In a solar power installation in Salt Lake City, Utah, a pair of huge arrays of white panels are stacked high, each holding a thousand watts of power.
The panels are designed to be more than enough to power the city’s 1,400-megawatt solar array, but they also come with a few special features.
The first is a solar panel called the Sunstone that’s meant to protect against the harmful ultraviolet rays that can damage cells and can kill the delicate skin of humans.
Sunstone is made from a metal alloy that has an ultra-low melting point, so it can be used to protect solar panels against UV light and also helps reduce solar flare, a phenomenon in which a solar flare or a solar storm causes the solar panels to be overloaded and explode.
When sunlight hits the metal, it creates a very small amount of solar radiation that can penetrate the metal.
This material absorbs this solar radiation and causes the metal to absorb even more solar radiation.
That’s why it’s so hard to see in sunlight.
But Sunstone does provide some protection against UV rays.
It’s also a material that can absorb some of the harmful solar radiation, so the Sunstones are designed for those kinds of conditions.
“It’s very strong,” says Michael H. Wilt, a professor at the University of Utah’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering.
The Sunstone has a special layer of aluminum oxide that absorbs some of that harmful solar material, making it much stronger.
“The Sunstone was engineered to resist these UV-induced reactions that can cause damage to cells, which would have been harmful,” Wilt explains.
The aluminum oxide is also very hard, so there’s no risk of the aluminum oxide damaging the solar cells.
The solar panels are installed in a large building at the center of Salt Lake.
They’re designed to withstand up to 10,000 sunburns each day.
When the sun goes down, the panels will not only take a beating, but the aluminum will also burn.
The entire process takes about five minutes, and it’s a lot of work, too.
So the company behind the panels, Solar Power Inc., has designed the panels with a special way of protecting the aluminum.
The company says the aluminum coating on the Sun stones can absorb up to 90 percent of UV light before it can damage the cells.
“We can protect the aluminum from UV exposure, and the aluminum does so in a way that we think is really protective,” says Rob Wirth, vice president of business development at Solar Power.
He explains that the coating is made of a thin layer of carbon nanotubes.
These thin carbon layers can absorb ultraviolet light and reflect it back.
The nanotube coating is also made from aluminum oxide.
The coating on these panels absorbs UV light.
It reflects back UV light to the cells, preventing them from being overloaded.
It also protects the aluminum by preventing the aluminum molecules from splitting up, which can damage them.
The metal also has a coating of a carbon oxide layer that helps absorb UV light as well as reflect it.
Wirth explains that while it’s not perfect, the aluminum layer protects the cells well enough that the aluminum is actually “truly UV resistant.”
In fact, the coating on each solar panel is made up of a tiny layer of the metal coating.
That tiny layer has a high resistance to UV radiation, which makes it very durable.
“There’s a pretty good idea that it’s very durable,” Wirth says.
He says that, in general, solar cells are made up a material called polysilicon, which is an alloy of two types of silicon.
In general, the polysilicons are stronger and better able to absorb UV radiation.
The thickness of the silicon in the panels also plays a role.
“You get a little bit of a boost from having the thickness of silicon,” Wirt says.
The silicon on the aluminum has a thicker layer of silicon that’s harder to fracture.
Wurt says that in general there’s a slight improvement in the quality of the materials, which helps.
“But in this case, you get a lot less strength from that thicker silicon,” he says.
Wither says that the polycarbonate coating on Sunstone panels has been tested and found to be 100 percent UV-resistance.
Without the aluminum, Wirth expects the solar panel to last for hundreds of years.
And with the Sun Stone and the Sun Stones array being built in such a way, it’s expected that Solar Power will be able to extend the life of the panels to many thousands of years, Wither said.
Wertile and Wirth say the panels are safe for most people to use, but there’s one concern.
“When the sun is really hot, there’s an issue that’s happening with the aluminum that’s not happening with aluminum oxide, which also acts as a very strong shield,” Wertilet says.
“So the aluminum doesn’t
