How Do Solar PV Panels Work?
Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels capture and generate electricity from direct sunlight using photovoltaic cells. These cells consist of multiple layers of a semi-conducting material that is silicon based. When the light shines on these cells, it allows for a current to flow, thus producing electricity.
Solar PV panels can even generate energy on a cloud day, but the stronger the sunshine the more electricity is produced.
The electricity generated by the panels is then sent to an inverter which converts the generated electricity from AC electricity to DC electricity. This DC electricity is what you will use around your property.
