How does solar power work?
Have you ever wondered how solar panels turn sunlight into electricity? And how does shade
affect a solar photovoltaic (PV) system, like on a cloudy day?
How sunlight is converted to electricity
When sunlight hits the PV cells in a solar panel, electrons are knocked loose and move around.
These loose electrons can be captured so they move in the same direction around a circuit. An
electric current is formed by this flow of electrons in the same direction.
By connecting many PV cells to each other in a panel and wiring a number of panels together…
