    From this course I have learnt alot about solar products, from funding, manufacturing and its impacts on our day to day improvements in technology. The growth in manufacturing of these technologies is a sign that in the nearby future solar system will be highly of need and the production figures shall grow high. We have seen China as one of the leading countries in solar products and that this will help alot in growing the industry
