what are these lightpipes and how do they help solar?

    “Lightpipes” have a variety of names: light tubes, sun tubes, solarlight pipes, etc.

    The basic idea of these pipes, whatever you want to call them, is that they move natural light from one location to another.  Which is a fancy way of saying that light travels down the tube to another location.  Tubes are set up with one end facing sunlight and the other end facing a room, solar panel, etc.

    I guess in some ways it’s almost like using a magnifying glass to focus the sun… just without the ant-burning ability.
