Solar power is the renovation of sunlight into electrical energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or not directly using concentrated solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking methods to focus 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 needs the manufacture of two separate forms of solar panels.

One is named a solar collector that is used to heat water and then supply it in a tank for sharing when wanted. The other kind 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. Concerted Solar Power (CSP) systems apply lenses or mirrors and tracing systems to focus a big section of sunlight into a little beam.
