WHAT ARE SOLAR PANELS AND HOW DO THEY WORK?
Solar panels are photoreactive devices that convert sunlight into electricity. Over the past decade, these efficient and reliable solar power sources have become commonplace in our everyday lives! But how do they work? Simply stated: You collect some of the most abundant resource on this planet – sunshine-and then use it to produce clean energy for your home or business any time you want with little maintenance required.
WHAT ARE SOLAR PANELS MADE OF?
Silicon’s popularity as a material for making solar cells has led to its use in most commercially available photovoltaic (PV) systems. The first step of these panels is an array of small, black squares that both absorb sunlight and turn it into electricity-generating positively charged electrons through photoelectron emission processes during the day; then at night, they grab those same particles back up so your home can continue operating without using any fossil fuels!
TYPES OF SOLAR PANELS
Traditional Solar Panels
Traditional solar panels consist of monocrystalline or polycrystalline silicon. Monocrystalline is made up of more pure cells that look darker than other types, and they’re also more efficient at converting sunlight into electricity for your home’s needs! Polysilicon is less expensive because it’s created through a cheaper method – melting down raw materials like sand which allows us to produce them faster too; not just in volume but oftentimes even grams-per-watt over time.
Thin-Film Solar Panels
Thin-film solar panels are a more affordable option than their monocrystalline counterparts. They’re also lighter and flexible, which means they can be integrated into tighter spaces with less waste material overall (less installation time!). Plus if we get our energy from renewable resources like the sun then these types of cells become even better investments over time!
