How Does a Solar Panel Work

You should be aware that solar panels are classified into two types, these are; ground mounted installations of solar panels mounted on the roof and installing solar panels. Both are technically similar as they are designed to absorb solar energy. However, the only difference between them is their ability to provide comfort adjustment. Here, however, it is how all the solar panels work.

Photovoltaic solar panels are covered with silicon crystals. When struck by sunlight, these crystals produce current that carries cable must be stored in batteries. The panels are usually held in an aluminum frame that is welded to four support posts. During the installation process, these groups can be screwed on the roof of a structure, or mounted on a solid concrete slabs that are laid on the floor. The frames are inclined 30 degrees and face north for maximum absorption of solar energy. Panels “thin films” are cheaper alternatives to photovoltaic panels, but its disadvantage is that they are not as effective in producing electricity.

Each crystalline silicon atoms which are linked together by electrons. These electrons are shared between all the atoms in the crystal. The sun’s rays hit the panel, together electrons absorb light and acquire a higher level of energy and begin to move more freely / excited. When you start moving around the atom they begin to generate an electric current to continue to charge a battery of solar panels.
