The Sun Day
The Sun Day, created under the United Nations Environment Program, aims to alert to the benefits of the sun and its importance as a source of energy.
The production of electricity using the sun is possible through photovoltaic solar panels or solar thermal panels. The Sun can also be used to heat domestic water or industrial processes, avoiding the use of electricity or gas.
* Although the Day of the Sun is celebrated on May 3, due to incompatibility of agendas, it was decided to hold this event on 23.
