A clean alternative to fossil fuels, solar energy generates power without air, water and global warming pollution. Additional benefits of solar energy include stable prices and increased public safety.
Sunlight contains energy. When light from the sun hits an object, the energy turns into heat. Certain materials turn the energy into an electrical current. Captured electrical currents generate electricity and produce solar power.
Solar panels allow photons, or particles of light, to knock electrons free from atoms, generating a flow of energy. A solar panel is made of many, small units of photovoltaic (PV) cells. A photovoltaic cell generates electricity as it absorbs sunlight by separating atoms.
To capture solar energy, a frame connects multiple solar cells together to make a solar module. Several solar modules connect to create a solar panel. Solar panel sizes vary depending on purpose or electricity needs. Bigger solar panels capture more energy from the sun.
Regardless of size, a solar module consists of the following:
Manufacturers then use springs and wire forms to construct solar modules and panels.
