a technology that converts sunlight (solar radiation) into direct current electricity using semiconductors. When the sun hits the semiconductor within the PV cell, electrons are freed and form an electric current. 

Pros

The sun is free fuel that is available anywhere on the planet.

Cons

Does not produce electricity when the sun isn't out.

Real Talk

PV should be ubiquitous.
