Photovoltaic Solar Power is a much more popular form of solar power. It is also a direct electricity source. The system has solar cells made of a strong semiconductor material (silicon) which is found in abundance on the surface of the earth. The cells are then wired together forming solar panels, which are subsequently wired to a circuit. When the sunlight strikes these silicon cells, these panels generate electric current, which is connected to an external load and powers it. A single solar cell is not enough to produce sufficient electricity; therefore multiple cells are connected to each other to form an array of cells called solar modules or solar panels. Solar electricity is a renewable source of energy that has been with us since the onset of life. The sun is very promising as a source of energy. As much as solar was expensive in the past, during the last 30 years alone scientists have come up with a good and reliable way of tapping the energy from the sun. Solar energy is captured through solar panels and converted to solar electricity using Photovoltaic (PV) technology. PV solar panels are longer lasting and efficiently convert energy from the sun to electricity.
