Solar power is the use of the sun's energy either directly as thermal energy (heat) or through the use of photo voltaic cells in solar panels and transparent photo voltaic glass to generate electricity. Standard photo voltaic solar panels are the most efficient application of photostatic.

What is the function of the solar panel?

A solar power panel is able to function using the solar energy which is derived from the sun. Every solar power panel contains many different silicon cells or solar cells. They are building blocks of solar panels. The solar energy derived from the sun is converted into electricity with the help of a solar power panel.

What are the different types of solar panels?

1st Generation Solar Panels;

 Mono crystalline Solar Panels (Mono-SI)

 Poly crystalline Solar Panels (Poly-SI)
Thin-Film Solar Cells (TFSC)

 Amorphous Silicon Solar Cell (A-Si)
Bio hybrid Solar Cell

Cadmium Tellurium Solar Cell (CdTe)

 Concentrated PV Cell (CVP and HCVP).

What is a solar panel and how it works?

Simply a solar panel works by allowing photons, or particles of light, to knock electrons free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity. Solar panels actually comprise many, smaller units called photo voltaic cells. (Photo voltaic simply means they convert sunlight into electricity).

How many solar panels are needed to run a house?

A 2,000 square feet home would be allowed a solar array of 4,000 watts. Depending on the type of panel that you choose, a system of this size would be anywhere from 12-18 solar panels. Keep in mind, this formula to estimate consumption varies depending on who provides your electricity.

What is the standard solar panel dimensions?

Length and Width – Although length and width varies slightly, most companies are manufacturing solar panels in standard sizes. The most typical size used for residential installations is 65 inches by 39 inches, while the common size for commercial applications is 77 inches by 39 inches.
