How do solar panels work?
You've probably seen solar panels on homes and businesses, but have you ever wondered how they work? Well we've got the answer.
Solar panels create energy out of exposure to daylight. The panels are made up of smaller solar cells that are themselves made up of several layers of semi-conductors.
When sunlight hits the solar cells, it creates an electrical current between these layers called direct current energy. With the help of an inverter, the direct current energy is then converted into usable alternating current which is used to power your home.
