Solar power is the renovation of sunlight into energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or circuitously using concerted solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking methods to focus a great area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two forms of solar energy necessitates the manufacture of two separate forms of solar panels.

One is entitled a solar collector that is used to heat water and then stock it in a tank for dispersal when wanted. The other sort of panel is called a solar panel, or more officially, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels gather the light rays from the Sun and alter it into direct current electricity, that can then be altered to alternating current using an inverter. Intense Solar Power (CSP) systems apply lenses or mirrors and tracing systems to focus a huge area of sunlight into a small beam.
