How does a Solar Energy Panel Work




Solar panels use layers of special materials called semi-conductors that create electricity when exposed to sufficient sunlight.  A typical solar panel generates 24 volts DC (Direct Current like a car battery) so a number of panels are joined together in series to make a voltage that is suitable for the input of an inverter. The inverter transforms DC to AC (Alternating Current like that used in your home power points) power.
