WHAT IS SOLAR ENERGY?
Solar energy means the energy received from the sun and is the most important source of energy for all living forms. The energy has been produced by the sun for billions of years and enough of this energy is hitting the Earth every hour to meet all of humanity’s power needs for an entire year. It is most abundant renewable source of energy available free of cost and unlike non-renewable sources such as fossil fuels it can be used at a higher rate.
Solar panel harnesses the natural energy of the sun to produce electricity. Solar cells absorb the visible rays of solar radiation and convert them to electricity for our power usage. Solar Panels don’t need direct sunlight to produce electricity but generates most energy in direct sunlight.
Solar-powered photovoltaic (PV) panels convert the sun’s rays into electricity by exciting electrons in silicon cells using the photons of light from the sun. This electricity can then be used to power your home or business.
SOLAR PANELS CAN PRODUCE POWER EVEN WITHOUT DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
