4C- The Evolution of Solar Energy from the Photoelectric Effect to 3 Cent Power

Phillip Consiglio

Senior Manager
Southern California Edison

I would like to do a presentation that outlines the history of solar energy from the first demonstration of the photoelectric effect in 1921 to the highly efficient solar technologies of today. We have gone from the theory of generating electricity directly from sunlight to 3 cent power that is now competitive with fossil fuel generation. I will also discuss the utility grid and the importance of incorporating of energy storage in the future.
