How Solar Power Works

Solar Panels are made up of Solar cells which convert sunlight into electricity and are made of semiconducting materials, such as silicon. When sunlight is absorbed by these materials, the solar energy knocks electrons loose from their atoms, allowing the electrons to flow through the material to produce electricity. This process of converting light—photons— to electricity—voltage—is called the photovoltaic effect.

Harvesting The Sun’s Energy

The solar cells use the sun’s rays to convert natural energy into power for your home. Scientists have estimated that enough power emanates from the sun in an hour to power the whole world for a year. When sunlight hits the solar panels, the energy is converted into electricity. An inverter then changes the DC energy into AC energy so you can use it just as you would mains electricity..
