Audio described version


Narrator (N1)

N1: Ever wondered about solar power?

[On-screen visual: Camera pans down to solar panel. An icon of a solar panel and electricity bolts are overlaid.]

N1: Well, the sun releases something called photons, which solar panels capture and convert into electricity.

[On-screen visual: Camera continues panning down, over two batteries. An icon of a battery is overlaid.]

N1: And at our solar farms we’re creating electricity to power our sewage and water treatment plants. Harnessing the energy of the good old shiny sun.
