About Solar Panels
How do Solar Panels Work?
So, here’s the question you may be asking! How can the sun provide us with electricity? Let us start by stating the basics.
The sun releases tiny packets of energy called photons. These packets of energy hit your solar panels and are captured by the cells in your solar panels. These cells convert the photons into electrons using photovoltaic cell technology. This energy then passes through your solar panels as direct current (DC).
After passing through your solar panels the direct current is then converted into an alternating current (AC). This alternating current is then added to your power supply to power your home appliances.
SOLAR ENERGY BASICS
- Our sun releases tiny packet of energy called photons.
- Photons hits your solar panels and are then converted into electrons of electricity using photovoltaic cell technology.
- The electrical energy that passes through the solar panels is called direct current (DC).
- Your Solar Inverter then converts the DC into an alternating current (AC) that is needed to power your home appliances.
What are Solar Panels made of?
A Solar panel or Photovoltaic (PV) panel is made up of solar cells. Solar cells are commonly made up of silicon, a semiconductor. Just like a battery, they are built with a positive and a negative layer, which together create an electric field.
When photons hit a solar cell, they knock electrons from their atoms and it forms an electrical circuit if the conductors are attached to the positive and negative sides of the cell. They generate electricity when the electrons flow through this circuit.
Multiple solar cells make up a solar panel, and multiple panels (modules) are needed to form a solar array. The more panels you put up together, the more energy can be generated.
Solar panels produce a direct current (DC) which can be converted to an alternating current (AC) through the use of a solar inverter. AC is the essential needed to power your home.
