How it WorksLearn About Different Types Of Solar Panels

How do PV solar panels work?

In simple terms, solar panels contain vast arrays of photovoltaic (PV) cells made of thin silicon wafers that convert sunlight into electricity by capturing light photons. Specifically treated semi-conductor cells (PV or solar cells) with positive and negative faces direct electrons released by photons to create an electrical current.

You can read a more detailed description of how solar panels work at the Florida Solar Energy Center or you can learn more by reading our blog.

As with any electricity generation system you need a way to not only generate but to harvest, convert, store and release this electricity in a stable and efficient manner.
