These panels are a technological marvel and are a great addition to a home. If the utility bill is ever too costly then these panels will allow for some “free” energy also. Another way that solar power can be collected is through the use of solar farms. Solar farms are usually many acres large and are normally in deserts. On solar farms many solar panels or solar mirrors are placed around, and facing, a center boiler pylon. The pylon acts as a steam engine would, but instead of burning fossil fuels to get the water boiling the solar panels or mirrors would heat up the water to a
