Solar energy is electricity produced by capturing the sun’s energy that you can use for your home or business. Sun is a natural nuclear reactor, it releases packets of energy called photons, that travel the 93 million miles from the sun to Earth in about 8.5 mins. Photons impact our planet every hour, that helps generate enough solar energy to theoretically satisfy global energy needs for the whole year.
Solar technology is dramatically improving and the cost of going solar is dropping quickly, so our ability to utilize the sun’s abundance of energy is on the rise.
Recent reports from the IEA, mentioned that solar has become the world’s fastest growing source of power – it’s the first time that solar energy’s growth has surpassed that of all other fuels. It is evident that in the coming years, many will be enjoying the benefits of solar-generated electricity.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Solar power works when photons hit a solar collector, they knock electrons loose from their atoms. If conductors are attached to the positive and negative sides of a cell, it forms an electrical circuit. When electrons flow through a circuit, they generate electricity.
Multiple cells make up a solar panel, and multiple panels can be wired together to form a solar array. The more panels you can deploy, the more energy you can expect to generate.
