Solar power is the renovation of sunlight into energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or not directly using resolute solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking techniques to focus a big area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic changes light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two forms of solar energy needs the manufacture of two discrete kinds of solar panels.

One is labeled a solar collector which is used to heat water and then stock it in a tank for sharing when desired. The other sort of panel is called a solar panel, or more formally, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels accumulate the light energy from the Sun and convert it into direct current electricity, which can then be converted to alternating current using an inverter. Intense Solar Power (CSP) systems utilize lenses or mirrors and tracing systems to focus a massive area of sunlight into a small ray.
