Solar Photovoltaic Panels

Solar photovoltaic panels are also known as solar PVs; they produce electric power from solar radiation and rays from sunlight. Solar panels convert light energy to electric power by the photovoltaic effect. 

Photovoltaic solar panels capture energy from sunlight and energy captured by these solar panels is commonly known as solar power, sunlight energy harvesting is an example of solar energy that is renewable.

Each solar Photovoltaic panel consists of an array of single photovoltaic cells called solar cells, they are grouped together to make one solar panel. Each photovoltaic solar cell produces a constant voltage or direct current (similar to battery voltage).

The energy output of each solar cell is too small on its own, so solar cells are grouped together in a panel in order to produce large power outputs that we can benefit from and use.
