The solar revolution of the last two decades has made solar energy an increasingly powerful force in the energy arena.
Solar Panels use arrays of solar photovoltaic cells to convert photons into usable electricity, then we are provided with clean, renewable energy from the sun.
So what are Solar Panels?
Solar Panels are a form of active solar power, a term that describes how solar panels make use of the sun’s energy: solar panels harvest sunlight and actively convert it to electricity. Solar Cells, or photovoltaic cells, are arranged in a grid-like pattern on the surface of the solar panel. These solar voltaic cells collect sunlight during the daylight hours and covert it into electricity.
Solar panels are typically constructed with cystalline silicon, which is used in other industries (such as the microprocessor industry), and the more expensive gallium arsenide, which is produced exclusively for use in photovoltaic (solar) cells.
