Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or indirectly using concentrated solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to spotlight a big 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 discrete sorts of solar panels.

One is called a solar collector which is used to heat up water and then stock it in a tank for dispersal when wanted. The other type of panel is called a solar panel, or more formally, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels collect the light radiation from the Sun and alter it into direct current electricity, that can then be converted to alternating current using an inverter. Resolute Solar Power (CSP) systems apply lenses or mirrors and tracing systems to direct a large spot of sunlight into a little shaft of light.
