Solar panels are devices that convert sunlight into electricity. They are made up of solar cells, which are made of semiconductor materials such as silicon. When sunlight hits a solar cell, it knocks electrons loose from the atoms of the semiconductor material. These electrons then flow through the cell, creating an electric current.
The amount of electricity that a solar panel can generate depends on the amount of sunlight it receives, the efficiency of the solar cells, and the size of the solar panel.
Solar panels can be used to power a variety of devices, including homes, businesses, and vehicles. They can also be used to generate electricity for the grid.
Here is a more detailed explanation of how solar panels work:
Solar panels are a clean and renewable source of energy. They do not produce any emissions, and they can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
