Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electrical energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or indirectly using resolute solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking procedures to center a huge area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic alters light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two types of solar energy necessitates the manufacture of two separate sorts of solar panels.

One is named a solar collector which is used to heat water and then store it in a tank for distribution when needed. The other form of panel is called a solar panel, or more officially, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels gather the light radiation from the Sun and alter it into direct current electricity, which can then be switched to alternating current using an inverter. Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems use lenses or mirrors and tracing systems to focus a huge area of sunlight into a small shaft of light.
