The Sun does not just provide us within heat and light. This huge ball in the sky is the source of all energy on the Earth.
The Sun is also an important alternative energy. Heat from the Sun can be used to make electricity and heat our homes and water.
Fuels such as coal, oil and gas are running out. Burning these fuels is harmful to the environment. It causes pollution and acid rain which destroys forests and kills animals. The Sun's energy can never be used up, so it will not run out. It is a safe, cheap and clean power supply.
