What do Solar Panels Do

What do Solar Panels Do We all know that solar photovoltaic (PV) panels convert sunlight into usable electricity, but few people know the real science behind this process. This week on the blog we are going to bring the kitty-gritty science behind solar. This may sound complicated, but it boils down to all photovoltaic effects; The ability of a substance to emit electrons when bathed in light. What Is A Solar Panel? Solar energy begins with the Sun. Solar panels (also known as "PV panels") are used to convert light from the sun, which is made up of particles of energy called "photons", into electricity whose Can be used to perform electric loads. Solar panels can be used for a wide variety of applications, including cabins, telecommunications equipment, remote power systems for remote
