As the earth heats up and the price of fossil fuels soars, citizens, scientists and businesses are exploring a clean, renewable source of power: the sun. In an eye-opening report, NOVA shines light on how and why people across the U.S. and the world are “going solar,” using the sun’s energy to power homes, businesses and even whole communities.

But can an individual consumer really make a difference by adopting solar power? And will solar technologies ever make a significant impact on the accelerating energy demands of the global economy? The grand hopes, latest innovations, roiling controversies and practical realities of solar power all come into focus in NOVA Saved by the Sun.

Watch it Tuesday, June 3rd at 8:00 p.m. on KUAT6
