What is a solar panel?

A solar panel is a device that converts light into electrical energy. Solar panels are made of modules, which are typically made of silicon cells. When sunlight shines on the solar panel, the silicon cells convert the light into electricity, which can be used to power devices or stored in a battery for later use.

How do solar panels work?

Solar panels work by converting sunlight into electricity. The solar panel consists of a series of cells made of silicon. When the sunlight hits the cell, it knocks electrons loose from the atoms in the silicon. These free electrons flow through the metal contacts on the top and bottom of the cell and create an electric current.
