Let’s work together for a healthier and greener future.
Solar panel, also known as solar photovoltaic, is a collection of solar cells mounted in a framework that absorbs the sun’s rays and use it as a source of energy that generates electricity. These cells are composed of layers of silicon, phosphorous (negative charge), and boron (positive charge) that are connectedly assembled in a grid-like patterns to form a panel.

The Photovoltaic Effect
Solar energy begins with the sun.
Solar panels convert light from the sun, which is composed of particles of energy called “photons”, into electricity. The surface of the Solar panels absorb the photons that generate energy. This allows the electrons to be released into the electric field in the solar cells pulling these free electrons into a directional current. This process is known as Photovoltaic Effect.
