Most of the gadgets we use today require some sort of power source in order to work. Most of them use electric energy but this only increases the demand for fossil fuel based power providers which in turn significantly increases pollution to the environment. Solar power is more sustainable and cleaner and more and more people are opting to mount solar panels on their houses and businesses. Here are some of the world’s best solar powered gadgets that will make life easier without polluting the environment

Though not available commercially, solar powered vehicles work by converting sun energy to electricity. The electricity is then used to fuel the battery that runs the car.
