HOW SOLAR PANELS WORKS ?
Photovoltaic is an association of two words: photo ” light ” and voltaic ” electricity “. Photovoltaic technology, the term used to describe the hardware that converts solar energy into usable power, generates electricity from light.
At the heart of photovoltaic (PV) technology is a semi-conductor material which can be adapted to release electrons, the negatively charged particles that form the basis of electricity. The most common semi-conductor material used in photovoltaic cells is silicon, an element most commonly found in sand. There is no limitation to its availability as a raw material; silicon is the second most abundant material in the earth’s mass.
All PV cells have two layers of semi conductors, one positively charged and one negatively charged. When light shines on the semi-conductor, the electric field across the junction between these two layers causes electricity to flow. The greater the intensity of the light, the greater the flow of electricity. The electrical circuit is created by many solar cells connected in series within special PV modules. The consequent physical reaction in the solar cells generates direct current, which can be converted to alternating current, depending on requirements. As the PV modules that perform this function have no moving parts, the system requires only minimal maintenance, and are silent in operation. Best of all, they generate electricity without generating any of the harmful emissions currently threatening our environment and climate.
The sun delivers 219,000 billion kilowatt hours of energy every year to the earth – more than 2,500 times more than the total world population currently requires.
A photovoltaic system therefore does not need bright sunlight in order to operate. It can also generate electricity on cloudy days. Due to the reflection of sunlight, days with slight cloud can even result in higher energy yields than days with a completely cloudless sky.
PV (Photovoltaic Solar Panels) collect energy from the sun and use it to generate solar electricity. This electricity is fed into your home and can be used to power home appliances or lighting. You can reduce your energy bills, and even make money from the government FIT (feed in tariff) and make even more by selling excess electricity back to the national grid! They produce clean energy with no waste and no carbon emissions, therefore they are good for the planet and the environment.
