As the energy from the sun comes to us, light in the form of photons, and heat radiation is either scattered, reflected, transmitted, or absorbed. Part of this energy is absorbed by the earth's atmosphere and about 35 percent is reflected back into space. Parts of the energy spectrum that are blocked from us are very harmful like ultra violet (UV). Fortunately, almost all UV light is blocked by our atmosphere. The way in which the sun's energy reacts with materials is integral to the way in which electricity is produced via photovoltaic panels and solar thermal.
