How Solar Power Works
Solar panels are made up of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells. Solar cells consist of semiconductor materials that convert sunlight to electricity. A small solar electric system can be a reliable, clean, and efficient source of electricity for your home or office.
Solar PV systems are built by connecting multiple solar panels together to create a solar array. Because of this modular design, PV systems can be built to meet any electrical requirement, no matter what size. PV systems can be small enough to supply power for a single home, and large enough to power a massive commercial warehouse or office building.
