Edition 10: March 2022
March is Women's History Month!
Climate People celebrated by sponsoring VertueLab’s annual Bada** Women Entrepreneurs event.
This was the fifth year that they gathered a group of inspiring entrepreneurs to dive into their journeys. These incredible women discussed their career paths, challenges, triumphs, and the resources they couldn’t do without.
VertueLab has countless incredible resources to help aspiring and established climate entrepreneurs join the fight. Check them out below.

Dose of Optimism

According to the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, every hour the sun emits enough energy to power the world for an entire year.
Photovoltaic solar panels, more commonly known as solar panels, generate power by absorbing energy from sunlight and converting it into electricity.
Inspired by Nicole Kelner’s artwork, we can see that sunlight is made up of tons of energy packets, called photons. These photos collide with the semiconductors on solar panels.
The panels are made up of individual cells that create an electric field. When the photon strikes the cell it frees some electrons that create an electric current that flows through a circuit created by positive and negative fields (similar to a battery).
The electricity created by the cells is then multiplied by the number of cells in each panel and the number of panels in each solar array. When added all together, PV solar arrays create a sufficient amount of electricity. Panels can be added to homes and businesses to sustainably create a renewable source of energy.
Companies like Arcadia, SunRun, Lumen Energy, Aurora Solar, etc., are improving infrastructure and the overall landscape to allow for greater solar energy adoption.
