies.
