"This project attempted to add to the growing body of research done on solar panels and energy by asking if adding a layer of film with an imprinted bougainvillea structure would increase the power generated from the panel. I then compared these results to those gathered with a rose petal film, a way of improving solar efficiency that has been proven to work."
