World Sun Day or International Sun Day, is observed annually on May 3. It was established in 1978 by US President Jimmy Carter. Originally a United States observance, it is now celebrated in many countries around the world.
Significance of International Sun Day
Sun Day was created to promote solar power. The term “solar power” refers to the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity. One of its main benefits is that it doesn’t lead to any harmful emissions during operation. Modern solar power plants use one of two technologies, either photovitalic systems or concentrated solar power.
