Humans have long harnessed the radiant light and heat of the sun. As a source of clean, renewable and inexhaustible energy, it is hard to find an alternative to solar power. On the sun-drenched island of Timor-Leste, solar power makes both economic and environmental sense. UNICEF supports the use of solar energy by providing solar panels to health clinics throughout the country.
