Electrical Experimenter (04:05) September 1916

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Why not extract the energy from the sun direct? Mr. Theodore W. Case's new photo electric cell produces electricity simply by letting the sun shine on the cell; it may be said that this is the ideal way of obtaining the sun's energy. The new cell furnishes but a very weak and as yet an almost useless current. But a beginning has been made and a way has been shown us. It will pave the road for greater things to come."
This issue of Electrical Experimenter from September 1916 features the cover story “The Mysteries of Ultra-Violet Light” by Hugo Gernsback. Other stories cover the invention of the photoelectric cell with its potential for solar power in the future and new developments in radio and antenna construction.
