The sun transmits energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation. When this radiation is absorbed by the solar cells a chemical reaction occurs, causing rapid electron movement. Because of the way the cells are manufactured with layers of material with differing atomic structures, the electrons are forced to move in one direction, creating direct current or D/C. It then flows into an invertor which converts D/C into alternating current, or A/C to be usable in your home or business
PHOTOVOLTAIC (PV FOR SHORT) IS A TECHNOLOGY THAT CONVERTS LIGHT DIRECTLY INTO ELECTRICITY
FACT: ENOUGH SUNLIGHT REACHES US EVERY 15 MINUTES TO POWER THE WORLD FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR
