When we talk about solar energy, we refer to the unopposed cleanest, renewable and most reliable source of power. Energy from the sun can be used in many forms. The main one that many people have expressed interest and has attracted many is on the electricity form. What has remained unclear to many is, how can we get electricity from the sun?
Though this is a topic that is deeply handled in schools and collages many still tend to take it lightly even after school. Let’s now look into the details of how electricity can come from the sun. The main components that is needed to get electricity from the sun is the solar panel. The technology behind the solar panel is quite complex and we shall only look on how it helps get electricity.
How to handle solar panel.
Since the solar panel should be in direct contact with the sun rays, it is always set on the roof. The solar panel is made up on a semiconductor material that has silicon. This is what releases electricity in bits when exposed to sunlight and for the concept of electricity. What is contained in the sunlight is called proton, and in this energy is contained.
On the other hand the solar panel contains PV cells. The protons contained in the sunlight may go through three probabilities, they can either be absorbed, reflected or allowed to pass through the cells. In this concept only the absorbed will be used to generate electricity. The main use of the Luminous Solar panel is to help convert the sunlight to electricity from the panel to the Inverter.
One the conversion is done in the solar panel the electricity that is produced is not suitable for domestic use. To make it good for the consumption, it is passed through an inverter that plays another important role.
Since the electricity produced is aligned as a Direct current the inverter then turns it to Alternating Current. At this point and state the connection can then be directed to a loader or domestic consumption With increase in technology it is now possible to achieve and leave within your budget with good utility and cheap electricity.
It has also been voted the cleanest source electricity that has contributed to the conservation of the environment. Today solar energy is not only used in small scale, it has now over taken many other backups that were alternatives to the main grid and now big companies are adopting this.
