Solar Energy is simply the energy harnessed from the Sun. The Sun's radiation(heat & light) is the energy that is converted into electricity using solar photovoltaic(PV) cells. The solar PV cellsworks on “photovoltaic effect”, i.e. production of electric current and voltage upon exposure to sunlight. The solar panels that are commonly used consist of numerous solar PV cells that absorb the sunlight and convert it into usable electricity in form of AC current.
Working of Solar Power Plant
Reduce your dependency on fossil fuels
Solar PV systems do not require any fossil fuels to run, therefore it helps you to be less dependent on expensive and limited natural resources.
Reduce your electricity bills
Solar PV systems absorb the free sunlight and converts it into usable electric power. So you only pay for the extra electricity that you consume from the grid. Moreover, you will generate clean electricity for at least two decades.
Solar Energy is not only sustainable but also renewable, it is the natural source of power to generate electricity. Solar energy makes no noise when it generates electricity through solar pv panels. Also, solar energy helps in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Solar PV systems are easy to install on any area which is shade free and is accessible to sunlight, it doesn’t require much maintenance and runs for a very long time. Solar PV systems absorbs the sun radiation so it also acts as a coolant for the rooftop.
