Solar power is the alteration of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or circuitously using intense solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to center a big area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic changes light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two types of solar energy necessitates the manufacture of two discrete types of solar panels.
One is labeled a solar collector which is used to heat up water and then store it in a tank for sharing when required. The other sort of panel is called a solar panel, or more properly, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels gather the light energy from the Sun and change it into direct current electricity, which can then be altered to alternating current using an inverter. Concerted Solar Power (CSP) systems utilize lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a massive spot of sunlight into a small beam.
