Solar Energy Simplified

Energy from the sun, solar energy, is harvested with semiconductor technology called Photo-Voltaic (PV) converts light energy into electricity. 

PV, Photovoltaic, Solar Panels:

The above are interchangeable descriptors for the same product. Essentially panels that convert it into electrical energy.  Solar panels are durable; most come with performance warranties of 20-25 years once purchased they continue to produce electrical power for many years with minimal maintenance basically just keeping them clean. A particularly useful characteristic of solar photovoltaic power generation is that it can be installed on any scale; from a single solar powered garden light to an array of many kilowatts.

History of Photo Voltaic

In 1839 Alexandre Edmond Becquerel discovered the photovoltaic effect and explained how electricity could be generated from sunlight. Becquerel claimed that "shining light on an electrode submerged in a conductive solution would create an electric current." photovoltaic power continued to be inefficient and photovoltaics were used mainly for the purpose of measuring light (light meters for photography). More than one hundred years later, in 1941, Russell Ohl an American engineer invented the solar cell.
