Solar panels

Also called Photovoltaic Panels, these are devices that use sunlight to produce electricity. The crucial piece is composed of several photovoltaic cells which contain materials capable of absorbing photons from the sun’s rays and releasing electrons. These move in an electric circuit producing a current, which can then be used to power electrical equipment in homes or businesses. Find out how solar panels work, what the advantages are and how to make them a green and economically attractive investment.
