Frequently Asked Question
What is PV & how does it work?
PV stands for photovoltaic. Photo = Light and Voltaic =
A solar cell converts light to electricity.
A solar cell is made of silicon. Computer chips are made
of this same
material. Basically, when light strikes the surface of a solar cell
of it is absorbed into the silicon. This light energy bumps the
loose and causes energy to flow.
By packaging approximately 36 solar cells together a
solar panel or
a solar module is created. When you have more then one solar panels you
create a solar array.
