Solar Panel

Solar power is the alteration of sunlight into electrical energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or not directly using concerted solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to spotlight a huge area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two kinds of solar energy necessitates the manufacture of two discrete types of solar panels.

One is called a solar collector which is used to warm up water and then stock it in a tank for dispersal when desired. The other sort of panel is called a solar panel, or more properly, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels collect the light rays from the Sun and change it into direct current electricity, which can then be switched to alternating current using an inverter. Resolute Solar Power (CSP) systems exploit lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a big section of sunlight into a little ray.
