Do chloroplasts create energy?

Chloroplasts capture the energy in sunlight and use it to synthesize energy-rich carbohydrates. This food made by chloroplasts provides the chemical energy needed by all forms of life. Both mitochondria and chloroplasts are sites of production of ATP, the energy currency of the cell.
