Solar power is the alteration of sunlight into energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or circuitously using resolute solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking methods to spotlight a big area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic transfers light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two kinds of solar energy calls for the manufacture of two single sorts of solar panels.
One is called a solar collector that is used to heat up water and then store it in a tank for dispersal when required. The other type of panel is called a solar panel, or more formally, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels gather the light radiation from the Sun and convert it into direct current electricity, which can then be altered to alternating current using an inverter. Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems utilize lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to center a massive part of sunlight into a little ray.
