Solar panels – What are they and how do they work?

Solar panelsSolar panels are panels that are designed to absorb the sun’s rays and use them as a source of energy for generating heat or electricity. Of course, many of us know this as solar panels have become quite popular nowadays. Nevertheless, few of us know how exactly do they work.

When the light hits the solar panels with photons the panel converts them into electrons. These produced electrons flow out of the panel and go into the inverter and other electrical devices. The inverter converts the “DC” power into altering current of “AC” power.

The latter is a type of electricity that powers the computer, television, toaster etc. Check out the whole process in the video below!
