How do solar panels work?

One of the most exciting and cost-effective ways to power your home is through solar energy. With the help of solar panels, you can harness the unlimited power of the sun to meet your energy needs and even earn credits on your utility bills.

So how do solar panels work?

Essentially, solar panels convert sunlight into electricity using photovoltaic (PV) cells. The panels are typically installed on rooftops or other areas that receive ample sunlight throughout the day. Solar panels typically consist of silicon cells, which are sandwiched between a protective glass layer and a plastic or metal substrate. When a photon strikes a panel, it excites electrons, completing an electric circuit that generates direct current (DC). This DC current is then converted into alternating current (AC) using an inverter which is then transferred to your home.

There are various types of solar panels on the market, each with its own pros and cons, ranging from efficient but expensive monocrystalline panels to more affordable but less efficient polycrystalline panels.:

Despite these differences, the common goal of all solar panels is to capture and use the sun's energy to power your home.

How can you clean your solar panels?

How to clean the solar panels?

Solar panels work by harnessing energy from the sun, which means they need to be exposed to as much sunlight as possible to operate effectively. However, factors such as dirt, dust, and debris can cause a reduction in solar panel efficiency...
