The sun is the most powerful source of energy our planet has. Without the energy and heat it produces there would be absolutely no life on Earth. The sun’s core holds a temperature of 27 million degrees Fahrenheit and its surface is 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. It provides us with 173,000 terawatts of solar energy, totaling to more than 10,000 times of the world’s total energy use. Wow! This energy can power our homes, minimize our bills, and most importantly help combat climate change.
