AbstractElectricity is a world wide know source of made light. Electricity is a form of energy that is produced by the movement of electrons. Another way of receiving electricity would be solar electricity. Only recently, in the last two decades, have many people taken advantage of the sun's light and energy to build or install solar products.Solar products are more beneficial to the earth and can save you money in the long run. Solar products include a variety of options like solar panels, photovoltaic systems, solar water heaters, etc. In Manila, Philippines, electricity and solar was both put to use in making a solar bottle bulb. These solar bottle bulbs are starting to become a popular installation. Since the houses in places in the Philippines are located so close together, “they have no windows or natural light.” We wanted to do a project on solar and compare the difference between solar and regular electricity. In this project, we are going to be testing a regular lightbulb and a solar bottle bulb, that we will be creating. We are going compare and see whether a regular lightbulb or a solar bottle bulb is brighter, at the different times of day. We will be finding the average brightness of the solar bottle bulb and compare the results to the regular light bulb. We wanted compare the two because solar energy can be very useful and can save people a lot of money.We wanted to figure out if a solar bottle bulb was brighter than a regular light bulb when the sun is out. Our hypothesis, if we build a solar bottle bulb and compare the brightness to a regular bulb, then the solar bottle bulb will be brighter at times when the sun is out because the sun is brighter than a regular light bulb, in the end was proven. The bottle bulb was brighter and shined more luminously compares to the regular which was dimmer during the brighter times of the day. To do this we uses several materials a water/soda bottle, 1’x1’ roof sheet material, purified water, chlorine/bleach,...
